    Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty fierce, hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Above all she sought family, particularly the thrill and the magnificence of the one from her childhood that, in her adult years, eluded her. Hamilton’s ease and comfort in a kitchen were instilled in her at an early age when her parents hosted grand parties, often for more than one hundred friends and neighbors.

    Overall

    Some reviewers haven't liked the author's voice or style. Its her partricular personality; I loved her dry wit. She's not an actor; her voice lends layers of experience and edification to the craft. Having cooked my whole life, I can relate to her experiences with food and even her mother! I recommend this audio book wholeheartedly; it ended much too soon.

    In this wildly funny and charming memoir, Patricia Volk entertains with a unique perspective of New York in the mid- to late-twentieth century and of a bigger-than-life family that owned fourteen restaurants, including Morgen's in the garment district....

    Overall

    This book doesn't delve into the history of the family restaurant. I was hoping was an indepth description of the life of a family in the restaurant business.
    Instead, I had to keep reminding myself what this book was supposed to be about. There is very little about the family business or any 'adventures' at all pertaining to a restaurant family.
