In Ruth Reichl’s brilliant, intimate memoir, we discover how the New York Times dining critic and former editor in chief of Gourmet first fell in love with food and storytelling. Beginning as a child in Manhattan and Connecticut, where her mother cooked strange (and occasionally dangerous) dishes, Reichl takes us to Berkeley in the 1970s, where she lived an eccentric, bohemian lifestyle and became an essential part of California’s delicious revolution. As the book comes to an end, Reichl’s exciting career as a young restaurant critic in San Francisco is just starting to take off. Fresh, funny and moving, this gem of a book is a must-read for food lovers.
