    Having thoroughly enjoyed Garlic and Sapphires, I was thrilled to find this first of Reichl s memoirs on the 2 for 3 table at Barnes Noble.In the preface, Reichl admits to modifying certain stories for dramatic effect But unless she s made entire years out of whole cloth, she s lived one hell of an interesting life Throughou

    The culinary memoirs I ve read prior to this one have been written by a different sort of chef Julia Child, Jacques P pin, Marcus Samuelsson With that kind of background, it s probably not too surprising that I feel let down by Reichl s first memoir The beginnings of both the book and her life were pretty good Interesting, fun, funny

    This is a memoir built around food and as Reichl put it, she decided that instead of pictures she d give recipes throughout to paint a picture of her relationships The Author s Note tells us, Everything here is true, but it may not be entirely factual In some cases I have compressed events in others I have made two people into one I have occasionally embroidered That sort of thing usual

    This was a really well written food memoir from a time when food memoirs weren t really a thing I felt it was a bit of a cross between Fun Home by Alison Bechdel and Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel for the family antics mixed with recipes from the narration I didn t really know anything about the author, so I found the bits about her family or personally lifeinteresting than how she w
