Hard to get past my mild dislike of Jones that developed and grew as I read this book. I'm not sure why. Despite her remarkable credentials, accomplished friends and colleagues, and interesting experience, I found her a little tiresome. I wanted to read about her experiences, but apparently I preferred that someone else narrate them. For one thing, the book feels awfully superficial--I wanted more (and yet less of her). And it's hard to reconcile the fact that I read her memoir because of her contact with all sorts of amazing writers and cooks, and yet found her annoyingly name-droppy.
