The group was overall pleasantly surprised by this book. Not everyone had read a graphic novel before, but happily liked it more than they expected. Some thought from the cover it was going to be a kids book. But everyone really seemed to like it, especially Lucy's tone, and her great talent for combining her writing and illustration abilities.
- picture of her drinking vinegar with her dad.
- the relationship she has with her folks, and their friendly divorced relationship.
- A light and easy read.
- Wanted it to last longer.
- Loved how the recipes were illustrated.
- Travels to Japan and trying out interesting foods.
- Wish all cookbooks had this many illustrations.
- Great humor...little details. Such as Mexico. Drew's little sister - quite the lady.
- Hereditary cheese lovin'
The only thing folks seemed to actually dislike, was that there weren't more recipes!
Katie S. recommended picking up Lucy's travelog French Milk, about a trip she took to Paris with her mom.
As usual, we ate very well at our meeting:
Next month's discussion will be around Gulp : Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach. This book is lots of fun and focuses a little bit on food, but a lot more on digestion. Katie S. will be leading the group, as Dawn has a work conflict.
