When I had finished devouring this book by my friend Ingrid Croce-Rock, I wasn’t sure what had happened. It’s part story, party history, part recipe, part restaurant, and part Ingrid. I listened, I laughed, I cried, and I got the munchies – all within a short space of time. There were moments when I was riveted and wanting more and moments when I drifted between her life and my own, where they touched or ran together side by side through our common traditions. I felt my tears fall softly as details unfolded of our shared sorrows.
This isn’t literature, this is life. Between each triumph and through every agony…you eat. This is the secret of life – to devour it all with friends and family. And pass on to each succeeding generation the traditions and recipes that make life worth sharing.
- Arlo Guthrie
