Publishers Text

In this engaging memoir, food writer Ruth Reichl, author of the acclaimed "Tender at the Bone", dishes up a celebration of love, life, humour and the pleasures of the table. Ruth Reichl's pursuit of good food and good company takes her from New York to China and from France to Los Angeles. Along the way she cooks and dines with world-famous chefs and is initiated into the arcane mysteries of French haute cuisine, recreating these unforgettable encounters so that readers can almost taste the earthy truffles of Provence and the tang of Chinese Dry-fried Shrimp. Whether poking holes in the pretensions of food critics, chronicling the sad, sweet parting from her first husband, the death of her beloved father or the joy of falling in love, Ruth Reichl tells her story with warm humour and a sense of the absurd.
