it was amazing
bookshelves: 2007, favorites, food-and-drink, biographical
Read in January, 2007

The third in her autobiographical series, this one goes through her years as the restaurant critic at the New York Times. Fascinating stuff; to-die-for descriptions of wonderful meals juxtaposed with descriptions of how differently she was treated when she disguised herself as a civilian, stories about nasty newspaper politics and tales of obnoxious food snobs. It’s definitely my favorite of the three books.
