Publisher's Summary

A cookbook and culinary memoir about growing up as the daughter of revered chef/restaurateur Alice Waters: a story of food, family, and the need for beauty in all aspects of life.

In this extraordinarily intimate portrait of her mother - and herself - Fanny Singer, daughter of food icon and activist Alice Waters, chronicles a unique world of food, wine, and travel; a world filled with colorful characters, mouth-watering traditions, and sumptuous feasts. Across dozens of vignettes with accompanying recipes, she shares the story of her own culinary coming of age and reveals a side of her legendary mother that has never been seen before. A charming, smart translation of Alice Waters' ideals and attitudes about food for a new generation, Always Home is a loving, often funny, unsentimental, and exquisitely written look at a life defined in so many ways by food, as well as the bond between mother and daughter.

bad reader

This book is read by the author. She is not a professional reader and it shows. She basically reads in an uninflected monotone. Intermittently she seems to decide that a given passage needs some emotion or emphasis and then she dials some in. But otherwise it's just as if she's reading a list of words from a page, and as rapidly as she can. The publisher would have done better insisting that a professional reader do the job. There are so many good ones, and then this book could have been done justice.

Not Great Voice

I returned this title after 10 minutes, because the author’s voice was really hard for me to enjoy. Heavy vocal fry.

I was looking forward to this book, so will buy the paper copy and read it instead.
