Loved it. Being from Mn originally may have a impact. (grew up in S.Calif). The story of someone who comes from N. Mn, and it is wild and cold. Who ends up cooking in NY City at high end restaurants blew my mind. She goes back and forth from Mn to NY City. Nice boyfriend who becomes her husband. Near Minneapolis they have a rustic house with a luscious garden, fruit trees, and just the gorgeous simple life (if you're 20)... No recipes just great story telling about a interesting family.
