Delectable, as both a memoir and as top notch food writing (recipes included). One of the few books I need to (and do) own a copy of. Whether recounting her eccentric family life as a girl, her bohemian young adulthood, or her various travels and culinary explorations, Reichl is funny, warm, poignant, and brings an infectious appetite to the table and to life.*

(*If you gagged at this, I don't blame you.)
