If Julia Child had cooked Italian for a gay husband, used sugar to sweeten a sour childhood, and hosted buffets for a better world, she could have written Tasting Home: Coming of Age in the Kitchen.

In this food memoir, Judith Newton shares the unforgettable story of a life on the front lines of activism and in the kitchen. During a difficult childhood, food and cooking were sources of comfort and emotional sustenance.  And in the decades to come, through her marriage to a gay man, her discovery of feminism, her life in a commune, and her career as an academic, she used food to sustain personal and political relationships, mourn losses, and celebrate victories. As she earned her activist stripes in the 1960s and beyond, she also learned how food could ease tension, foster community, and build cross-racial ties.

Tasting Home combines recipes with personal vignettes, in the classic form of food memoirs by writers such as M.F.K. Fisher and Ruth Reichl, to take us on a remarkable journey through the cuisines, cultural spirit, and politics of the 1940s through the 2000s inviting us to feel how deeply food is tied to identity, love, community, and political engagement.

See an essay based on this book, "A Valentine for My Gay Ex-Husband,"
at Huffington Post Judith Newton.

Tasting Home has received ten independent press awards and a starred review (meaning
"outstanding in its genre") from Publisher's Weekly Select.


Tasting Home is the history of a woman's emotional education, the romantic tale of a marriage between a straight woman and a gay man, and an exploration of the ways that cooking can lay the ground work for personal healing, intimate relation, and political community as well. Organized by decade and by the cookbooks that shaped author Judith Newton's life, it takes us on an extraordinary journey thought the cuisines, cultural spirit, and politics of the 1940s through 2011, complete with recipes.

"In this elegantly written work, there's a sense of tension, of waiting for the other shoe to drop that creates a subliminal buzz. Through her personal story, Newton manages to weave in the entire course of the culture, a reflection of her skills as an historian and an accomplished writer as well as a born storyteller."

Jeanette Ferrary, author of Out of the Kitchen and M.F.K. Fisher and Me

"In this captivating memoir, each vignette is pitch-perfect, lively, and engaging, striking a delicate balance between self-disclosure and universal themes of acceptance, love, community-building, and political engagement."

Janet A. Flammang, author of The Taste for Civilization

"Influenced by the civil rights struggle, the women's movement, and the AIDS epidemic, Tasting Home is an odyssey of emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth and, like a grand meal, it is a resounding success."

Belinda Robnett, author of African-American Women in the Struggle for Civil Rights

Format: Kindle Edition
Gleich zu Anfang - ich liebe Bücher und ich liebe es zu Kochen. Durch meinen längeren Aufenthalt in den USA vermisse ich manche der typischen Gerichte. Da empfahl eine Freundin mir dieses preisgekrönte Buch von Judith Newton. Leider bisher nur in Englisch erhältlich. Es ist definitiv ganz anders als was man bisher unter den durchschnittlichen Kochbüchern kennt. Das Buch fühlt sich unheimlich wie zu Hause an. Es ist eine Lebensgeschichte, gespickt mit dazu passenden Rezepten. Wer kennt das nicht, bestimmte Gerichte mit bestimmten Momenten zu verbinden? Sehr einfühlsam und emotional schildert die Autorin ihr Leben, angefangen mit ihren teils dramatischen Erfahrungen mit ihrer eigenen Mutter in den 1940-iger Jahren, über die Zeit der sexuellen Befreiung bis heute. Man muss dieses Buch einfach lieben!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I just loved this book so much! 24. Oktober 2016
Von George LeFurjah - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
☀️❤️☀️❤️☀️❤️A review by Mrs. L❤️🌞❤️🌞❤️🌞 To be perfectly honest, I had read a review of this book and I ordered it thinking I was getting more of a cookbook/recipe collection with little writings and notes thrown in here and there. In the review, there had been a reference to a certain recipe and I actually wanted to see the recipe for the pure pleasure of just trying it.

This has been such a busy Fall. Far too busy. When I opened this book and saw all of the writing, I thought "Erk! I don't have time to read this right now" and left it to its lonely resting spot on the coffee table. For a month. Every time I looked at it, I could not summon the mental energy to even consider opening the pages because I was convinced it would be a long, intensive process of digging into some cook's life and times and that given the choice, perhaps I should give it to a friend who had time to read and not become engrossed in something that could have been a cookbook. So, that is what I decided to do today. I would copy down the recipe that had prompted my impulsive purchase and then cleanse my soul by delighting a friend who reads intensively with this book.

