Read from December 26 to 29, 2010

This book is not about being in the restaurant business. Maybe 10 pages actually discuss the restaurant. Mostly it is a series of vignettes in chapter form (naming the chapters are food does not make for a food book!). Generally, each chapter is about a person. How great they are, how gorgeous, how clever, how nice or mean, how rich or poor, and how great the author herself is for being nice to said person.

A lot of bragging. The author brags about herself, her parents, her aunts/uncles, her money, her parents' housekeeper (there is more about her cooking than the restaurants), her wealthy childhood, her loving smart gorgeous relatives, and did I mention herself?

Found this on the library shelf in the food section--which matches the Loc info. It's wrong.

A fast read if you can giggle at the bragging. The author's family is not nearly as exceptional as she thinks. They seem very normal.
