Advance praise for "My Kitchen Year"

Ruth is one of our greatest storytellers today, which you will feel from the moment you open this book and begin to read: No one writes as warmly and engagingly about the all-important intersection of food, life, love, and loss. This book is a lyrical and deeply intimate journey told through recipes, as only Ruth can do. Alice Waters

Ruth is one of our greatest storytellers today, which you will feel from the moment you open this book and begin to read: No one writes as warmly and engagingly about the all-important intersection of food, life, love, and loss. This book is a lyrical and deeply intimate journey told through recipes, as only Ruth can do. Alice Waters
What will send this book to the top of bestseller lists is the lovely way Reichl describes how dishes come together, like the Greek chicken soup with lemon and egg known as avgolemono, and her talent for assembling a collection of recipes her legions of former "Gourmet" fans will want to make themselves. "The Washington Post"
""
The recipes make for lovely reading, full of Reichl s elemental wisdom. . . . In the best way possible, "My Kitchen Year" is cozy, the reading equivalent of curling up next to a fire with a glass of red wine and perhaps the scent of bread in the oven wafting over. "Vogue"
""
If anyone can convince us that a dessert, plus two more fabulous dishes, can turn a crummy day around, it s culinary writer Ruth Reichl, who knows firsthand just how powerful food can be. "O: The Oprah Magazine"
""
The voice is pure Reichl in a way that makes the reader yearn for a house in the country with a pantry full of staples. . . . And as she finds solace through cooking, we find comfort too. "Eater "(Fall 2015 s Best Cookbooks)
The dishes are clearly fun and uplifting for Reichl, and the unexpected shift from culinary guru to happy home cook chases her blues away. Reichl reminds readers that getting lost in a recipe can be excellent therapy. "Publishers Weekly "(starred review)"
