My Berlin Kitchen A Love Story (with Recipes) Synopsis

Chocolate and Zucchini. 101 Cookbooks. The Julie/Julia Project. In the early days of food blogs, these were the pioneers whose warmth and recipes turned their creators' kitchens into beloved web destinations. Luisa Weiss was working in New York when she decided to cook her way through her massive recipe collection. The Wednesday Chef, the cooking blog she launched to document her adventures, charmed readers around the world. But Luisa never stopped longing to return to her childhood home in Berlin. A food memoir with recipes, My Berlin Kitchen deliciously chronicles how she finally took the plunge and went across the ocean in search of happiness - only to find love waiting where she least expected it.

My Berlin Kitchen A Love Story (with Recipes) Press Reviews

Luisa Weiss's piquant memoir has charm, heartbreak, family history, and recipes galore. -- Elle

The new Julie & Julia ! It's part cookbook and part memoir; you'll finish a chapter and find yourself in the kitchen following the recipe Weiss includes . . . A transcontinental romance about taking risks in life and in the kitchen. --Marie Claire

For anyone who's ever moved away from home, only to find that nowhere in the world is quite as special, My Berlin Kitchen is a lovely (and delicious-recipe-filled) read. -- Serious Eats

There are love stories, and then there are love stories . Luisa Weiss's falls into the latter category, an honest-to-god tale of love lost, found, and happily ended. And, as a bonus, there's food. Indeed, every page is more delightful and delicious than the one before. Brimming with forty recipes borrowed from Weiss's friends and family and from famous chefs like Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver, then stripped down and perfected by Weiss herself, the book is a mix of travelogue, memoir, cookbook, and a touch of fairytale. -- East Bay Express
