LJ Reviews 2006 February #1

Life wasn't working out the way 29-year-old Powell had anticipated--working a dead-end job at a government agency; living in a cramped, dingy apartment in Queens; and worrying about a health condition that could make it impossible for her to have children. Reaching a point of emotional meltdown, she visited her parents' home in Austin, TX, where she rediscovered her mother's old copy of Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. A short time later, she made the instinctual, yet somewhat arbitrary, decision to give her life direction by making all 524 recipes included in the classic cookbook. She set out to do this in exactly 365 days while maintaining a blog that chronicled her culinary attempts. This very funny work reflects on Powell's experience, but listeners should beware: this is not for conservatives or those unable to tolerate a hearty smattering of the "f" word, nor is it a dignified tribute to Child. In fact, the strength of the author's humor resides in her blunt, irreverent tone and mordant descriptions of meals consisting of unconventional ingredients such as kidneys, brains, and homemade jelly boiled from calves' hooves, which she describes as making her kitchen "smell like a tannery." Powell provides a well-executed narration of her entertaining memoir; recommended for all collections.--Dawn Eckenrode, Daniel A. Reed Lib., SUNY at Fredonia
