Comfort Me with Apples More Adventures at the TableA restaurant critic Her pursuit of good food and good company leads her to New York and China France and Los Angeles and her stories of cooking and dining with world famous chefs range from the madcap to Me with Apples More Adventures PDF the sublime Throughout it all Reichl makes each and ever. I liked the real foodie parts of this book but it pretty uickly devolved into the sort of memoir where I felt somewhat aghast for Ruth’s friends family former and current spouses and lovers YikesTMIIt would have comforted me if she had stuck an apple in her mouth rather than telling me uite so much about her infidelitiesSPOILERSI don’t know why this is soshe just seemed so stupidly self destructive at some points and yet constantly fell forward into better and better jobs I really was not happy to find out at the end of the book that she was going to achieve her goal of having a child
