Taste

My Life Through Food

By Stanley Tucci
Narrated by: Stanley Tucci
Length: 6 hours 50 minutes

If you enjoyed Julie and Julia - Abridged, then you’ll love Taste.

“I loved Tucci's wry writing and very unique take on food! This is a book you can gift just about everyone because it includes so many recipes as well as stories from Tucci's life and career. Though in proportion to food, the book involves very little Hollywood gossip Tucci does drop in jokes and asides about his famous friends and costars that satisfy the nosy nellies. Though I'm sure the physical edition of this book is great for it's recipes, if you want a truly immersive and hilarious experience, I highly recommend you download the audio! Tucci's dry humor breathes so much more sass and life into his words (and his casual name drops), it is not to be missed.”

My Gourmet Memoir

By Ruth Reichl

Save Me the Plums

“In her new memoir, trendsetting food writer and editor Ruth Reichl writes lovingly of the full-blast creativity of her 10 years as editor-in-chief of Gourmet. By book’s end, you’ll miss the storied and groundbreaking magazine, but you’ll be grateful she shared the tale of how its outstanding roster of writers, photographers, designers, and cooks transformed how we look at food. Reichl takes readers behind the scenes as chefs became rock stars, as writers like David Foster Wallace reshaped food writing, and as she fought to save the magazine she adored. A beloved writer with an enviable career, Reichl reminds us that although things may change, simple, honest pleasures — like a perfect plum — endure and make life rich.”

“Unapologetically honest and raw, "Eat a Peach" is David Chang's no holds barred account of his rise to fame in the culinary world. David writes candidly about his complicated upbringing, mental illness, crippling anxiety and self doubt, and major anger management issues as he dishes up subversive, accessible food to the masses.  I appreciated how Chang's praise of his peers, mentors and aspiring chefs was peppered throughout the book. "Eat A Peach" doesn't shy away from anything, including Chang's fight against racism and his answer to the #meetoo movement.  If you are a foodie or enjoy a look behind the scenes of a business, you'll devour this memoir!The audio narrated by David Chang is excellent!”

Finding Freedom

A Cook's Story; Remaking a Life from Scratch

By Erin French
Narrated by: Erin French
Length: 9 hours 35 minutes

If you enjoyed Know My Name, then you’ll love Finding Freedom.

“Erin French's memoir is so impressive, highly engrossing, and also so tough to read. She brings us through her life, all the highest peaks and deepest valleys and emphasizes the tremendous effort she has made to come back from each low point. I often listened to French's narration with bated breath, shocked at how much she has overcome in such a relatively short period of time. French's personal story also made me think about our country as a whole and how bad it is at mental health and believing women. It just deeply affronted me that a story like French's is even possible in the 21st century; we have so far to go. Though moments of this book are tough, French's resilience is truly inspiring. You can't help cry for her when things go wrong and root for her when she fights her way back. This memoir, like many that are narrated by their own authors, is in its best form with the audiobook edition. French's voice is raw and truthful and makes you feel this story down to your bones. I highly recommend this to everyone. A story of resilience, Finding Freedom leaves you with much needed hope and light despite it's occasional darkness and an underdog to root for through it all.”

The Making of a Counterculture Cook

By Alice Waters
Narrated by: Alice Waters
Length: 8 hours 58 minutes

Coming to My Senses

“No one has transformed the way Americans think about food—its place in our individual and collective lives, and as a conveyer of our values—than Alice Waters. The founder of iconic Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California, and the driving force behind the Edible Schoolyard program that has introduced tens of thousands of schoolchildren across America to the art of growing and cooking food, Waters has now written her long-awaited memoir. In Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook she describes her roots in New Jersey, her coming of age during the political tumult of the 1960s, and her ongoing crusade to make locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, and “slow food” the mainstays of a new American cuisine. Throw in a few spicy love affairs, her passion for books, and a life spent intersecting with presidents and movie moguls, and you’ve got a book that is a satisfying and delicious full-course meal.”
