At an early age, Ruth 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 were. Her deliciously crafted memoir,Tender at the Bone, is the story of a life determined, enhanced, and defined in equal measure by a passion for food, unforgettable people, and the love of tales well told.Beginning with Reichls mother, the notorious food-poisoner known as the Queen of Mold, Reichl introduces us to the fascinating characters who shaped her world and her tastes, from the gourmand Monsieur du Croix, who served Reichl her first souffl, to those at her politically correct table in Berkeley who championed the organic food revolution in the 1970s.Spiced with Reichls infectious humor and sprinkled with her favorite recipes,Tender at the Boneis a witty and compelling chronicle of a culinary sensualists coming-of-age.
