Editorial Reviews

Review

The New York Times Her memories are vividly rendered, infused with piquant tastes and smells....Nostalgia for the Egypt of Rossant's childhood pervades this charming book.

Chicago Tribune [Y]ou'll find vicarious pleasure in reading about this gourmet's life.

Daily News (New York) [E]ngrossing not just for its lovely style of writing but because Rossant's life has been so unusual and interesting. And getting the recipes for some of the dishes she reminisces about is an added bonus!

Alice Waters This is the kind of writing about food that stimulates your senses and connects you to the important traditions of the table....I am enchanted by this memoir.

About the Author

Colette Rossant is the author of eight cook-books and the memoirs Apricots on the Nile and Return to Paris. A James Beard Award-nominated journalist, she divides her time between New York and France.

I really enjoyed reading this book - even though I will probably never try the recipes. I read the whole book through in one sitting (although, to be truthful, it's a small book.) Besides being an interesting memoir of the author's childhood in Egypt during WWII, in a wealthy Jewish family, it's also an honest account of her alienation from her mother, which really spoke to me. The author is a good writer, which makes the book easy and rewarding to read.

This was one of my favorite all-time books. I purchased one as a gift for my sister also. I love to read about other cultures, and this was an enjoyable read.

Didn't like it. The recipes were nothing I am interested in preparing and the story just didn't catch my interest.

Not as good a story as some other cooking memoirs I've read, kind of sad. Fair recipes
