You know Mark Twain the celebrated author, but do you know Mark Twain the glutton?
Nick Offerman, with the assistance of a chef and some friends, “presents the story of Twain’s life through the lens of eight of Twain’s favorite foods” in a new Audible Original. Titled Twain’s Feast, the audiobook uses the author’s life as a springboard to explore America’s culinary and ecological history—and to sample some amazing dishes along the way.
With Andy Beahrs’ book of the same name as a guide, Beahrs and Offerman “take documentary excursions across America, illuminating each dish and bringing to life a broad sampling of Twain’s writing.” We have an exclusive clip from one such excursion, in which Offerman eats raccoon for the first time. Listen below to find out if he’s a fan:
