Delicious! (Reichl) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Reichl has clearly done a great deal of research, but its results are never deployed in a heavy-handed fashion.... Her New York is a fairy-tale town where beautiful food abounds, purveyed and cooked and grown by passionate cognoscenti; a town where singular eccentrics are surrounded by loving communities of friends who save them when they need it and where a newcomer with the right attitude is sure of success.
Kate Christensen - New York Times

Former New York Times restaurant critic and Gourmet editor Reichl’s first foray into fiction is like an iced white cake. It follows a traditional recipe, it is really sweet, and it is dull.... Though Reichl is a marvelous food writer, the language used here is often cloying.
Publishers Weekly

[T]his first novel is still drenched in food lore and love. Billie Breslin is thrilled to find work at New York's upscale foodie magazine Delicious, then devastated when it is shut down. Left behind to answer the magazine's public relations hotline, she finds a letter that makes her rethink her own life.
Library Journal

Tragedy, war, fairy-tale makeover, trauma resolution, romance and—of course—food are just some of the ingredients in dining critic and celebrated memoirist Reichl's first novel, a bittersweet pudding with some lumps in the batter.... Reichl's first fictional outing is something of a curate's egg—good in parts.
