September ’10 Book List
Busy month! Only read one book in September: Tender at the Bone, by Ruth Reichl. Have always been a fan of Ruth Reichl’s memoirs. After acting as the NY Times food critic and later, the Editor-In-Chief of Gourmet, Reichl has had an interesting life. And, as part of her previous job descriptions, the woman can write about food. Tender at the Bone tells the story of her youth and early career. After reading her three memoirs in reverse order, we’d have to say that this was our least favorite…but it is still very good. It’s just a little more interesting to read about her taking away Le Cirque’s fifth star than her grandmother’s cooked catfish. But if you like food and like to cook, you will enjoy.
