KITCHEN YARNS Notes on Life, Love, and Food

by | Read by Nina Alvamar

Biography & Memoir • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Nina Alvamar narrates this collection of 27 essays in which author Ann Hood muses about her childhood, jobs, children, marriages, and the steady force that food and cooking have been throughout her life. Alvamar skillfully bridges the gap between listener and author, creating a strong emotional connection as she reads Hood's stories of learning to make her mother's meatballs and her grandmother's tomato sauce and of cooking with her own children. Listeners are invited into a variety of kitchens to eat tomato pie at a summer beach rental; to feed soft food to a baby in a second-floor walkup in Providence, Rhode Island; and to savor fresh salmon with friends in Oregon. Each essay ends with a recipe or two, read by Alvamar. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
