I enjoyed the author's honesty of the trouble of packing up life in one country and moving to another. It isn't always exciting, there is a lot of loneliness and sadness. But it took me forever to read, I was getting bored quickly.

I really enjoyed this sincere, beautifully written memoir - so heartfelt I could forgive Luisa Weiss for all the food described as 'studded' with currants, olives, etc etc (somehow there was more 'studded' food towards the end of the book & by that stage I simply wanted to cheer Luisa on with each step, so I reckon she gets away with it). Nice recipes - not too many, and they belong with the story she's telling.

"Born in 1977 West Berlin to an American father who made an amazing tomato sauce and an Italian mother who didn't like to cook, chef Luisa Weiss lived in the divided city during the first three years of her life. After her parents' divorce, she became a frequent traveller, spending part of the year near Boston, part in Germany, always feeling that she never fit in. Later she lived (and ate, and cooked) in Italy, Paris, and New York - but her heart always longed to return to her first home. Leaving behind a stable job and her boyfriend, she risks everything and moves back to Berlin... where she meets a man she might be happy cooking with forever. Still living in Germany, Weiss writes the award-winning blog The Wednesday Chef. If you're a fan of Julie and Julia, put this foodie memoir on your to-be-read menu!"
