Relish: My Life in the Kitchen
By Lucy Knisley
MacMillan Children's Publishing Group, 2013. 192 pages. Nonfiction Graphic Novel
This graphic novel portrays a series of vignettes of important moments in the author's life involving food. Like many of us, food shaped certain memories, suffused them with the recollection of flavors, aromas, and all sorts of tastiness. Each vignette ended with a fabulous graphically rendered recipe of significant importance to the stories she tells.
This is a simple enough memoir of the author's formative years, but filled with humor and appreciation for the way food can knit together friendships and the significant moments of our lives.
