I found this book very intriguing and interesting. If you have any history of working in a kitchen, you’d love this book. This book explores the life and tribulations of restaurant (Prune) owner, Gabrielle Hamilton, from an early childhood in a very rustic home, through a confusing adolescence, and a rough adulthood, to finally finding her place, her home. The book shows the background, the exhaustion, the work, the satisfaction, and the life of someone who has given themselves as a cook, a mother, and, ultimately, a lover of food. It’s a must read.
