I am a huge sucker for cook books and I would say this is just an evolution used cook book with a good story It s about amazing friendship that stands the test of time and how food is such apart of our lives whether we know it or not I borrowed this from the library so I must now go buy a copy And it is going on my cookbook shelf I cannot wait to make some of these delicious recipes. Four stars for how interesting these two women are Three stars for the randomness of the structure the recipes at the end of chapters didn t always seem logical or relevant, and the narrative jumps weren t always smooth Enjoyable overall though.
