Delicious

Ruth Reichl has written an enjoyable story.

fun and enjoyable

Overall, this was a fun and enjoyable book to read. The aspect I most enjoyed was the letters between James Beard and the girl. The least enjoyable was the long drawn-out reveal of the reason Billie avoids the kitchen - aspects of the process were overwrought. Good food writing, too. I want to experience Sal's store! (actually, what I really want to experience is the chocolate store... :^)

Enjoyable Read

Interesting characters, good plot, definitely worth reading.

Delicious!

This book was wonderful from beginning to end! Bravo, Ruth!

Food for thought

As a fan of Ruth Reichl's memoirs, I enjoyed this novel. It's a great beach read. Fun plot, though predictable at times.

Oh, boy is this book ever good.

If you love food and the science of cooking, this book will grab you from the first page.
