Summary
This is the story of how, armed with nothing but a love of food and the words of the great 20th century food writer M.F.K. Fisher, Jackie Kai Ellis begins a journey - from France to Italy, then the Congo and back again - to find herself. Along the way, she goes to pastry school in Paris, eats the most perfect apricots over the Tuscan hills, watches a family of gorillas grazing deep in the Congolese brush, has her heart broken one last time on a bridge in Lyon, and, ultimately, finds a path to life and joy. Includes several recipes
