a lovely book, but very disappointed with the black-and-white photosReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 July 2020
It's beautifully written and creates a lovely atmosphere. But this is undermined by the printing of the photographs - why are they not in colour? This gives a miserable austerity-feel to what is actually a life-affirming cookbook/memoir. The pictures give no incentive to make the recipes. Such a shame - this lovely book is really spoiled by this!

Hunting for recipesReviewed in the United States on 21 April 2020
This was a disappointment. The recipes are imbedded in the narrative; I found them difficult to follow. If you are interested in her story, you might want to buy this book, but if you are more into the recipes, skip it.

THIS IS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL READ...Reviewed in the United States on 11 April 2020
I loved absolutely everything about this book. If you are a fan of Alice Waters, then you are, automatically, a fan of her daughter, Fanny Singer. A lovely memoir about growing up in the glow of one of our most revered chefs and founder of Chez Panisse. Frequent visits to France add to the flavor of the author's offerings as she imparts the specifics of an unusual upbringing by a loving and creative "family" of biological relatives and close friends. As a bonus, recipes are included! I can attest to the divine success of roasting a chicken as per the instructions given on page 57. There are beautiful photographs, as well. This book will forever reside within my library of cookbooks.

Always HomeReviewed in the United States on 14 October 2020
I found Fanny Singer's memoir rather boring and strange as it's basically a book that's all about her enormous love for her mother Alice Waters really a love story addressed to her mother which I found very odd.. There was nothing negative about her mother, nothing about her parents divorce, and very little about Fanny's life just how wonderful her Mom is. My husband and I went to Chez Panisse once, even though it had been open for years at that point , it was enormously to difficult to get a reservation. The food was good, but not extraordinary, yes Waters has been involved in various sustainable food programs, honored by Obama and various others, very into farm fresh and organic food, but she was never trained as a chef, and except for Chez P she never had other restaurant experience. Initially it was a hippie enclave, but she managed to get some very good farmers involved and some excellent chefs, but there are plenty of other very restaurants.It almost made me want to gag with Fanny's extremely strong idealization of her mom, and her overpowering love for her mom, is so much that this book is really is love story to Alice Waters, and rather annoying, and yet not dealing with various aspects of Alice's or Fanny life.
