My Kitchen Wars Author:Betty Fussell My Kitchen Wars is a war story-but the warrior is a woman, the battleground is the kitchen, and the weapons are the batterie de cuisine with which Betty Fussell evokes her era's domestic battles. As much about hunger-emotional, sexual, intellectual-as it is about food, this fierce and funny memoir takes no prisoners.
I didn't much like this book. I thought it was going to be very humorous, but it wasn't. I found it a bit pretentious and a little sad as well. I regularly don't read this genre, so others will probably like it.
