Dig your teeth into Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, the new graphic memoir from New York cartoonist Lucy Knisley, out now from our friends at First Second!
Larry had an advance copy behind the counter a few months ago, and I was instantly charmed by Lucy's stories of growing up as the daughter of "foodies." Her love of food propels her around the world, finding the perfect croissants in France and addictive candy in Tokyo.
And perfectly enough, interspersed between these vignettes is recipes from Lucy herself! A comic that helps promote healthy eating? Yes, it's true!
You can get a taste of Relish: My Life in the Kitchen this coming Friday, April 19th at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as Lucy herself stops by for a slideshow and signing at 7:00 PM! And our own Chef Larry Reid will be whipping up some of the dishes from the book, which is something you won't want to miss in itself!
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110. Bon Appétit!
