Television personality Padma Lakshmi examines "her journey from [a humble family kitchen], led by ferocious and unforgettable women, to the judges' table of Top Chef and beyond. It chronicles the fierce devotion of the remarkable people who shaped her along the way, from her headstrong mother who flouted conservative Indian convention to make a life in New York, to her Brahmin grandfather--a brilliant engineer with an irrepressible sweet tooth--to the man seemingly wrong for her in every way who proved to be her truest ally"--Amazon.com.… (más)

nonfiction/memoir - cookbook author and food network show host talks about growing up as an immigrant, becoming or trying to become a fashion model, falling in and out of love with Salman Rushdie, struggling with endometriosis (one of those diseases where she assumed her chronic pain was normal but it turned out to be a serious problem), having a baby (and the custody battle that followed), and finding love again before losing him to brain cancer. She also talks a little about her family's Brahman Hindi traditions, and includes a few of her more traditional recipes. ( )

A few years ago when I was still in high school I took a Culinary Arts elective class where I figured I’d learn how to do some pretty plating. There were only about three girls that took the class seriously and I was not one of them. At least I learned how to decorate a cupcake with marshmallow flower petals. Anyway, one of the things the teacher did to fill the time was make us watch Top Chef and see how real chefs would choose spices and whatnot then how they would present the meal to the judges’ table. That was the first time I ever watched the show and saw Padma Lakshmi. I don’t think I’d ever heard of her before then.

When I first picked up this book I didn’t even remember that was her. It was almost a pleasant surprise to find a book about a woman that paved her own way and some recipes to try out. Only recently have I learned of the scandals she got herself into, i.e. entering relationships with much older men, custody battles, etc. but that I still didn’t have an opinion about her until after I read the book.

Lakshmi tells her life story connecting everything back to her love of food. She was a model yet that wasn’t what garnered her lots of attention it was her cookbook. Being a model helped sell the book but that was what got her into writing. Her biggest gig had to do with food and in a way it still is. She’s honest with her experiences and doesn’t shy away from sharing details that, in my opinion, make her look bad. I don’t think we would make good friends but she seems like the kind of person that would make going to a fancy lunch kind of fun. ( )

I'm not a fan of Top chef so i had never heard of this author. Not exactly sure what drew me to this book.

I enjoyed reading about her life and how intertwined it was with food memories, experiences and preparation. I did feel, however that some of the descriptions were a bit to detailed. ( )

Somewhat hard to follow with back and forth between a life event, and then all the different things leading up to it. Not particularly well written. Does us interesting vocabulary. It is memoir of a privileged life. Even though this author admits and apologizes for her selfishness, it is quite evident and unsettling to think many people make decisions like this without considering the consequences to others. ( )
