by Ruth Reichl
A rollicking good story filled me with warmth and humor. Growing up, her Aunt and aunt’s cook looked after Ruth and that is where she learned to cook. Many of her best stories revolve around food, memorable meals and disastrous parties! SHe has included some of the pivotal recipes including her best ever Artpark Brownies!
The author writes about her mother’s rather unstable mental state with a light and loving touch, including a story of her brother’s engagement party that turned into a huge fiasco with week old and discarded food on the menu!I truly enjoyed reading Reichl’s book and look forward to reading more by her! Great read.
