9780099498339: Blood, Bones and Butter: The inadvertent education of a reluctant chef

Blood, Bones & Butter follows the chef Gabrielle Hamilton's extraordinary journey through the places she has inhabited over the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with wooden spoon in hand; the kitchens of France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and learned the essence of hospitality; and the kitchen of her beloved Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamilton's idyllic past and her own future family.

Unflinchingly honest, moving, beautifully crafted and funny, this is a rollicking, passionate story of food, purpose and family.

Review:

"Magnificent... Blood, Bones & Butter is the work of an uncompromising chef and a prodigiously talented writer. I am choked with envy" (Anthony Bourdain)

"My favourite book of the past few years, a thrilling and visceral personal memoir" ( Financial Times)

"A rhapsodic, profane, wonderful, imperfect memoir... every bit as rich and satisfying as the marrow bones the author roasts at Prune" ( Wall Street Journal)

"The food memoir of the year" ( Guardian)

"Evocative... Dazzling... Beautifully written" ( New York Times)

Book Description:

A sharply crafted and unflinchingly honest memoir ('simply the best memoir by a chef ever. Ever.' Anthony Bourdain) about the search for meaning and purpose from one of America's most recognized chefs and up-and-coming literary talents.
