How do you remember things? What are your clearest memories? Lucy Knisley’s most vivid memories are all connected with cooking and eating. Her mom was a chef and her dad was a connoisseur of fine food. Lucy grew up around caterers, cooks, bakers, food critics, and other gourmet types. In Relish, she recreates some of her tastiest childhood memories in a “graphic memoir” format that combines stories with her fantastic artwork, recipes, and even a few photos. She goes from being “the kid in the kitchen” to sneaking McDonald’s French fries to being the coffee kid on a fancy photo shoot with Kate Hudson. And did I mention getting her first period in Mexico on a trip with her mom and best guy friend, Drew? Yeah, things get awkward, but the tamales, candied cactus, and limonadas make up for it. Along the way Knisley shares illustrated recipes for pesto, pickles, sushi rolls, and more. Whether you’re an aspiring foodie or just love a great coming-of-age story, you’ll savor every page of this mouth-watering graphic memoir!
