Trail of Crumbs


“But it seems that I can tackle the most esoteric of recipes, the most elusive puff pastry, as long as I do not have to count the empty layers of loneliness building up inside.”

― Kim Sunée

The concept of this book held so much promise. Kim grew up in New Orleans having been adopted from Korea. Later in life she follows a relationship and moves to France, making her identity one marked by an unusual mix of places that have one particular thing in common… really good food.

This was a memoir intertwined with recipes and I loved the concept. I think the book itself started out well, but began to wane towards the end. Still, there were some great recipes in here, and to date this book is responsible for the best red beans and rice I’ve ever made.
