Bu harika bir hikayenin tüm unsurlarına sahiptir, ancak yazı birinci sınıf değildir. Keşke Michael Pollan bu kitabı yazmış olsaydı ...
Yahudi öfkesi ile ilgileniyorsanız çok iyi.
This book is awesome! It can tell you anything you ever wanted to know about names and places in myths.
Service Included is a plucky first-person account of a recent Barnard graduate’s plunge into the world of four-star restaurant service. I read this while on a bus from Saratoga Springs to Boston with nothing in my satchel but some dried lobes of mango. This was torture, as the author was describing such delicacies as miniature ice cream cones filled with a dollop of salmon mousse. The restaurant is Per Se at the foot of Central Park in New York. When the author and her fellow staff members have a day off, they race through Manhattan to find the best bone marrow on toast with wine marmalade. Or they drive to Vermont to get a first-hand look at an artisanal cheese production. (Most of the urbanites stay well away from the cows.) Their training for working in the restaurant is fascinating and involves a combination of book learning (what’s the difference between Italian and Greek olive oil?) and wine pairings (which Sancerre would you serve with this lobster presentation?) and 18th-century dance lessons to learn to glide gracefully across the dining room floor. There’s romance. Our heroine ends up moving in with the sommelier. But the book satisfies one of my requirements for narratives about women: it doesn’t end in death or marriage.
I love Dune and I am not a big sci-fi fan. It is so amazing that Frank Herbert imagined this whole universe and I am just in awe throughout the book. I think I love this series because there is a lot of politics and character interaction that make it fascinating. And the movie (by David Lynch) is amazing. The Sci-Fi channel miniseries not so much.
