Food

A Graphic Novel for Foodies

Do you guys ever read graphic novels? I first found out about Lucy Knisley when I read French Milk, her memoir about taking a six-week trip to Paris with her mom. She’s a funny writer, so I was psyched to see that she just came out with a new book, Relish, which chronicles her food adventures, as the daughter of a chef, from New York to Mexico to Venice to Japan. I just ordered it from Amazon and am looking forward to devouring it this weekend.

P.S. Five best graphic novels.

  1. Yes! I just got this book in the mail yesterday (and French Milk too!!)! I managed to get a few pages in during my commute, and I’m hooked. I LOVE graphic novels and it makes me glad to know there are many other women my age who also read them!

    Happy reading!
