“Long after I finished reading this delicious memoir, I could still taste the flavors brought to mind by a story ripe with lush details, bracing wit, and bold pleasures. Embarking on Syverson’s journey is like traveling the world with a treasured friend. This is an experience to be savored.”

~ Amy Rogers, author of Hungry for Home: Stories of Food from Across the Carolinas; publisher, Novello Festival Press
