Reviews

"Reichl writes with gusto, and her story has all the ingredients of a modern fairy tale: hard work, weird food, and endless curiosity."
--The New Yorker

"So many memoirs annoy by telling either too much or too little. This one tells just enough....The book reads not like life described but like life lived and then shaped....Each story affirms [Reichl's] desire to get beyond the surface, even as she celebrates its unlikely depths."
--The New York Times

"Magnificent, riotous, erotic...[Comfort Me with Apples] is an extended, lilting song about lovesickness and the restorative succor of good food....Two courses of Reichl's literary cooking will leave still-ravenous readers hoping for a third serving soon. [Rating: ] A."
--Entertainment Weekly
