9780099435952: Comfort Me With Apples: Love, Adventure and a Passion for Cooking: A Journey Through Life, Love and Truffles

In this delightful sequel to her bestseller Tender at the Bone, the beloved food writer Ruth Reichl returns with more tales full of love, life, humour and marvellous meals. Ruth Reichl's pursuit of good food and good company leads her to New York and China, France and Los Angeles. She cooks and dines with world-famous chefs and the three star aristocracy of French cuisine, and her accounts of these meetings range from the madcap to the sublime. Reichl lovingly recreates all her marvellous meals in such succulent detail that readers will yearn from truffles in Provence and shrimp in Beijing. Throughout it all, Reichl is unafraid, even eager, to poke holes in the pretensions of food critics, making each and every course a hilarious and instructive occasion for novices and experts alike. She shares some of her first recipes so readers can make the Dry-Fried Shrimp she first tasted in China, or the Dacquoise served at the end of a magical visit to a Paris bistro. Reichl also shares the intimacies of her personal life in a style so honest and warm that readers will feel they are enjoying a cosy dining-table conversation with a friend. In Comfort Me With Apples, Reichl again demonstrates her inimitable ability to combine food writing, humour and memoir into an art form.

Book Description:

'A personal memoir, hilarious and painful in turns-A pleasure from start to finish' Guardian

From the Back Cover:

In this original and utterly engaging memoir, food writer Ruth Reichl, author of the acclaimed Tender at the Bone, dishes up a celebration of love, life, humour and the pleasures of the table.

Ruth Reichl's pursuit of good food and good company takes her from New York to China and from France to Los Angeles. Along the way she cooks and dines with world-famous chefs and is initiated into the arcane mysteries of French haute cuisine, recreating these unforgettable encounters so vividly that readers can almost taste the earthy truffles of Provence and the tang of Chinese dry-fried shrimp.

Whether poking holes in the pretensions of food critics, chronicling the sad, sweet parting from her first husband, the death of her beloved father or the joy of falling in love, Ruth Reichl tells her story with warm humour and an irrepressible sense of the absurd.
