Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table by Ruth Reichl

Food is everywhere. We aren't just eating it or seeing it advertised; we are cooking it, watching shows (whole networks) about it, and especially reading about it. America is growing a strong culture of foodies.

With that interest, comes the food memoir.

Tender at the Bone is the quintessential food memoir. Written by Ruth Reichl (the editor-in-chief of the sadly discontinued Gourmet Magazine), this hilarious and heartwarming read will have you sauteing inbetween chapters. Her life is not only filled with food; she retells living with a manic depressive mother, trying out a commune in Berkeley, and wooing friends with delicious dishes.

Her favorite recipes are included, hopefully to become some of yours too!
