Insatiable: Tales from a Life of Delicious Excess Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With her passion for fine food and, above all, her appetite for love and life, Gael Greene traces her rise from a Velveeta cocoon in the Midwest to powerful critic of New York magazine. Love and food, foreplay and fork play, haute cuisine and social history--all become inextricably linked as the author lifts the lid on her most provocative subject yet--herself. Along the way there are tales of her saucy erotic adventures and intimate portraits of the culinary icons of our time--Julia Child, Andr Soltner, James Beard, among others--and revealing dissections of New York's legendary in spots, including Elaine's, Le Bernardin, Le Cirque, Odeon, and Balthazar.

Synopsis:

An acclaimed restaurant critic dishes up a delectable memoir--complete with her favorite recipes--from a lifelong love affair with food, men, and wine. Two 8-page full-color inserts.
