DescriptionLucy Knisley loves food. The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, this talented young cartoonist comes by her obsession honestly. In her forthright, thoughtful, and funny memoir, Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life. Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe - many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy's original inventions. A welcome read for anyone who ever felt more passion for a sandwich than is strictly speaking proper, Relish is a book for our time: it invites the reader to celebrate food as a connection to our bodies and a connection to the earth, rather than an enemy, a compulsion, or a consumer product.

Reviews for Relish
A Great Read for the Foodie Who Craves Something New
I love my food. I remember events according to what restaurant I was at, what I was eating, what I was cooking, the tastes, the smells, sigh. I love my food. Relish is a welcome graphic novel and is completely different in formatting than any other food related book or graphic novel that I've read before. The comic panels are charming and easy to follow along with. The story is just as easy to get into.
The bonus: recipes. Recipes that I actually want to try. I'm not sure if it's just the way that Knisley talks about food and the role it plays in her life or if it is the way she describes it that makes me hungry for everything she talks about. Either way, when I slow down enough to remember I will take her advice and relish what I have.
