“The Indiana Jones of food writers.” –Liane Hansen, Weekend Edition

“Walsh approaches food as an amateur culinary anthropologist, exploring the origins and preparations of foods, and seasoning his tales with cultural lore. . . . A treat for cooks and food lovers alike.” –The Christian Science Monitor

“[Walsh] can best be described as a cultural anthropologist with a serious face-stuffing issue. . . . The nice thing about Walsh’s writing is that he’s always aware of the big implications lurking around each subject but resists the temptations of didacticism.” –The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“[Walsh writes] with gusto about everything from the blue-footed chickens of Bresse to Spam musubi on the Kona coast. He ostensibly is discussing food, but is actually taking on far more” –Austin Chronicle
