Quotes & Awards

  • “Wizenberg's directions are laced with a charming voice that strikes a neat balance with the reflective passages. Her strong personality stands out among her generation's culinary voices.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A book that combines memoir—vignettes about her childhood in 1970s Oklahoma City, her love life and trips to Paris—with anecdote-inspired recipes…This format is itself a tried-and-true recipe. Still, Wizenberg's take is fresh, and the book is especially touching when she writes about her father.”

    Washington Post

  • “Sometimes touching, sometimes humorous, often both, this collection of essays is as much about growing up and family as it is about food. Wizenberg skillfully combines a complex mixture of mood, story, and tone to achieve a wonderful balance in each essay.” 

    Library Journal

  • “Wizenberg has a wonderful way with words—as well as food—and whether you cook or not, you'll find your mouth watering as you turn the pages of this wholly satisfying read.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

    " Ugh, I think I'm not much of a memoir reader, but I found this overwritten and off-putting. Though the author's description of her father's life and death is frequently incredibly moving, she could have benefited from a much stronger editorial hand. "

    " I really like how she writes, as well as her great recipes. I have started reading her blog on Orangette now. "

    " There is a recipe at the end of each chapter, including one for an amazing ginger-chocolate banana bread. Delish! "
