Let Us Eat Cake: Adventures in Food and Friendship Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A charming memoir and cookbook that celebrates the connections women make through cooking and food

Every woman has poignant food memories: The first time she helped her mother bake a cake, or helped her grandmother make blintzes, tortillas, or Southern fried chicken. And how about the times she and her girlfriends baked chocolate-chip cookies, or, later, prepared elaborate dinners to impress potential husbands? Let Us Eat Cake celebrates these connections.

As a young girl, Sharon Boorstin helped her mother make tuna casseroles; on a college trip to Europe, she and her girlfriends compared men and restaurants with equal zest; after she became a food writer, Boorstin bonded with women in the food world, including Barbara Lazaroff (Mrs. Wolfgang) Puck and Julia Child. Today, after decades of food and cooking, Boorstin and the women in her life cook together for the sheer pleasure of it, and they have come to understand what truly makes for female friendships.

With dozens of delicious recipes and vintage photos, this moving book will inspire readers to remember and cherish their own experiences with food and friends.

Review:

"[A] charming homage to women's camaraderie....[There are] treasures to be found in this likeable baby boomer memoir." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Bonappetit to readers." Kirkus Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Boorstin uses food as the central motif for this distinctly sweet-toned memoir.
