Review: Comfort Me with Apples by Ruth Reichl

Comfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the TableComfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the Table by Ruth Reichl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In spite of some of the content--including Reichl's extramarital affairs and those of her husband, for example--this was still an enjoyable memoir. This starts where Tender at the Bone left off and covers the beginning of Reichl's career as a restaurant critic. I especially enjoyed the glimpse of the young Wolfgang Puck.
For those who don't know who Reichl is, she has been the restaurant editor, food editor, and critic for the LA Times, critic for the New York Times, and editor of Gourmet magazine. She is a very good writer, bringing the sights and smells of the countries and kitchens that she visited to life, and knowing of the success to come makes reading about her struggles that much more enjoyable.
