Relish - review

Relish:  My Life in the Kitchen
Lucy Knisley
publisher FirstSecond
This link:  MacMillan  has the first few pages for you to enjoy
available April 2013

Wonderful graphic memoir. Lucy Knisley describes growing up with parents who loved food and passed on that love to her. As a child she moved from New York City to the country, a cultural shock. Her discovery of Junk food was "my most parentally-abhorred rebellion." 

A recipe is drawn in easy-to-follow steps at the end of each chapter; there's a secret topping to make chocolate chip cookies even better. 

She uses the word "relish" three different ways, meanings, in three sentences including a quote from Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. Marvelous book. I'm hungry!

This was my first Lucy Knisley book.  It won't be my last --- I immediately looked to see what else I could find by her.
