With her passion for fine food and, above all, her appetite for love and life, Gael Greene traces her rise from a Velveeta cocoon in the Midwest to powerful critic of New York magazine. Love and food, foreplay and fork play, haute cuisine and social history--all become inextricably linked as the author lifts the lid on her most provocative subject yet--herself. Along the way there are tales of her saucy erotic adventures and intimate portraits of the culinary icons of our time--Julia Child, André Soltner, James Beard, among others--and revealing dissections of New York's legendary "in" spots, including Elaine's, Le Bernardin, Le Cirque, Odeon, and Balthazar.

About the Author:

GAEL GREENE lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

The grande dame of "foodies," Gael Greene, presents a multi-course audio meal of gourmandizing, lovemaking, food and restaurant trends, and enough gossipy dishing to satisfy even the most inquiring and hungry minds. Greene bookends the recording with her own self-possessed yet mildly mocking tones. The body of the book is delivered by Nancy Travis, who breezes through the material with aplomb, in good-natured collusion with Greene's thirst for experience, whether it's food, sex, fame, or travel. A highlight is her quintessential '70s love affair with a naïve porn star; together they hobnobbed around Europe in search of great food and wine. Travis and Greene serve up a spicy and intelligent life in audio. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
