Book Review - "Take Big Bites" by Linda Ellerbee



I loved this book! In this travel and food memoir Ellerbee is a witty, smart, entertaining writer with the ability to take you with her whether she's on a writer's retreat in a small town in Santorino, befriending a child on the streets of Kabul or eating Beluga caviar with Malcolm Forbes during the Statue of Liberty's centennial. Most chapters conclude with related recipes, which seem *doable*.

The writing is very easy to read, but I found myself reading it slowly because I didn't want the book to end. While she is very funny and sarcastic, her feelings for her children, her friends and her parnter shine through. She is self-effacing and aware of her faults, but still has embraced herself and inspires you to feel good about yourself as well.

I look forward to reading other books by Ellerbee and heartily recommend this book to everyone. I already gave a copy to a friend!
