Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Reichl’s hilarious, heart-warming, mouth-watering gastronomic comedy is based on the former NEW YORK TIMES critic’s food and restaurant columns and experiences. Disguised as her own silver-haired mother or a Marilyn Monroe look-alike or a redhead, among others, Reichl differentiates the best from the pretenders among the restaurants of New York City. Best moments: little son, Nicky, learns the secret of the world-famous hash browns of The Palms, which he refuses to share with Mom, and Reichl's date (in disguise, of course) with a very sexy stranger. This is not a book for dieters; the food is simply too delectable. M.T.B. 2006 Audie Award Winner © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
