Gabrielle Hamilton accomplishes more in one day, chronically short-staffed and with a baby on her breast, than I do in a month of Sundays. There is much to relate to in Hamilton's reflections on her eccentric family, her curious career and her even more curious marriage whether you're striving to run your own business or just be the perfect house guest. Hamilton also manages to burst the the fantasy of "Italian-Italian" life while still fetishising that nation's beloved institutions of good, simple food and strong matriarchs.

Highly recommend the audiobook, read by the author. This book kept me company walking through the Mission District in San Francisco, driving lazily through Western Massachusetts and endless dicing and chopping in my kitchen in Brooklyn.
