Very Good. 4 cassettes-6 hours-abridged Tapes fine-box vg but with lib stickers-4 tapes-abridged-6 hours-read by author-The second volume of Ruth Reichl's autobiography takes her into adulthood, and chronicles her romantic life as well as her evolution into a food critic. It includes accounts of the memorable food that accompanied memorable moments in her life, including her days in a Berkeley commune, her second husband's favorite chocolate cake, and a trip to China with her father. Recipes are included.
This is a memoir of a food critic! It is personal and funny and sheds an unflattering light on the gourmet restaurant scene. I found it delightful... a good summer read with some darker undertones. The recipes at the end of each chapter look delicious and fattening or are those the same thing? A friend tried the cheesecake and it was superb. The author is caustic, observant and obsessed with good food which she describes in what only can be called a "mouthwatering way". After reading this, I got the others she wrote as well and enjoyed them all.
