Cook, Illustrated: A New Graphic Novel That Live-to-Eat Types Will Savor
Traditionally, graphic novels tell stories of fantasy, heroism, and grand adventures. This is not one of those graphic novels. Lucy Knisley tells her memoir of a foodie life through illustrations and speech bubbles in Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, and even includes a guide to cheese!
Relish contains a series of stories from Knisley's life in the culinary world, from being toted along as a young girl to her mother's job at the first Dean and Deluca, to her own experiences in the Chicago food scene. These are broken up by some of her favorite recipes, lovingly illustrated and annotated in her bright, cartoony style.
