Review

"Candace Walsh's luscious prose brings this memoir vividly to life. She weaves the comfort of food throughout her brave and ultimately uplifting quest to find her witty wonderful self. And we readers are nourished by coming along on Walsh's journey. Bon appetit." --Cheryl Alters Jamison, four-time James Beard Award-winning author of "Smoke & Spice, Tasting New Mexico, The Border Cookbook, " and "The Big Book of Outdoor Cooking & Entertaining"

"Funny, moving, and as irresistible as chocolate cake, Candace Walsh's delicious memoir isn't just a coming-of-age of a remarkable woman by way of the kitchen pantry, but a smart, gorgeously written exploration of the foods--and the people--who really nourish us." --Caroline Leavitt, author of the "New York Times" bestseller, "Pictures of You"

"Like "Jane Eyre" and "Heartburn, Licking the Spoon" is a book you won't be able to put down and a story you won't soon forget." --Theo Pauline Nestor, author of "How to Sleep Alone in a King-Sized Bed"

"Engaging in its narrative and as satisfying as the recipes for Ropa Vieja and Chicken Fricassee included, this is truly a memoir from the heart." --Curve Magazine

"The book's brightest points serve as testaments to personal reinvention and healing...when Walsh writes with pride and joy of the day she brought her shiny, new KitchenAid home and recalls tenderly the comfort found in a simple chicken fricassee, those moments shimmer like oil in a hot pan." --Kirkus Reviews



"In the spirit of Nora Ephron's "Heartburn" and Laurie Colwin's "Home Cooking", Candace Walsh uses the story of her passionate relationship to food to frame a powerful and honest account of her life." --Gretchen Rubin, author of the "New York Times" bestseller "The Happiness Project"
