Synopsis

Written with the same flair and color as West's highly praised novels, Consuming Passions chronicles the author's love affair with food. West lends her warm, distinctive humor and often hilarious insights to the stories of her trials and tribulations as a Southern woman who becomes an "accidental gourmet".

This wonderfully entertaining volume seamlessly weaves West's evocative voice and humor to the uniquely American form of kitchen tales. Consuming Passions is rich with gracious Southern hospitality and the delicacies that accompany it, including the recipes that have passed through generations of the author's family. This tantalizing read will satisfy the cravings of West's ever-increasing fan base as well as everyone who loved Laurie Colwin, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
