    It is just a case of don’t buy it FOR the recipes, but don’t necessarily ignore it because OF the life story. Sometimes the most unexpected things can and do go together without a problem.

    Subtitled "A Love Story with Recipes" this is part memoir, part cookbook and extraordinary as both. Luisa Weiss, The Wednesday Chef, is a beautiful writer and a lovely cook.

Publishers Text

It takes courage to turn your life upside down, especially when everyone is telling you how lucky you are. But sometimes what seems right feels deeply wrong. My Berlin Kitchen tells the story of how one thoroughly confused, kitchen-mad romantic broke off her engagement, quit her dream job, and went across the ocean in search of happiness. Luisa Weiss was working in New York after college and living with her future fiancé when she decided to bake, roast, and stew her way through the huge collection of recipes she’d been clipping and hoarding for years. The blog she wrote to document her adventures, The Wednesday Chef, soon became a sensation. But she never stopped longing for her childhood home in Berlin. After months of heartache and a painful breakup, Luisa decided to take the plunge and move back to Berlin. Anyone who enjoyed Julie and Julia will laugh and cheer and cook alongside Luisa as she takes us into her heart and tells us how she gave up everything, only to find love waiting where she least expected it. Luisa will seduce you with stories of hunting for an apartment with her new German boyfriend, battling with white asparagus at the tail end of the season, orchestrating an awkward three-family Thanksgiving dinner, and working through the difficulties of settling into her new life by baking batches (and batches) of impossible German Christmas cookies. She will have you rooting for Max, the first man to really understand her divided heart. And she will convince you that while Paris has its magic, when it comes to real inspiration in the kitchen, and in life, there is nothing like Berlin.
