The Recipe Club
By Andrea Israel & Nancy Garfinkel
Polhemus Press, 2009. 360 pgs. Fiction
Lilly and Val, friends from childhood, reveal their feelings, secrets, and recipes through a series of letters, until a misunderstanding separates them for years and a death forces them to decide if they want to reconcile.
Even though this book is over 300 pages, it reads very quickly since it is written in letters and emails. I really enjoyed how the book incorporated over 80 recipes throughout the book. The story itself I enjoyed parts of, but over all for me it was just so-so. Anyone looking for a book on women’s relationships and some great recipes will want to take a look at The Recipe Club.
