"Hamilton can write....BLOOD, BONES AND BUTTER traces nearly all of Hamilton's life and career....It's a story of hungers specific and vague, conquered and unappeasable, and what it lacks in makes up for in the shimmer of Hamilton's best writing."
From the Publisher
Annotation BLOOD, BONES AND BUTTER is a gripping memoir of a woman growing up and finding her place in the world. The fact that she became the chef and owner of a successful restaurant (Prune) in New York's East Village is not exactly the point, though it provides a satisfying arena in which the drama of defining professional struggles can be played out. And, practically speaking, it offers a popular niche in which this moving book can land and hopefully be discovered. Gabrielle Hamilton has written a convincing testament to the fact that having something you care passionately about--even in a vague and undefined way--often presents the best chance for a lost soul to emerge from the mire of despair, drugs, and underachievement. Her honesty and the clarity of her writing will captivate non-foodies as well as those who want the inside goods on the food world.
