It took me about a third of My Berlin Kitchen by Luisa Weiss
to really get into it – but I am glad I persevered. Luisa Weiss is a food/life blogger who also worked in publishing. This is a memoir of her early life with food and about how she ended up moving from New York to Berlin (where she was born to an American father and Italian mother) to be with the love of her life.
There are recipes at the end of most of the chapters. And her recipe for potato salad has changed the way I'll do them from now on quite markedly. I posted about it here
The book would be even more enjoyable if some photographs of the places and food had been included. The author mentions taking lots of photos and is a food blogger so it just seemed odd that you didn't see any images of it all other than through words. Maybe she could do a special edition??
