My critique of the language of food
A cookbook evokes Anne’s memories.
Review The language of food Going to be complicated. I just want to say that it’s absolutely fantastic and everyone should buy it and read it over and over again, but I’m afraid it will not really explain why I adore it enough. Abundant, intangible, quiet The language of food He told a book to savor: to savor the excellent prose of Annabel Abbas, her delightful descriptions and the sheer joy of such a beautifully written narrative.
The plot is relatively simple, though steeped in extremely meticulous historical research and combined with the imagination and the glorious and influential kind of prose that most authors can only aspire to. Rich in details and descriptions, there is no unnecessary word, so instead of feeling planned and bloated (sorry for the food metaphor), The language of food It is a delight for the reader like any of the mouth-watering flavors that dance in Eliza Van’s palate. It’s just wonderful.
I like the fact that both Where and Eliza have first-person narratives, which gives them equal status in the book despite their different social status, because The language of food It is a feminist text, which describes the role of women in history and gives them a voice in a huge enough way. The treatment of women in society, marriage, motherhood, family, social status, connection, friendship and so on, all revolve around this story, so until I read the last entry by Anne I was excited, uplifted and so fascinated by the story that it was a surprise to find myself in the twenty-first century . The intense relationship between Anne and Eliza is lively and compelling, so the prosaic setting of the kitchen in which much of the action takes place feels completely authentic.
Magnificent, absolutely sweeping and mesmerizing, I loved The language of food. As I neared the end I read more and more slowly because I did not want the experience of life alongside Eliza Van to end. Maybe it’s just January, but The language of food Going to be hard to beat as my yearbook. If you’ve only read one book this year, make sure The language of food.
