Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table
Allen & Unwin, 2001 - 282 páginas
"Like a hearing child born to deaf parents, I was shaped by my mother's handicap, discovering that food could be a way of making sense of the world" ... Ruth Reichl is the chief editor at Gourmet Magazine and recognised as one of the world's leading food writers. This is her memoir of a life determined, enhanced and defined by a passion for food, unforgettable people and the love of tales well told. From her notorious food-poisoning mother (otherwise known as the Queen of Mould) to the gourmand Monsieur du Croix who served Reichl her first souffle to the Berkeley restaurant of the seventies where every worker was a manager and every manager had an opinion, Reichl's story is heart-wrenching and funny.
