Product Description

Here is the story of a rich and passionate life of longing told in culinary terms. Kirk has filled this memoir with food stories and includes recipes for the foods that shaped her experience, from the fired okra she ate with her Arkansas grandparents to the hor d'oeuvres of her parents' 1960s suburban cocktail parties to the "real" German potato salad she encountered in her travels around the globe. "Starting from Scratch" beckons the reader to appreciate food, and the rest of life, in a deeper, more immediate way- not merely to experience the world, but to taste it. 288 pages, hardcover from Thomas Nelson.

Publisher's Description

A captivating memoir from a cook who's traveled across the globe cooking, tasting, and enjoying good food.

Patty Kirk has always loved food: eating it, cooking it, sharing it, talking about it. At six, she scrambled the last of the family's vacation provisions over the camp fire and concocted a delicacy-eggs with bacon and onions. Overnight she became the family cook and discovered a lifelong passion for cooking that accompanied her through decades of roaming and finally to the farm in Oklahoma where she now lives. Starting from Scratch narrates Kirk's wanderings in the U.S. and abroad from a culinary perspective, sounding the spiritual, political, and emotional depths of Brillat-Savarin's famous observation, "Tell me what you eat; I'll tell you who you are." In this candid and engaging food memoir---complete with recipes!---good food beckons from the past as well as the future: surrounding us, eluding us, drawing us, defining us.
