I recently read this most enjoyable book. It is a collection of the Food Diary columns Hesser wrote between 2000-2002 for the The New York Times Magazine - short personal reminiscences with accompanying recipes. I think it counts as a memoir. She'll tell you, for example about meeting her boyfriend's parents, and the dinner his mother cooked for them, and then give the recipes at the end of each chapter, telling you which cookbook it came from and how it was adapted. She writes wonderfully - I'm neither a cook nor a foodie, but I'm loving her story telling. And the recipes sound so good that I might have to try some of them! I found this to be a winning combination by an author to watch

I like to cook and I like to eat. And I certainly like a good romance. But this book fell short of all of that for me. I may try a few of the recipes but I was ultimately put off by her food snobbery.

Well, the story was pretty blase', boring mostly. Too many of these cooking memoirs out there, and this one says less than most. HOWEVER, some of the recipes are really great, and it is worth a credit just for those.

Very enjoyable--part journal, part cookbook.

I had a hard time getting into the story and the recipes are all frou frou. Not real food I might cook at home.

Eh, wasn't great. The stories are funny....if you are really into food. The recipes were nice to read, but I could never imagine myself making any of them...too complicated!

Recipes are excellent, the story line is mediocre.
