    Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley Graphic Novel Fir

    Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley
    Graphic Novel
    First Second, 2013
    173 pages
    Recommended for grades 8+ 

    My relationship with food:  I love good food.  I also love a lot of bad foods.  I love cooking if: I have enough space, the right ingredients don't cost half a paycheck, I have the correct cookware, and best done with or for someone that makes me smile.  My reality of cooking: I often find myself too tired to create what I would like to be creating.
    With a reality like that you would think I'd find none of myself in the pages of this book.  Wrong!  Yes Lucy grew up around gourmet cooking, and she herself is a true foodie, but she is also 100% down to earth about food.  The drawings are colorful and sweet.  Each section of her story is divided by a recipe that came from the previous section.  
    More than a story of food, also a story of one young girl growing up, and how food follows her through each phase of her life.  Loved the back, filled with photographs of the people and places and times in her story.
    Fun read, for foodies or not!  I made the recommendation of grade 8+ due to nudity and sexual references.  They are not crude, but when deciding on adding a book to a classroom library you might like to know beforehand what's inside!
