Crying in H Mart

A Memoir

By Michelle Zauner
Narrated by: Michelle Zauner
Length: 7 hours 22 minutes

If you enjoyed Minor Feelings, then you’ll love Crying in H Mart.

“This memoir is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of grief as well as a tender look at the complex relationship between a mother and daughter bridging generational and cultural gaps through the comforting creation of food. This book had me simultaneously sobbing and starving. A perfect read.”

Taste

My Life Through Food

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

Taste

“Stanley Tucci brings the listener on a sumptuous and mouth-watering tour through his life, guided by his tastebuds and family traditions. As a reader from an Italian American family, many of Tucci's stories were a mirror to my own childhood and extended family, making this audiobook a complete joy. Tucci's epic travels, movie adventures, and bonds with loved ones are all framed by food. Recipes are peppered throughout the book, accompanying memories as a way to relive and process prized and pivotal moments. I'm not remotely a good cook, but I thoroughly loved listening to Tucci divvy out his cooking knowledge. This is not to be missed.”

World Travel

An Irreverent Guide

By Anthony Bourdain & Laurie Woolever
Narrated by: Laurie Woolever, Shep Gordon, Christopher Bourdain, Jen Agg, Matt Walsh, Bill Buford, Claude Tayag, Nari Kye, Vidya Balachander & Steve Albini
Length: 12 hours 11 minutes

World Travel

“Like the cowriter Laurie Woolever, I was initially a little skeptical that the world needed this travel guide, but now that I've sampled it I'm so grateful to have a little bit more of Bourdain in the world. While there is some practical advice here (hotel and restaurant suggestions), what I really love is hearing Bourdain's trademark wry humor and utter irreverence. Take a whirlwind tour around the world from Argentina to Vietnam and dozens of countries in between. ”

From Scratch

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home

By Tembi Locke
Narrated by: Tembi Locke
Length: 10 hours 17 minutes

From Scratch

“I just finished wiping away my last tear as I close the curtain on From Scratch, a brilliant, compelling memoir. Tembi Locke lost her larger-than-life Italian chef husband at an early age to cancer. The book is a love letter to him as well as to enchanting Sicily and its aromatic, tantalizing food. But more than anything, it is the most memorable and thoughtful gift that her daughter will ever receive. I highly recommend the audio version which is read by the author. From Scratch is one of the best memoirs that I have ever read and one of my top five best books that I read this Summer.”

I relate to his story, and anyone who’s ever tried to build something from nothing will feel like Chang is speaking directly to them. I loved this book.”
