Bookish: Relish by Lucy Knisley

Book Review, Relish by Lucy Knisley.jpg

I had my eyes on "Relish" for a long time, since it was published. And one day of excessive book shoppinh spree it became mine. "Relish" its an autobiography graphic novel about Lucy's life among food. Growing up with foodie parents too, in a kitchen stacked with exciting and exotic ingredients I can definitely relate to this graphic novel.

And you will relate too. There are so many things to adore in this little book and its writing and its exuberant illustrations are in them.See her growing old and finding the love between cheese and art, adjusting from New York’s life style to the countryside and visiting episodically Mexico and Venice. Also, because as you may already know this is not an ordinary graphic novel, you can find yummy recipes to try between her stories. sides' life.

NeuroTrivial: The fact that we, as adults enrich our memories with details as what-who-where-when-why, makes them more stable and less easy for them to be forgotten. That's why children forget easier but that's another story to tell. Well, I put another parameter in my memories, food. Some of the vividest memories of places that I have been and things that I have done there are inextricably connected with a dish worth to remember. I can retain the pleasure of eating, the taste, the texture, the dish's look, everything. This little prologue goes for why I really loved this comic so so much. Cause it's mostly fascinating seeing your very own thoughts about food written by another person, especially when it happens to be illustrated by an artist like Lucy.

Some people eat to live. We live to eat and that's magical only by itself.

Find "Relish" in Amazon.com.
