Tender at the Bone

By Ruth Reichl
Recommended by Kelley

This is a touching and funny memoir of the early years of food critic Ruth Reichl.  Her childhood and coming of age were greatly influenced by her mentally ill mother and there, but absent, father; as well as the cultural changes happening in the late 1960’s and 70’s.  The story is interspersed with people that she meets and how their culture and food mold her ideas and views on life.  The book has a great many recipes – some you will recognize and others very exotic – all of which will make you think about getting out the mixing bowl and creating a masterpiece of your own.
