Join the author through a memoir to be savoured
There is something really magical about food drawings; perhaps the colours and lines take you way back to when you were a little sprout chewing on plastic or wax fruit from your mother's decorative bowl, or maybe your senses become heightened by imagining the texture, taste and smells of a drawing, if we are honest with ourselves; we all have at some point drooled at food in cartoons, kids books and in this case graphic novels.
New York best-selling author Lucy Knisley; the daughter of a chef and a gourmet who's upbringing revolves inevitably around food, shares with you "Relish" a small recollection of food memoirs.The beautiful and simple illustrations will embrace you tightly as you savour the pages of Lucy's journey through food, life and the intricacies they both present.
"Relish-my life in the kitchen" presents a series of short anecdotes which may or may not connect with your personal experience; however, what we can all relate to is the smells,the textures and honest satisfaction we all get from biting, chewing, sharing and nourishing our bodies and spirits, Knisley believes in the power of food to heal the soul, the soothing effect it has on us to bring back a memory, person or place.
Just as the title suggests, this short graphic novel is a total pleasure, the drawing style accompanied by short funny stories will make you look back into your own life and reminisce, appreciate and perhaps recreate certain foods in an attempt to relive a relished moment... did I mention the book also has recipes!
