Delicious! by Ruth Reichl

Ruth Reichl, well known for her memoirs centering around food and her famous restaurant reviews, has now written her first novel.

In Delicious!, we meet Billie Breslin, who has left college and her home in Santa Barbara to accept a job in New York at the venerable gourmet food magazine Delicious!  As teens, Billie and her older sister ran a custom cake business called “Cake Sisters”, and she knows her way around a stove.  At Delicious! Billie’s job is fairly low-level public relations position, but she is surrounded by a cast of quirky and colorful characters who, at first, seem to underscore her basic ordinariness.   But she soon proves herself to be no ordinary baker, let alone an ordinary person.  Further, she (like Reichl herself) is blessed with an extraordinarily fine-tuned palate which opens many doors for her. 

The plot takes an interesting twist when the magazine folds and Billie is left behind temporarily in the office to take phone calls.  Alone, in the Delicious!  mansion, Billie makes her way to the library which contains secret room with a fascinating past and a treasure trove of historically significant correspondence. 

This book has charming, lovable characters, great atmosphere, an engaging story, a bit of romance, a plucky heroine who blossoms as she confronts old demons, plenty of humor, and lots and lots of insights to New York’s contemporary food scene.
