Book Description:
Laced with delicious secret recipes passed from generation to generation, Consuming Passions is Michael Lee West's delightfully quirky memoir of an adventurous food obsessed life.By watching a multitude of relatives cook, squabble, and carry on tradition, West went from a noncooking sytudent to a full on gourmet of food and words. Throughout, she lends her distinctive humor and often hilarious insights to stories about her trials and tribulations as a Southern woman who became an 'accidental gourmet.'In this irresistible memoir, mothers swing from chandeliers, elderly aunts brew love potions, a South American nymphomaniac stirs up trouble at a Louisiana barbecue joint, and a cabbage eating ghost haunts relatives all in pursuit of good food. Using her own experience and the witticisms of relatives, West fills these pages with insights such as 'Never share men or recipes. Something's bound to get stolen' and 'Live and learn. Die and get food. That's the Southern way.' Wonderfully presented and thouroughly entertaining, this warm and witty work unites West's evocative voice and humor with the uniquely American form of kitchen tales.
