really liked it

Ayun Halliday is such a very keen observer of herself and of others, and I love how her voice in her books reminds me of my own issues when it comes to food. How she turned from a picky eater to an adventurous foodie is a remarkable journey with lots of culinary twists and turns, and her accounts of her forays in the kitchen and in the restaurants of the world are oftentimes punctuated with hilarious anecdotes. I love how sincere Ayun is, and she does not hold back with the frank and foul language, which all the more makes this book one hell of a powerhouse of a personal memoir/food journal. And of course, her recollection of her Easy Bake Oven days and her adventures with the Betty Crocker kids cookbook were some of her treasured gems which she shared in this book.
