The late book editor Judith Jones always had an eye for food—and she used that keen sense to publish some of the biggest names in the twentieth-century culinary world, including Lidia Bastianich, Claudia Roden, James Beard, and Julia Child. In her touching memoir, Jones recounts her lifelong love affair with food, from watching her family's cook prepare meals as a child; to her first trip to Paris, where she experienced the unique French perspective on cuisine; to the comforting ritual of cooking as a shared experience that connects generations and conjures memories of lost loved ones. She includes a hefty recipe section that traces the journey shared within the pages, so you can create marvelous dishes like boudin blanc, sorrel soup, and gooseberry tarts. Mouthwatering and heartwarming, The Tenth Muse reminds us that food is more than just sustenance—it is the bond that brings us together in laughter, love, and life. (SM)
