I love food. And I love reading about food written by people who love food. I wish there were a little more food and a little less "my mother was manic-depressive and my father was eccentric and emotionally absent so I found comfort in various maids and cooks who taught me to fill myself with food and express my love for people through food because I was incapable of having real emotional relationships" but then again it is a memoir. The construction was messy and the prose nothing special, but she does know how to describe the experience of eating perfectly.
