Lunch in Paris meets Adulting in this funny and poignant memoir about collapsing cakes and coming of age in your twenties and thirties.
When Amelia Morris found a beautiful chocolate cake in Bon Appétit and took the recipe home to re-create it for a Christmas day brunch she was hosting, it collapsed into a terrible (but delicious) mess that had to be served in an oversize bowl. It also paralleled the interesting and never-quite-predictable situations she’s gotten herself into throughout her life, from her one-day career as a six-year-old lady wrestler to her ill-fated job at the School of Rock in Los Angeles. As she gets older, the kitchen is where she finds that even if some of her attempts fall short of the standard set by a food magazine, they can still bring satisfaction to her and to her family and friends. Full of hilarious observations about food, family, unemployment, romance, and the excesses of modern Los Angeles, Bon Appétempt is sure to resonate with anyone who has tried and failed, and been all the better for it.
