Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness by Sasha Martin
I almost didn't finish this book. Martin writes at the beginning about how her and her brother were taken away from their mother, but it is unclear about exactly why, and so I found myself not really trusting her.
I did eventually finish the book though. Martin lives with various families and then writes about how she made her way as an adult, creates her own family, and cooks her way through the world by making a meal from every country over the course of four years or so.
There was something off about this book for me. I never really connected with the author or felt an affinity for her. Kinda odd.
