Garlic and Sapphires
"Garlic and Sapphires is the third in a trilogy by Ruth Reichl on her own life. What you've got is a passionate food critic whose got an extremely engaging writing style based on the writing that she's done over the course of time, and what she really does is spins it into her autobiography through food. So you've got recipes mixed in, you've got stories about - in Garlic and Sapphires about the various costumes that she employed to try and fool these chefs, because she found she was getting recognized rather quickly in New York, and was anxious to see, with Garlic and Sapphires, whether she would be able to deliver on the promise that she showed in Tender at the Bone in this third book in New York.
Fortunately, she smacked it out of the park."
