Jan 18, 2013
Lucy Knisely has invited us all into her kitchen. Her real kitchen to be sure, as this graphic novel does include recipes sure to be on any foodie’s To-Do list, but also her memory-kitchen. Lucy’s very personal collection of nostalgic stories all tie in with her family’s tradition of cooking, dining, and sharing. Reading this book was like being invited in for a holiday dinner. Her work’s message is a simple one of cherishing friends, family, and experiences which loses nothing for being so straightforward. On the contrary, it feels warm, friendly, familiar, and new. It wraps the reader in a homey comfort like warm bread and satisfies like brilliant dinner conversation.
