Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by: Lucy Knisley


This graphic novel is written/created by one of my new favorite author/artists.  I can’t wait to get my hand on all of the other graphic novels that she has written.  Lucy is an artist that grew up around food and the cultures of cities that involve food.  She is the epitome of a foodie.  The story was amazing and her illustrations are perfect.  The colors and images are gorgeous and I am now obsessed.

Growing up in Brooklyn during the time when food and food culture started to blossom, Lucy describes her life living with her mother who is a caterer and her father who loved delicious food.  Lucy is an artist but she also understood at an early age that food is an art form as well.  As she moves and travels to other locations, the memories that stay with her involve the food she experienced in each place.  I loved it.

I gave this 5 crowns!
