FOODIE Gabrielle Hamilton on BLOOD, BONES, & BUTTER


Hamilton's memoir BLOOD BONES & BUTTER, as owner of the restaurant Prune in NY, gains in revelatory insights due to a similar command of language shared by Anthony Bourdain.  This has to be one of the most unconventional of chef memoirs, told with little inflection by the author as she reads words that would make a vegetarian cringe.  It proves that celebrities screaming on Iron Chef can be out-clouted by literate and unpretentious honesty.
