it was ok
Read from January 10 to March 28, 2012

Got halfway through, had to return to the library, meant to recheck it out, never got around to it- and never really cared. It's rare I don't finish a book, and it wasn't that this book was so terrible, in fact, parts were enthralling and full of brand new facts. But the writing wasn't as sweet as its subject, and there was too much emphasis on the ingredients over the stories & culture behind them. Maybe one day, I'll read the other half, but I'll definitely be eating a lot of dessert between now and when I get to the end of this book.
