Tea & A Book: Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton

Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant ChefBlood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I enjoy reading biographies of chefs.  I like to see their journey's to becoming chef and the different things in their lives that lead to that career.  In the past I've read them about the celebrity chefs that I watch on TV so reading one by a chef that I had never heard about was a little strange for me.  So add Gabrielle's strange journey and it was a wholly unique experience.  One where I enjoyed reading about her journey, but by the end of the book, I didn't much care for her.

We didn't have a real group meeting this month. I was out sick on both our originally meeting date and our followup date.  Luckily, our evening book discussion group has also read this book and someone was able to cover for me to lead the discussion.  I'm told it wasn't a well liked book.  Knowing my members, I think they probably felt like I did that Gabrielle wasn't a likable person.

With the holidays fast approaching we decided to do books of short stories for December and January. For December we are reading Ford County by John Grisham
