I liked this book a part more than I thought I would. This is a memoir of Ruth Reichl, editor of Food bon vivant journal and Unfamiliar York Times dining room cartoonist. The stories about her mother and her terrible fare concoctions were hilarious. I loved following her through her travels and many different fare experiences, with important modus operandis in her life peppered throughout the book. I'm looking forward to reading her next two books.
