Amazon.de

New York Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichl shares lessons learned at the hands (and kitchen counters) of family members and friends throughout her life, from growing up with her taste-blind mother to the comfort of cream puffs while away at boarding school on "Mars" (Montreal seemed just as far away) to her most memorable meal, taken on a mountainside in Greece.

Her stories shine with the voices and recipes of those she has encountered on the way, such as her Aunt Birdie's maid and companion, Alice, who first taught Reichl both the power of cooking and how to make perfect apple dumplings; the family's mysterious patrician housekeeper, Mrs. Peavey, who always remembered to make extra pastry for the beef Wellington; Serafina, the college roommate with whom Reichl explored a time of protest and political and personal discovery; and, finally, cookbook author Marion Cunningham, who, after tales of her midlife struggles and transformation, gave Reichl the strength to overcome her own anxieties.

Reichl's wry and gentle humor pervades the book, and makes readers feel as if they're right at the table, laughing at one great story after another (and delighting in a gourmet meal at the same time, of course). Reichl's narrative of a life lived and remembered through the palate will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

In her memoir Tender at the Bone, Ruth Reichl, the former NY Times food critic serves to her readers a witty and poignant slice of her life growing up in a kitchen.
At a young age, Ms. Reichl who grew up in Manhattan, began learning to cook and experimenting with recipes in her parents kitchen at a young age, in what would become her first foray into a lifetime interest and then career. Ms. Reichl writes lovingly of her passion for foods and preparations, and how to come up with innovative recipes and the world of chefs and restaurants. And she also writes about how this passion helped to sustain her during difficult times in rather unusual family.
As the reader, we journey along with her as she covers over for her schizophrenic mother who invites hordes of people and has nothing to serve to them. We sit by her side as a wonderful houskeeper takes Ms. Reichl under her wing and entertains her, where else, but in the kitchen as Ms. Reichl begins to love the culinary world. And then we are there when she attends college in Wisconsin and first waits on tables and then is promoted to assistant chef. And finally we have a front row seat as Ms. Reichl takes her first job as a food critic in Berkeley where she addresses her own concerns about inheriting her mother's illness and overcomes some of her own fears. And all the while we read about mouth watering dishes and long for the book to go on and on.
I read this book much too quickly and am now longing for another slice of her life as she eventaully moved on to the NY Times.

I first heard of Ruth Reichl during her radio interview on "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross. Later, a friend told me that Reichl also has a radio show in New York. Ah, those lucky New Yorkers...
In this book, Ruth Reichl's stories cut across the many planes of her world: food, family, self, cities, friends, and last but definitely not least -- mental illness.
Though each story in this set of memoirs is nominally "complete" with a starting and ending point that lets it stand on its own, there is nonetheless a sense of skittishness and patchiness that permeates the collection. Characters enter and exit the book with scarce, absent, or post-facto introduction. Episodes end abruptly, and suddenly Ruth is somewhere else -- in a different place and time.
These effects are surely intentional. Because they are a part of how Ruth has lived and continues to live in a life influenced by her mother's manic depression, her own emerging mental crises which! ! are mentioned in the closing chapters, and the places and times within which she lives.
Most of the stories-with-crises that Riechl tells from childhood through adulthood end on hopeful notes, but you often don't find out what happens afterward. The same with the greater story of Riechl's life -- we are hopeful that she will come out of this ok, but we can't be sure.
Readers of this book may also be interested in Ron Suskind's _A Hope in the Unseen_ (also reviewed by a few folks on this website) which ends in a similar way.

Worth the price of the book is Ruth Reichl's story about learning how to walk that razor's edge - as a waitress - between restaurant customers and chefs.
An experienced waiter tells her that the chefs are in a constant state of war with the customers. If a customer wants to send back an overdone steak, the waitress must remember that the chefs are not at war with her. If she goes into the kitchen and confesses, humbly, that she should have written "medium," but mistakenly wrote "well done," she will get some grief from the chefs, but at least will get a new steak.
If she goes in and says the customer said the steak was overdone, she will get only ranting, and may not get another steak at all.
I work in the advertising business, and the relationship is identical between clients and creatives. The only way an account executive can succeed as a go-between pretend that he or she was mistaken about the client's desires.
Once in a while, you lea! ! rn something truly insightful. This was such a lesson. Beyond that, this book is delightful, warm, witty - and even has great recipes.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. März 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Tender at the bone manages to find its stride only during the later part of the book. The "growing up" part of the book finds young Ruth constantly whining and blaming her parents for making her so screwed-up. Ruth should look in the mirror. Then she would see that she probably caused her parents much more grief than they ever casued her. As Ruth moves to college, we find out how wonderful and ahead-of-the-times on social issues she was. She seems intent on patting herself on the back and reminding us that few people were as unpredjudiced and open as she was back then. After a few pages on how she liked to get stoned, the book finally starts to hit its stride when Ruth arrives in Berkley and studies under the legendary Alice Waters. However, the chapters at the end do not make up for the endless self-love and analysis that the reader has had to endure up to this point. If you want to read Reichl, stick to her old restaurant reviews. This book reads (mostly) like something that should have been left between Ruth and her therapist. If only Ruth felt that way.
