Blood bones and butter book review
Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle HamiltonApril 4, Food memoirs have become rather predictable. Gabrielle Hamilton , owner and chef of Prune in New York City , has written a food memoir that defies this kind of cuteness. Instead Blood, Bones and Butter delivers the story of a life shaped by food with the intensity of a blast of hot air from a degree F. Hamilton does share family memories centered on food, but these simmer with an underlying fury. There is a slow realization that food is central to her life, but this comes almost as an afterthought.

Rate this book. Gabrielle Hamilton's story is told with uncommon honesty, grit, humor, and passion. By turns epic and intimate, it marks the debut of a tremendous literary talent. There would be no 'conceptual' or 'intellectual' food, just the salty, sweet, starchy, brothy, crispy things that one craves when one is actually hungry. In ecstatic farewell to my years of corporate catering, we would never serve anything but a martini in a martini glass.
Excellent review and reflections? Our town shared a border so closely with New Jersey that we could and did walk back and forth between the two states several times in a day by crossing the Delaware River. Jun 12, so she went.
The Kindle edition was superb for its ability to let me insta-Google the obscure ingredients she mentions. I found nothing for her to be proud of let alone crow about as she I thought this was a memoir I would really enjoy. Looking forward to it? Whine, he never opens .
