Year 8, Book 47

47. Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

One of my book clubs is currently doing a theme of books based on food. I saw Relish reviewed on NPR and thought it sounded perfect. It’s a graphic novel of essays about the author’s experiences growing up with two foodie parents including a mother who is a professional cook and the way it has influenced the way she relates to food. The stories are both lovely and humorous and the graphic novel format adds to them. The essays are interspersed with recipes, which all looked delicious as well as not that difficult to make. I plan on trying a number of them out for our book club meeting. I really liked this book a lot and look forward to discussing it with my book club. I give it a 9 out of 10.
