Description
At an early age, Ruth Reichl discovered that "food could be a way of making sense of the world.... If you watched people as they ate, you could find out who they were." Her deliciously crafted memoir-with-recipes begins with Reichl's mother, the notorious food-poisoner known as the Queen of Mold. Reichl also introduces us to the characters who shaped her world and her tastes, from the gourmand Monsieur du Croix, who served Reichl her first soufflé, to those at her politically correct table in Berkeley who championed the organic food revolution in the 1970s. This edition includes a reader's guide, family photos, and a 2010 afterword by Reichl.

"While all good food writers are humorous ... few are so riotously, effortlessly entertaining as Ruth Reichl.... [She] is also witty, fair-minded, brave, and a wonderful writer."—NYTBR
