Product description


"Poignant, heartwarming and generously filled with delicious recipes." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"Food had long provided the few happy moments in Martin s life...These moments may not be enough to satiate the appetite of foodie readers who are looking for lush bite-by-bite writing, but there is plenty here to engross memoir lovers." "-Publisher's Weekly"
"Martin peppers this memoir with recipes reflective of her life s circumstances of the moment, from stuffed artichokes to apple pie. Her assured prose endows this narrative of an atypical upbringing with both immediacy and poignancy. " "- Booklist"
"Many readers will relate to the ways that"Life from Scratch"connects food and family." --Shelf Awareness
"Sasha Martin intended to publish what s called a stunt memoir....Thankfully, her memoir, "Life From Scratch"is not that book. It has more in common with"The Glass Castle"than it does with"300 Sandwiches: A Multilayered Love Story . . . with Recipes, "though it does include recipes." --"Washington Post"
"While a taste of food from around the world would have been delicious enough, the memoir that Martin ultimately wrote is far more satisfying." "--Tulsa Kids"
"Sasha Martin s beautiful memoir-cum-cookbook... makes for ideal summer escapism. Martin s memoir will find resonance in anyone who s found that the art of cooking can be as much an emotional experience as a sensory one.""
