I LOVE this book. The only reason why I'm giving it away is because it's collecting dust on my shelf and isn't getting the attention it deserves. A collection of funny, touching, memorable childhood stories from former food critic of the New York Times. Life's challenges and gastronomic pleasures abound in this lovely memoir from Ruth Reichl.

I found this book touching-- even the recipes tell their own stories.

Thank you so much for the RABCK. It looks like a great book and about my favourite subject - food. I really appreciate the book. Thanks

Ruth Reichl, food critic and a former editor of Gourmet magazine, has written about her early years in this autobiography. Her mother had a manic depressive mental disorder and was a horrendous cook even to the point of potentially inadvertently poisoning people. Ruth learned early on a joy and passion for food.

From her boarding school days to her times at Berkeley she tells of her passion for food. She collects unforgettable characters as well as fabulous recipes. Trying to balance a dysfunctional family her life is anything but boring. She has lived in a commune, collectively managed a restaurant, given cooking classes and toured in the wine country of France.

She writes about her mother's mental disorder and her own anxiety attacks. And to top it all off there are a number of delicious sounding recipes. YUM!

This book arrived in today's mail. I heard Reichl speak last year at the Miami Festival of the Book and enjoyed her very much -- I'm planning on enjoying this book as well.

I received this one yesterday - as the winner of the Spring Seepstakes. I am looking forward to reading this one. I read her other book Garlic and Sapphires and laughed out loud. I am a New Yorker and I am sure I will enjoy this one also.
