Basically I thought I would be mindlessly entertained for a few hours of reading and that would be it. (just so we’re clear I love chick lit, especially in between reading a two “heavier” books) Instead this book made me think of the complicated body image issues most.

      The Appetites of Girls by Pamela Moses was slightly hard to get into at first due to the structure. The women are barely introduced as women in their late 20’s or early 30’s, in a short prologue, and then their individual stories are told in alternating chapters.   Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites--dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain's opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father /5().
