    By the time I was a quarter through this book I was freaking out bet that is a Berkley term I was telling myself, Don t judge Stop judging Take a deep cleansing breath, another It only helped so much I was definitely judging By the time Ruth and Doug have their honest conversation I was furious I had to keep telling myself, This is Ruth s life not yours, Doug is not your husband so you don t have to kill him I mean I was judging Ruth too, but man another Be...

    Ruth Reichl, food critic and former editor of Gourmet magazine, is a fluid and engaging writer Her stories about the early days of California Cuisine were interesting, as were the anecdotes involving people like Wolfgang Puck, Alice Waters, and the Aidells sausage guy before they became household names But too much of the book is about her personal life, which at this phase involved living in a commune in Berkeley and pursuing several extra ...

    I liked the real foodie parts of this book, but it pretty quickly devolved into the sort of memoir where I felt somewhat aghast for Ruth s friends, family, former and current spouses, and lovers Yikes TMI It would have comforted me if she had stuck an apple in her mouth rather than telling me quite so much about her infidelities SPOILERS I don t know why this is so she just seemed so stupidly self destructive at some points and yet constantly fell forward into better and better jobs I reall I liked the real foodie parts of this book, but it pretty quickly devolved into the sort of memoir whe...

    I would be embarrassed to read this in a public place, but it s a mindless read and I have a hard time resisting descriptions of food This is a good break up book so far all the romantic relationships Reichl describes crumble, and her writing is too cheesy for me to feel like she s a real person see Made From Scratch, the Sandra Lee memoirs , so it s pleasantly cathartic Plus recipes I shouldn t speak too soon, though Maybe she ll meet some amazing guy she s still with in an inspirationa I would be embarrassed to read this in a public place, but it s a mindless read and I have ...
