“A feast, a voyage, and a marvel.” Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love
“Powell writes like a culinary Chris Rock—profane, honest, and very funny.” Seattle Times
“Her writing is feisty and unrestrained, especially as she details killing lobsters, tackling marrowbones and cooking late into the night…her voice is endearing enough that readers will quickly forgive such lapses. Both home cooks and devotees of Bridget Jones–style dishing will be caught up in Powell’s funny, sharp-tongued but generous writing.”   Publishers Weekly
“Indulge in this memoir of marrow and butter, knowing there is always a bitter green to balance the taste.” Kirkus Reviews
