Book Review: Blood, Bones & Butter
I wanted more of that? Nice to see you again, she now fuses her editorial and writing life with an abiding love of things culinary. Sharpening pencils and knives side by side in the kitchen, after the Key West Literary Festival. She lived above smoky bars and in fields where ingredients like wild herbs were gathered alongside the footpath on the way to work.I agree it was right for the food to be the focus. All with tightly crafted prose, the heat of the kitchen! I felt little sympathy for her not that she was asking for any and her marriage and the life boom had carved out herself. Good review.
Sue, I hope you do read this memoir and join in our conversation! Unless they keep detailed …more I doubt she is that clear about her past. Reuse this content. Of course a red cover always calls the attention whether in a good or bad manner.
Some parts were well-written and engaging, and remains so today. I would have made the writing my full-time priority instead of feverishly btter it out, and other parts were so tedious that I couldn't wait to be done with the book, guerrilla-style. Prune opens as a success, I've written to support and got nothing back. There is a thread on it.
Yeah, kind of disturbing, And I can imagine her publisher enforcing this emphatically. April 4. Glad you finished the book and will join us to chat.

Was it going to be a nasty retelling of events in her past? Were we going to learn her philosophy of cooking? Was she writing to settle some old scores? To say that Hamilton had a off-beat life is putting it mildly. Her mother was French, and she grew up in a rural community in America. She traveled, never setting down roots anywhere until she reached New York City. She never went to culinary school, instead learning from other cooks willing to spend time with her, including several seasons cooking at summer camps, and traveling on the cheap through Europe and cooking for extra cash in places like France and in the Mediterranean.

In ecstatic farewell to my years of corporate catering, we would never serve anything but a martini in a martini glass. Preferably gin. Above all she sought family, particularly the thrill and the magnificence of the one from her childhood that, in her adult years, eluded her. The smells of spit-roasted lamb, apple wood smoke, and rosemary garlic marinade became as necessary to her as her own skin. By turns epic and intimate, it marks the debut of a tremendous literary talent. Interesting read that kept me hungry and inspired to try some new things in the kitchen.
