The first in the three-part series of Reichl's story of being the NY Times Food Editor. Fantastic, funny, and delicious.
Bestselling author Ruth Reichl embarks on a clear-eyed, openhearted investigation of her mother's life, piecing together the journey of a woman she comes to realize she never really knew. Looking to her mother's letters and diaries, Reichl confronts the painful transition her mother made from a hopeful young woman to an increasingly unhappy older one and realizes the tremendous sacrifices she made to make sure her daughter's life would not be as disappointing as her own.
I have Vol. I and II, the Menu Cookbook and the Viennese Cookbook. Got them years and years ago and still love them. Where else will you find a recipe that begins with, "Have a small hog's head cut in half and the eyes and brain removed." (Scrapple recipe--look it up)
