NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Miami Herald - Newsday - The Huffington Post - Financial Times - GQ - Slate - Men's Journal - Washington Examiner - Publishers Weekly - Kirkus Reviews - National Post - The Toronto Star - BookPage - Bookreporter

Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Blood, Bones & Butter follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with an oily 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; Hamilton's own kitchen at Prune, with its many unexpected challenges; and the kitchen of her Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamilton's idyllic past and her own future family--the result of a prickly marriage that nonetheless yields lasting dividends. By turns epic and intimate, Gabrielle Hamilton's story is told with uncommon honesty, grit, humor, and passion.

Review:

"Dazzling . . . brilliantly written . . . [Hamilton] is as evocative writing about people and places as she is at writing about cooking."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Rhapsodic, profane, wonderful . . . A fabulously talented writer-cook, Gabrielle Hamilton is also a contrarian one, and you never know quite what will come next."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Hamilton's writing about food is so vivid it could make you half-crazed with hunger, leaving you in front of the open fridge with a cold chicken leg in one hand and the book in the other."--The Boston Globe

"Luminous . . . [Readers will] marvel at Hamilton's masterly facility with language."--The Washington Post

"The author/chef is an original--tough, tender, gritty, dreamy. . . . She has written Blood, Bones & Butter with her whole, generous heart."--The Miami Herald

"Magnificent. Simply the best memoir by a chef ever. Ever."--Anthony Bourdain

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.
