Review

"What a world Romney Steele has given us in "My Nepenthe"! This personal tale is as tender and bright as a bite of Nepenthe Cheese Pie and will transport me--and you--to Big Sur and the days and nights of this magical place. "My Nepenthe" serves a big, gorgeous slice of American culture that I loved visiting through words and memory."
--Deborah Madison, author of "What We Eat When We Eat Alone" and "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone "
(Deborah Madison)"

"A very special book about a very special place." --Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food

"Romney Steele grew up in the lively bohemian milieu of Nepenthe on the Big Sur coast and knows all the stories worth telling. In My Nepenthe, an intimate, richly illustrated memoir with recipes culled from the restaurant's 60 years, she writes marvelously about her "crazy stew of a family" and especially her beloved grandmother, whose kindness and hospitality were legendary.
--Caroline Bates, contributing editor, Gourmet magazine
