Famed food restaurant reviewer, author and TV personality Ruth Reichl’s first novel is as light as gossamer spun sugar – perfect for dockside reading.
Ruth Reichl’s first novel is as light as gossamer spun sugar.
Using New York’s fine foods scene and publishing world as an appetizing backdrop, Reichl serves up a modern and decades-old mystery in a fast-paced, breezy feast.
Delicious chronicles its heroine Billie Breslin as she starts a new life at an iconic food magazine. Soon, Billie is searching through archival documents — and her own memories — to unravel two transformative, life-changing stories.
Though the story is slightly far-fetched and Reichl over-complicates it in places, for those who enjoy browsing cookbooks and reading Foodie lit, Delicious is a fun, frothy addition to the cottage library.
