really liked it
bookshelves: food

I enjoyed Ruth Reichl's three memoirs much more than I'd expected to. She'd always gotten on my nerves as the Times food critic -- I found her prose both purple and utterly solipsistic. However, in memoir format talking about herself and her personal experience of making and eating food is entirely appropriate, and her lifelong relationship with food and cooking is pretty interesting. This volume covers Reichl's diverse education and experience in food -- including everything from living in a Bay Area hippie cooperative, to the Alice Waters local food movement, to her start as a journalist covering chi-chi restaurant openings in L.A.
