Lucy Knisley loves food. The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, this talented young cartoonist comes by her obsession honestly. In her forthright, thoughtful, and funny memoir, Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life. Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe—many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy's original inventions.  A welcome read for anyone who ever felt more passion for a sandwich than is strictly speaking proper, Relish is a graphic novel for our time: it invites the reader to celebrate food as a connection to our bodies and a connection to the earth, rather than an enemy, a compulsion, or a consumer product.

While I wouldn’t consider this on par with favorite graphic novel memoirs like Persepolis or Fun Home, it was an enjoyable little trip into a genre I ...

4.0 I could never be a Cheesemonger
I like food. In point of fact, I looooove food. I'm always suspicious of people who aren't interested in branching out and trying new dishes. What kind of a person doesn't want to explore what fabulous foods might be out there that they haven't discovered? (I even keep trying bananas despite my utte...

I can't recall how I had first heard about the book, but however I was able to hear about the book, I am glad I was able to find out about it. It was a nice break from the heavier reading that I had been taking over the past month or so and really liked the illustrations that graced the book and pa...
