Product Description

Review

"Luisa Weiss's piquant memoir has charm, heartbreak, family history, and recipes galore." --"Elle" "The new "Julie & Julia"! It's part cookbook and part memoir; you'll finish a chapter and find yourself in the kitchen following the recipe Weiss includes . . . A transcontinental romance about taking risks in life and in the kitchen.""--Marie Claire" "For anyone who's ever moved away from home, only to find that nowhere in the world is quite as special, "My Berlin Kitchen" is a lovely (and delicious-recipe-filled) read." --"Serious Eats" "There are love stories, and then there are "love stories". Luisa Weiss's falls into the latter category, an honest-to-god tale of love lost, found, and happily ended. And, as a bonus, there's food. Indeed, every page is more delightful and delicious than the one before. Brimming with forty recipes borrowed from Weiss's friends and family and from famous chefs like Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver, then stripped down and perfected by Weiss herself, the book is a mix of travelogue, memoir, cookbook, and a touch of fairytale." --"East"" Bay"" Express" "A mouthwatering tribute to Berlin and a love letter to food, romance and following your heart. . . . Weiss vividly evokes the flavors of German, Italian, and American cuisine. . . . The characters around each table come to life as vibrantly as the food, and Weiss adds helpful hints to the recipes that crown each chapter." --"Shelf Awareness" "A heartwarming (and often mouth-watering) memoir, German-born chef and writer Weiss recounts how . . . through hardship and heartbreak, she found solace among saucepans and stews. . . . Foodies and nonfoodies alike will enjoy chapters brimming with colorful cooking tales and savory recipes.""--"Allison Block, "Booklist "(starred review) "A thoughtful, earnestly winning memoir." --"Publishers Weekly" "This charming food memoir will prove enjoyable to anyone who loves Laurie Colwin or M.L.K. Fisher." --"Library Journal" "I --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

If you are a fan of The Wednesday Chef you'll love Luisa's fabulous book. I was moved to tears in several places and the recipes are very good.

I purchased this book as a birthday gift for my daughter (age 35) who had read about it in a book review. She has now read the book and loved it. She told me that it is extremely well written, absorbing, funny and met with her expectations.

Started off very well, got a bit stale in the middle and then slowly picked up but not enough for me.

I very much enjoyed the book, it was very heart warming and for me, quite moving. I love foodie biographies and I miss my home town Berlin and I am very partial to Italian food. I found the story of the author's childhood interesting and the recipes are great. I have tried two of them already and am now an avid follower of the blog. Can't wait to try more of the recipes.
Is is hard for me to write an objective review, the story was literally too close too home. I would love to read further books from the author and I am looking forward to the German edition and hopefully my friends and family will enjoy the book as much as I did. Great book if you love food and/or Berlin.

A vastly enjoyable read about a womans struggle to fit between America and berlin and how she eventually found love and herself thought food . Its a comfortable memoirs , being taken from a blog the chapters are easy to read. Its rather like eat , pray love but with recipes and perfect for a wet afternoon like those cosy cooking mysteries are, or a guilty hour on the food network . There is no chef swearing and so it will prob appeal more to women who enjoy Sex and the city than Kitchen confidential .
