"The Best Thing I Ever Ate" show on the Food Network about a year ago featuring Prune. The thing to order was a bacon sandwich. I remember it having orange marmalade on it. I do not remember the star chef who recommended it, but I committed the name of the place to memory and put it on my list of restaurants for my next visit to the city. A friend, who knew I was going to be there for a month, suggested I read "Blood, Bones and Butter" as a fun way to prepare for the trip. I was delighted to learn it was written by Gabrielle Hamilton, the chef/owner of Prune. It is not a book of recipes, it is her memoir and it is fantastic!

|Cheeseburger and Fries. Deliciousness!|
"I will read this book to my children and then burn all the books I have written for pretending to be anything even close to this."
"Gabrielle Hamilton approaches storytelling the same way she does cooking—with thoughtful creativity that delights the senses."
"Magnificent. Simply the best memoir by a chef ever. Ever."
