I really loved Relish by Lucy Knisley. It made me want to go out and eat anything and everything that I had never tried before. It also made me want to cook and bake everything imaginable.
I wish I had been as adventurous an eater as Lucy was as a child. She was lucky to be brought up by foodie parents who ate a variety of things. I really don't remember most of what we ate when I was little. It pressed for an answer I would say, chicken or spaghetti every night with an iceberg lettuce salad. On Fridays there would be pizza. I don't know that I would have wanted to try fois grais as a child, but I would have been much more likely to try it then, before I knew what it was.
I really like the way Lucy tells a story or anecdote. Her drawings are great and she always has little funny notes throughout. I loved her recipes she included and have been dying for huevos rancheros ever since.
I recommend this book to foodies and foodie wannabes. I am very inspired to go out on a limb and trying cooking new and different things (maybe not lemonade chicken, though).
