A universally acclaimed debut memoir from a celebrity chef with a MFA in creative writing. Hamilton traces her trajectory from hippyish Pennsylvania in the 70's, through the rock n roll urban cowboy 80's in New York, with time spent in Europe in basic country kitchens and in the events catering trade before she opened her restaurant, Prune, in New York. While some of the writing is food porn at its best, you don't have to be a food enthusiast to enjoy her descriptions of the shattered family that she comes from and the new one she creates. Thoroughly enjoyable and equally well written.
