I have been looking forward to this book so much! Lucy Knisley (French Milk, Make Yourself Happy) is one of my favorite cartoonists, and I love reading about food, and this combines them both! Along with a good dose of memoir.
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen (preview pages at link) is due out in April from First Second. It’s described as so:
Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life. Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe — many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy’s original inventions.
It’s a graphic novel just for MEEEEE, and I’m already expecting this to be one of the best books of 2013 (but no pressure…). To promote Relish, Lucy has created a new comic site. At Crave This, she’s posting a daily food drawing. My favorite of the three so far is the apple/brie sandwich with balsamic drizzle… mmmm. How far away is April?
