Overview

The Recipe Club: A Novel About Food and Friendship by Andrea Israel, Nancy Garfinkel

“A look at the difficulties of sustaining childhood bonds, it’s also a satisfying meditation on how nourishment for the body can replenish the soul.”
People

 

A novel that combines the moving story of a friendship told in letters with more than 80 delicious recipes, The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel (Taking Tea) and Nancy Garfinkel (The Wine Lover’s Guide to Wine Country) is a wonderful literary banquet. A celebration of female bonding and excellent cooking—with scrumptious dishes developed by New York Times food columnist Melissa Clark—The Recipe Club will satisfy readers who previously devoured The Friday Night Knitting Club, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

This book was disappointing on many levels.  First, don't read it for the recipes as they are (overwhelmingly) old ones that have been around forever.  Then, I expected the "voice" of the main characters to change as they grew older (as they should have, especially in the adult e-mails) but that never happened.  The family dynamics that ended up being revealed were just weird.  Finally, after much conflict between the two adults the problems are miraculously resolved, without any real explanation.  Bottom line:  don't bother with this book unless you are stuck without anything to read!

The recipes brought back good family memories for me. The story line was a little drawn out but still a good read.

This is a good book for someone who wants a quick read with a bit of substance. An interesting look at childhood friendship and what makes a friend.

This book was a good read. I found it hard to put it down. As a pastry chef I found a lot of great recipes. I'm now in the process of finding another book just like this. Any other books like this with recipes is what I'm looking for.