Soooooooo . . . I found the recipe, wrote it down and just happened to glance at the page of writing across from the recipe. I read the last paragraph. Then I read the paragraph before it. Then the one before that. Oh. Hell. No. This is not happening. I had read the whole chapter backwards, paragraph by paragraph. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BOOK.

Then, I read the next chapter. Then, I had to read the chapter after that. My husband brought me more coffee. Later, he brought me lunch. Then dinner. It's 9:30 at night and I stopped three chapters before the end and decided the sane thing to do would be to go back to the beginning. Which I did. Forcing myself to read more slowly. Realizing I had landed on a memoir that was just exquisite. I wanted to savor the reading experience.

This is such a great book. I am ashamed that I was so judgemental about it. It's such a warm, earthy, centered exploration of life. Punctuated with food. It is so raw and honest. It's intense and poignant. When Dick died, I felt like I had lost someone, too.

As I am rolling through to the end of my journey through this book I have this building sense of . . .hmmm . . . Satisfaction? Like I escaped for the day into one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time. Such a great read. I will feel sad when the book is done. I will feel like it added to my reading enjoyment in that I find great enjoyment in weaving a love of food and cooking into my life and with my family and relationships. Books like this tend to dredge up memories. Tomorrow, I'll probably kick around the house wondering why I didn't journal my experiences cooking tempura for 20 in a vat of hot oil on a burner teetertottering on concrete stepping stones on my farm table built in 1837 . . . Back when I was younger.

It's funny . . .I no longer even feel like making the recipes in the book. I just feel like cooking. Enjoying the sensation of infusing that overlay of creative emotions when you cook and eat. Experiencing that sensation with family and friends.


Lovely book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting memoir, with recipes 13. November 2014
Von The Bionic Stan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was an interesting mix. It was really the story of a child who felt unloved and worthless, in a house where food was a stand-in for love. There was a recipe every couple of pages, usually for a dish whose significance had just been explained.

As Newton grew up, she made some good choices and some bad ones, but with the help of some supportive friends and a good therapist repaired her damaged self esteem and became a very successful college professor. What didn't change was that cooking remained a means of self expression for her. It was interesting to see how her sophistication about food grew, as America became more sophisticated.

The later sections of the book grow to be more autobiography and less recipe; also, most of the recipes in the second half are being republished (with permission), less interesting to me than her mother's home recipes. Though I wouldn't call the second half bad, I enjoyed the first half more.

Either Newton writes carefully, or she had a competent editor: I found too few errors of English to distract me, and I distract easily. More books should pay attention to writing clearly and correctly, as Newton did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Exceptional, Refreshing Read 13. April 2017
Von A. L. McLean - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As someone who obsessively reads culinary memoir, I found Tasting Home an exceptional, refreshing read—traits I wish more memoir could boast. Newton’s place-based narrative achieves and maintains the tension and personal development essential to a meaningful memoir. The brief chapters punctuated by recipes make this an ideal read for anyone who can only dip into the memoir for 10-20 minutes at a time. Or it can be easily digested in a leisurely evening while sipping wine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not a cookbook ... A food memoir of substance! 10. September 2014
Von TuEpicure - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Newton's book is a treat for the mind. I enjoyed reading it and ended up using it in a class I was teaching about food, domesticity, and women. It chronicles the complicated relationships she developed through cooking and eating -- uncomfortable ones as a child in her parents home and then more positive ones as she cooked and ate with friends and lovers. Most significant were those meals she shared with colleagues and activists as a college student and then later as a college professor. She speaks about the significance of this food work in creating community. The story comes full circle when she is able to create a loving bond with her daughter through the foods they cooked and ate together ... a warm and heartfelt mother-daughter story which heals some of the pain she experienced with her own mother. I would highly recommend this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Growing Up with Kitchen Memories 13. August 2014
Von Grammar To Go - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Tasting Home: Coming of Age in the Kitchen is a neat book that reminds me that not all mothers can cook and not all mothers are very good at "mothering" their children--especially their daughters. This book takes a very personal look at how our memories are so deeply founded on our past with our parents and on the atmosphere of our home life. I enjoyed the journey with Judith Newton and both her cooking adventures and her growing more compassionate as she recognized the limitations of her mother's ability to love. It sounded like a 60s child learning to grow up the hard way, but it was still a good read. And I enjoyed the recipes that I thought were easy enough to try. Worth the read if you like to cook and if you have had the kind of difficulty coming from a past similar to Newton's.
