A delicious memoir that takes us from Buenos Aires to New York to Berlin as the author, driven by wanderlust and an unrelenting appetite, finds purpose, passion, and unexpected flavor.
 
After putting her dream of opening her own restaurant on hold, Layne Mosler moves to Buenos Aires to write about food. But she is also in search of that elusivesomething that could give shape to her life. One afternoon, fleeing a tango club following a terrible turn on the dance floor, she impulsively asks her taxista to take her to his favorite restaurant. Soon she is savoring one of the best steaks of her life and, in the weeks that follow, repeating the experiment with equally delectable results. So begins the gustatory adventure that becomes the basis for Mosler’s cult blog,Taxi Gourmet. It eventually takes her to New York City, where she continues her food quests, hailing cabs and striking up conversations from the back seat, until she meets a pair of extraordinary lady cab drivers who convince her to become a taxi driver herself. Between humbling (and hilarious) episodes behind the wheel, Mosler reads about the taxi drivers in Berlin, who allegedly know as much about Nietzsche as they do about sausage. Intrigued, she travels to the German capital, where she develops a passion for the city, its restlessness, its changing flavors, and a certain fellow cab driver who shares her love of the road.

With her vivid descriptions of places and people and food, Mosler has given us a beguiling book that speaks to the beauty of chance encounters and the pleasures of not always knowing your destination.
From the Hardcover edition.

“The food descriptions are indeed scrumptious, but it’s the striking everyday-life details surrounding Mosler’s discoveries that make Driving Hungry a pleasurable read.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune 

“While there are descriptions of many wonderful and awful meals in this book, they never seem to be its real subject. This is likely true of many food books, but Mosler's is quite openly a quest for something more substantial. All the conversations with cab drivers about doner kebab, bife and baklava are just ways of looking for love.” —Chicago Tribune 

“Mosler is a fantastic storyteller but also a talented food writer. . . . In Driving Hungry, Mosler builds relationships around food: the meals she enjoys are often solitary, but are always the product of—or the drive behind—a memorable interaction. Food, in other words, is not just a universal connector; it’s a universal language. It recalls A Moveable Feast, Hemingway’s seminal memoir of life in Paris in the 1920s. In both accounts, the primary interest is human interaction, but you get the clear sense that none of it would have happened—between Hemingway and Fitzgerald, or Mosler and her various drivers and passengers—if there hadn’t been a good dish on the table.” —The National Post, Canada 

“Sparkling.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

Driving Hungry .  .  . will absolutely inspire your restaurant exploration this summer.” —Bustle.com

"An invigorating read, a paean to taking the serendipitous road to wherever it happens to lead.” —Booklist 

Driving Hungry brims with similarly tasty advice. And while it provides a gastronomic tour spanning three cities, the characters Ms. Mosler encounters are the true takeaway.” —The New York Observer

"Driving Hungry is wonderful. Whether she's tangoing at 5 a.m. in Buenos Aires or driving a cab at 5 a.m. on a New York winter morning or eating a dish called Dead Grandma in Berlin, Layne Mosler is an intrepid, charming, inspiring guide to life as it should be lived: with open-minded hunger, whether it's for goat roti, adventure, or true love.” —Kate Christenen, author of Blue Plate Special and How to Cook a Moose
 
“Building on the success of her blog, Taxi Gourmet, Mosler recounts the story of her transcontinental search for a vocation, which propelled the author into dancing in tango clubs in Buenos Aires, becoming a cab driver in New York City, and falling in love with the city of Berlin. . . . Mosler's lively and accessible writing style joyfully captures the satisfaction gained by trusting your instincts and seeking out new places, food, and people.” —Kirkus Reviews
