“All recipes are, in some way, an exploration of the link between food and memory. We cook the food we remember loving and, in so doing, make new connections and bonds. The amount of love, through food, Paula has given so many over the years makes this biography-cum-cookbook a truly wonderful project.”—Yotam Ottolenghi
Every serious food person knows that Paula Wolfert changed our world, but in this book we learn what a fascinating time she had while she was doing it. Part biography, part cookbook, part history, Unforgettable introduces our greatest cookbook writer to the wider audience she deserves. There has never been a book quite like this one.” — Ruth Reichl
"Unforgettable is a brilliant summation of the resilience, exuberance, and expertise that we know and love of Paula Wolfert.– Mario Batali
We're all truly indebted to Emily Kaiser Thelin, Eric Wolfinger, Andrea Nguyen, and Toni Tajima for capturing these beautiful, inspiring, and very important memories of Paula's life and travels.— April Bloomfield“Unforgettable is the story of the exacting, passionate, genuine, driven and indefatigable Paula Wolfert, the ultimate expert on the cooking of the Mediterranean. Emily Kaiser Thelin's well-written and poignant narrative recounts the tale of this true pioneer of American culinary history.”— Jacques Pépin

Starting with the introduction, you know you are in good hands. Emily Thelin knows her subject and clearly admires her but this isn't simply gushing. It's the real deal.
Wolfert's story is enchanting and you can sense her enthusiasm as the story builds. There are a lot of details about Wolfert's life that are new to me (I am a gushing fan) and it's like learning secrets about an old friend.
The recipes are strong and I think the highest compliment is that my 15 year old son picked up the book and and made sandpot mushrooms this morning.
Her Alzheimer struggle is very real and moving but more inspiring than anything.
If Wolfert's books have seemed a little disjointed as she goes from Morocco to Spain to France and then clay pots, Unforgettable puts it all in context. I can't imagine not loving this book.
The book is a bio of Paula Wolfert's life, includes 50 of her recipes, and an inside look at the cutting edge community of chefs and food writers, here and abroad, from the Beat Generation of 1958 to today. Wolfert's life work contributes richly to the foods, recipes and books that we take for granted. A chronicle of a woman to whom we are all indebted. Brava, Paula!
And great thanks to Emily Kaiser Thelin, Eric Wolfinger, Toni Tajima and Andrea Nguyen who knew that this book needed to exist and they accomplished it.
