Blood, Bones and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton

What a surprisingly great read! I expected the usual chef success story, but was pleasantly surprised to find a tender memoir. This book was not so much a tale of how-I-got-where-I-am today, but a poignant coming of age true story of a woman surviving in the world. You will be surprised!

Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses
