19) Relish: My Life in the Kitchen -- Lucy Knisley

  • November 13, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Marie's House

Our first graphic novel for the group! Here's the scoop:

"Lucy Knisley loves food. The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, this talented young cartoonist comes by her obsession honestly. In her forthright, thoughtful, and funny memoir, Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life. Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe—many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy's original inventions.

A welcome read for anyone who ever felt more passion for a sandwich than is strictly speaking proper, Relish is a graphic novel for our time: it invites the reader to celebrate food as a connection to our bodies and a connection to the earth, rather than an enemy, a compulsion, or a consumer product."

    Heads up! Not a good idea to kindle this. It really sucks since you have no choice with the orientation. Unless I'm missing something...
