This book feels like a fantasy, a fairy-tale where the main character gets all her wishes fulfilled. That wasn't what I was expecting. but it has definitely stayed with me much longer than I expected as well, and I love the dreaminess of it. I guess it must be nice to be Stella and have all your wishes magically come true thanks to Paris and friends with money -- oh, and slender, gamin, beauty doesn't hurt at all -- but at least her adventures were interesting and full of passionate connoisseurs of art and literature and food.

Ruth Reichl is one of those famous people that I wish I knew in real life so we could just hang out. She seems no nice and fun and the way she writes about food makes me think maybe I could actually, willingly, eat pig brains or rabbits cooked in their own blood if only I was dining with Ruth.

This particular memoir is about her unexpected stint as editor in chief at Gourmet magazine and I liked it as much as her other books.

I’m not sure if this book is really for everyone but if you enjoy food writing or her, I think this is a winner.… (mere)

I want to give this 3.5 stars. I'm not completely sure which way to round the figure -- I want to give it 4 because overall I feel good about the book but I'm settling on three because there is just too much stuff here. In the book they talk about a thing called snowball cookies -- and I think this book is the snowball cookie of books. Good ingredients, good intention, but not quite anything but sweet in the end.

There's a little bit of everything here: quirky characters, charming settings, romance, mystery, WWII history lessons, evocative food descriptions, even a recipe as a bonus. The trick, I think, is that the balance isn't exactly right.

The book starts out a little bit too twee but eventually gets into a mystery involving old letters and a secret room. The letters are nice but not as intriguing as the characters in the book find them so at first this section feels a little forced. Eventually, I was swept up into the mystery of the letters and the librarian who hid them.

I liked the people, I liked the story, I liked the romance but I feel like this needed a little something else to make it truly sing.

Worth reading when you're in the mood for a cozy and sweet book.
