I’m a picky eater vegetarian who doesn’t like to cook, and yet I LOVED this book by an omnivorous chef’s daughter foodie. It transcends dietary preferences! It’s the story of Knisley growing up with food, and how it’s interwoven into her relationships, work, and life – intermixed with illustrated recipes for some of the dishes she describes.
Knisley is a wonderful cartoonist, and a thoughtful storyteller. Her encounter with a Richard Sera sculpture while working as catering staff at a museum party has particularly stuck with me, as an intersection in her life between food and art. If you’re at all interested in food, storytelling, autobiography, or books about families, please do check this one out.
