The wonderful sequel to Ruth Reichl's best-selling memoir Tender at the Bone.

In the sequel to her best-selling autobiography Tender at the Bone, Ruth Reichl continues her culinary adventures in pursuit of good meals and good company. Reichl recounts her transformation from chef to food writer, a process that led her through restaurants (and occasionally bedrooms) from Bangkok to Paris to Los Angeles.

It is an apprenticeship by turns delightful and daunting but unfailingly entertaining, from a summer lunch with M.F.K Fisher to a mad dash through the produce market with Wolfgang Puck and a garlic feast with Alice Waters. She is unafraid - even eager - to poke holes in the pretensions of food critics, making each meal a hilarious and instructive occasion for novices and experts alike.

In Comfort Me with Apples, Reichl once again demonstrates her inimitable ability to combine food writing, humour and memoir into an art form.

While all good food writers are humorous . . . few are so riotously, effortlessly entertaining as Ruth Reichl. New York Times Book Review
