Narrator Mia Barron delivers this charming entrée from the writer of the food blog “Orangette.” In a solid, nuanced performance, Barron captures Molly Wizenberg’s wistfulness as she remembers her father, whom she lost to cancer, and how he and her mother taught her about food—its great comfort and its excitement. With that formative experience it’s not surprising that as a young adult she was seduced away from her graduate studies in Paris by the city’s culinary delights. Later, she came back home to help care for her dad and took a friend's suggestion to begin writing a blog. The story of how this choice led her to find her true passion—food writing—AND her true love—a fellow foodie—is deliciously served up in Barron's honeyed delivery.
