For better or for worse, almost all of us grow up at the table. It is in this setting that Ruth Reichl's brilliantly written memoir takes its form. For, at a very early age, Reichl discovered that food could be a way of making sense of the world...if you watched people as they ate, you could find out who they are. Tender at the Bone is the story of a life determined, enhanced, and defined in equal measure by unforgettable people, the love of tales well-told, and a passion for food. In other words, the stuff of the best literature. The journey begins with Reichl's mother, the notorious food-poisoner known forevermore as the Queen of Mold, and moves on to the fabled Mrs. Peavey, one-time Baltimore socialite millionairess, and, for a brief poignant moment, retained as the Reichls' maid. Then we are introduced to Monsieur du Croix, the gourmand, who so understood and stood somewhat in awe of this prodigious child at his dinner table that when he introduced Ruth to the souffle, he could only exclaim, What a pleasure to watch a child eat her child eat her first souffle Then, fast forward to the politically correct table set in Berkeley in the 1970s, and the food revolution that Ruth watched and participated in as organic became the norm. But this sampling doesn't do this character-rich work justice. And, after all, this is just a taste. Tender at the Bone is a remembrance of Ruth Reichl's childhood into young adulthood, redolent with the atmosphere, good humor, and angst of a sensualist coming of age.… (plus d'informations)

One of my top 10 all time favourite books. A friend has put it on her "want to read" list so I think I'll reread. You think it is just a memoir but it is truly funny. ( )

I read Reichl's [book:Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir|41644326] and loved it. This early childhood memoir is structured around her memories of food. I don't really go for this genre often, but some of the descriptions of place and time were wonderfully detailed. The story hung together and left me wanting to hear more. The recipes didn't invite me in, but again, not my genre. I prefer reading about the finished dishes as they are served and enjoyed. She included all of that and more. ( )

Not my normal read. Interesting life, so far. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, although I felt like it petered out a bit at the end - I didn't really feel like the story ended when the book did. But maybe I just didn't want the book to end.

Either way, it was marvelous - a highly entertaining read, and a fast one if you don't feel the need to actually read the recipes she inserts into every chapter.
