did not like it
bookshelves: adult, listened-to-audiobook, non-fiction
Read in March, 2008

i listened to this one in the hopes that it might entertain me in much the same way that garlic & sapphires by ruth reichl had. not. so. much. i mean, look at the title! it’s got food, cooking, travel and humor all mixed together–what could be better? well, parts of it were enjoyable, but it got so bogged down in the politics of the kitchen and the restaurant business and then went really deeply into the intricacies of how to make hand-made pasta and butcher an animal that i just got bored. the reader’s gravelly voice didn’t really do anything for me either. i was glad when it was done.
