I mentioned that I noticed myself reading books on Parenting, Death, and Cooking. So here's one that falls under the Cooking category.
Luisa grew up with an Italian mother and American father in Berlin until her parents divorced. She spent some time living with her father in Massachusetts and then more time in Berlin with her mom. She lives in Paris and then New York before heading back to Berlin where she finds love.
A pretty solid book but slow at times. The recipes, especially the German ones, sound tasty but didn't seem easy enough for me to try. I did make a tomato sauce with carrots that she writes about and it made for a pretty tasty dinner.
