"Consuming Passions" is Michael Lee West''s delightfully quirky memoir of an adventurous life centered around food and family the story of how she went from non-cook to gourmet of words and victuals by watching a multitude of relatives squabble, prepare sumptuous repasts, and carry on honored traditions. Laced with delicious secret recipes passed from generation to generation, West''s irresistible chronicle recalls good times and wild times mothers swinging from chandeliers, elderly aunts brewing up love potions, a South American nymphomaniac stirring up trouble at a Louisiana barbeque joint, and the spooky hauntings of a cabbage-eating ghost all in the pursuit of good dining. Thoroughly entertaining, alive with West''s distinctive humor and sharp, irrepressible insight, here are incomparable American kitchen tales as warm and tasty as freshly baked bread.
