Yes. I know I missed last week. By the time I realize I hadn't posted, it was already Monday night. Duh.
Anyway, I remembered this week primarily because I really enjoyed the top pick. Delicious! by Ruth Reichl tells the story of Wilhelmina (Billie) who, in the course of her unremarkable job at failing Delicious! magazine discovers a cache of letters dating to WWII written by teenager Lulu Swan to the great James Beard. As she delves into the letters and the treasure hunt surrounding them, she makes true friends, comes out of her self-imposed shell, and (yes) meets a man. All of this is wrapped up in a foodie's paean to New York City. Delicious! is exactly that.
