Tender at the Bone Growing Up at the TableRst soufflé to those at her politically correct table in Berkeley who championed the organic food revolution in the 1970s Spiced with Reichl's infectious humor and sprinkled with her favorite recipes Tender at the Bone is a witty and compelling chronicle of a culinary sensualist's coming of a I’m not normally a big fan of books about food They always leave me cursing my limited culinary abilities and hungry for foods that are far outside of my price range not to mention excluded by various personal dietary choices I likely never would have picked up anything by Ruth Reichl had I not found myself uncharacteristically bookless while lounging in the park this past weekend and in need of diversion Fortunately a friend had a copy of this deep in the bottom of her bag and I was able to while away an afternoon in my preferred manner A book that is part biography part paean to the glory of the kitchen and part cookbook Tender At The Bone is one of the uickest reads I’ve had all year Ruth Reichl is editor of Gourmet magazine and her long years in the magazine industry are evident in her writing style Chapters are short and to the point no frippery for her and punctuated by a recipe of whatever delicious creation she has been reminiscing about These vignettes follow Ruth and her lifelong relationship with food from her mother’s inability to tell when food has spoiled to her first gig waitressing to her membership in a Berkeley restaurant collective to a delicious and educational trip through French wine country Initially I was put off by the early scenes of her learning to cook from her family’s servants scenarios of privilege such as these always tend to fan the flames of my class resentment but I can get over the fact that trite though they are this is life as this woman has experienced it On the whole the story is better off when Ruth allows herself to be overcome with the delight she feels in food several descriptions had me salivating like some Pavlovian pooch and wishing I knew people who could cook these fantastic confections for me Like I said it is a uick read that won’t stick with you long though the recipes may but enjoyable in a pinch I doubt I’ll rush out and buy the rest of her books but should one fall into my hands on a plane ride or another sunny day I wouldn’t complain
