Another captivating account of life in the kitchen and haute cuisine. Ruth Reichl continues her story in this engaging sequel to Tender At the Bone--from life in a commune with her first husband, meetings and travels with great chefs, to food writer for the Los Angeles and New York Times. With great candor she writes of her family, her failed first marriage, finding true love with her second husband, and joyously, motherhood at age forty. She is now editor of Gourmet magazine.

restaurants, cooking, food tales interspersed with personal angst and travels--mostly well written and funny

While living on a commune Ruth Reichl eats at pretentious restaurants in her job as a restaurant critic. It's a clash of worldviews in this follow up to her earlier memoir, Tender at the Bone, and as in the earlier book, the author does not disappoint. This food memoir is entertaining, amusing, highly personal, and even features the occasional recipe. Pour yourself a glass of Merlot and sit back to get acquainted with Reichl, former editor of Gourmet Magazine.
