Kern County Library Staff Suggests...: Memoirs with Recipes

Monday, May 3, 2010

Memoirs with Recipes

If I Can Cook, You Know God Can by Ntozake Shange - Rich in personal memoir and history reflection, with a dash of philosophy, acclaimed artist Ntozake Shange brings together a collection of recipes shared by all members of the African Diaspora.

The Language of Baklava: A Memoir by Diana Abu-Jaber - Cooking is the language of love, these recipes illuminate the two cultures of Diana's childhood–American and Jordanian. We are invited to sit down at the table with Diana’s family, sharing unforgettable meals that turn out to be as much about "grace, difference, faith, love" as they are about food.

Lunch in Paris: A Love Story with Recipes by Elizabeth Bard - Confounded but never defeated by French culture the author adapts, reluctantly or triumphantly, to the culture of her French husband. The recipes and romance are almost secondary to the other story, the true meaning of success, happiness, and home.

Out of the Frying Pan: A Chef’s Memoir of Hot Kitchens, Single Motherhood, and the Family Meal by Gillian Clark - Gillian Clark rose from a minimum wage carrot chopper to top chef and her own restaurant. But managing a kitchen also taught her about parenting. With a wealth of experience and wisdom, and a healthy dash of humor, Gillian now shares her life’s recipes, from the solutions she cooked up for parenting challenges to her favorite culinary creations.
