About the Book
From Michael Wild, friend of Magnolia and owner of Oakland’s acclaimed BayWolf restaurant, comes a new Magnolia publication: "What the Wild Things Ate," a photographic travelogue of the mouth-watering meals Wild and his family ate while in London, Paris, Beaune, and Dijon earlier this year. With photos and commentary by Wild’s son David, this book is guaranteed to make you hungry, and is slim enough to fit in your carry-on bag. Detailed contact information for each restaurant is provided, making "What the Wild Things Ate" a handy companion for travelers with a fondness for gourmet food.
