really liked it
Read in June, 2010

Overall delightful read/memoir about San Francisco Chronicle and eventually NY Times food writer Kim Severson's experiences with food, how they were shaped, and interviews/musings on several food icons like Marcella Hazan, Rachel Ray, Marion Cunningham, Alice Waters, her mom, Ruth Riechl, Edna Lewis and Leah Chase. I particularly loved the beginning where she relocates from Alaska to San Francisco, falls in love with Alice Waters, Meyer lemons and all things California cuisine. Severson has a great writing style and manages to portray her personal identity struggles (alcholism, feeling like a fraud, gay oh and finding god)through food writing and learning from women she admires. Here here!
