Revue de presse

"A Mouthful of Stars makes a cultural leap out beyond the landscape where most cooks stir their pots...this is the future. [Kim is] already where we're headed." (Frances Mayes, author "Under the Tuscan Sun")

"In this joyful and eclectic assortment of recipes and stories, readers can reflect on the flavors, meals, and people who have influenced them, while tasting the metaphorical starts that lead us home."

"Along with the recipes, Kim shares clever variations, poetry, stories about the people who shaped her tastes, and practical advice on cooking."

"The range of flavors is broad and deep..."

 (Louisiana Cooking)

“A Mouthful of Stars will immediately draw you into Kim’s culinary journey through the stories she shares of cooks and how they connect with their food. Get ready to be transformed into her world of Flower and Ice, Down-and-Dirty Rice, Tipsy Melons, and more. A Mouthful of Stars is a tasty and thoughtful combination of Zen and gourmet.” (Sara Foster, author "Sara Foster's Southern Kitchen" and "The Foster's Market Cookbook)

“Kim Sunée is one of the most compelling memoirists writing today, and on top of that, she is a gifted cook. I want to follow her everywhere she goes, reflect on every thought in this moving story, and make a meal of A Mouthful of Stars. I loved being immersed in the context of each recipe, and was impressed by how effortlessly Kim can transport dishes from near, far, and wide to her own kitchen and into ours.” (Martha Rose Shulman, food columnist for the "New York Times" and author "The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking")

"The book is a delicious package, invitingly designed and photographed." (Susan Chang, Boston Globe)

“There is a big difference between traveling to escape and traveling to discover. A Mouthful of Stars is a book that shows the beauty of learning about yourself, the food you eat, the world around you, and the wonderful people at every stop. It’s a poignant voyage through the smart writings and wonderful recipes of Kim Sunée.” (Hugh Acheson, author A New Turn in the South)

“Kim Sunée’s food, life, and writing are the stuff of pure genius. When she cooks, I am hungry, craving not just her food but also the essence of her presence and the mindfulness with which she lives. She has taken recipes from near and far, and served them to us with doses of stylishness, honest ingredients, playful spices, and haunting flavors.” (Suvir Saran, Top Chef Master, author American Masala and Indian Home Cooking)

Bestselling author of Trail of Crumbs and former food editor Kim Sunée offers up her first cookbook. A Mouthful of Stars: A Constellation of Favorite Recipes from My World Travels is a collection of Kim's interpretation of cherished recipes and cooking discoveries from across the globe. From Tuscan crostini di fegatini and Louisiana dirty rice to the flavors of her birth country, South Korea, and favorites from the ten years she spent eating and cooking in Provence and Paris, you'll find A Mouthful of Stars in the cookbook section. However, this book's breadth also extends to travel and food writing. The author's time in many lands and cooking in many kitchens has inspired this beautiful, unique, exotic, and delicious culinary journey.

From the foreword by Frances Mayes:
"Trail of Crumbs established Kim Sunée as an outstanding literary writer, not only about life, but about food. . . . Now, after Kim's brilliant debut memoir, she serves forth A Mouthful of Stars. What an astonishing book. I zoomed through the pages with an increasing feeling of joy. A Mouthful of Stars is original. First, she brings to her recipes zest, energy, and a raucous spirit of fun. Second, she praises, philosophizes, and celebrates . . . She knows that life isn't worth living without friends who know how to eat the heart out of a taco. This sense infuses every bite. How could I help but dash to the kitchen to try Grilled Peaches Wrapped in Prosciutto, Pan-fried Peppers with Coconut and Tamarind, Roasted Cherries with Burrata, and Quick Pickled Fennel. I love her delicate balance of flavors and aromas. Is she alchemist, conjurer, poet, or cook? All of the above. Even the few classic recipes (roast turkey and pizza) include a particular Kim-twist.

A Mouthful of Stars makes a cultural leap out beyond the landscape where most cooks stir their pots. Kim's allegiance is to a global kitchen. A citizen of the world, she's not tied to a particular terrain. This is the future. She's already where we're headed. And the food, paradiso!"

Beautifully written by a beautiful soul. 22 juillet 2014
Par Anna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have to say, this book moves me. From the first time I held it in my hands and shuffled through the pages, I was smitten. I still feel giddy when I turn through the pages and have access to these incredible recipes! Much to my delight, the recipes are very easy to understand. I love to cook, but I am definitely a novice! If you are looking to expand your little cooking wings, I seriously suggest buying this book. Please, if you have any respect for yourself, make the roasted pork tacos... life changing. Better yet, invite a bunch of friends over and soak it up when they say you're the best cook ever!

Here are my favorite recipes from A Mouthful of Stars:
Roasted Pork Tacos (obviously)
Key Lime Pie (take her advice and make the special whipped cream with creme fraiche... you might die and go to heaven)
Dark Chocolate Coconut Cream Layer Cake (I hate cake but I made love to this)
Bottoms Up Rice (I make this at least once a week)
Party Pizza (an absolute BLAST)
Vanilla Custard-Filled Baked Apples (hoooolyyy smokes...)
Harissa (I actually eat this by the spoonful)

I'm making the tacos tonight. It's been almost two weeks and my husband has been begging me for them. I am more than happy to oblige.

In all sincerity, A Mouthful of Stars is simply beautiful. I trust that you will find it as beautiful and inspiring as I have! Do yourself a favor and buy this book. You won't regret it!

A lovely culinary and literary experience 10 juillet 2014
Par alpal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A Mouthful of Stars is a delightful cookbook that has a sparkling personality--something I am not used to seeing in a cookbook. I thoroughly enjoyed it from its whimsical, attractively designed cover, through the charming anecdotes and introductions, delicious recipes and colorful, eclectic page designs, all the way to the lovely back page that looks like something I would frame.

The great recipes and stories are, of course, the reason I would so highly recommend this cookbook. First, I love literature and am an avid reader (including Sunee's first book, Trail of Crumbs, which was a unique and engaging memoir that I would also recommend). I was drawn to the sophisticated prose in this cookbook--this is the writing of someone who cares about language, who cares about taking the reader through a personal culinary journey. The stories don't overwhelm--they are bright anecdotes that combine well with the recipes. This cookbook is not just about utility--it's meant to be read and enjoyed, and the author makes that very easy.

Second, I am not at all what one might call a practiced cook. In fact, I am something of a reluctant cook. However, I found the recipes enticing and easy to follow. Granted, I won't be making them regularly, but not because they don't sound delicious--just because I am lazy. And Sunee's creativity an authority in the kitchen, and her diverse background in the world of food really shine in the recipes she chooses. The recipes include a few unusual offerings that you wouldn't find in the average cookbook (like kachoombar salad or curry leaf cocktail) and also some variations on old favorites (like key lime pie and pork tacos) that are as alluring as they are distinctive. Her recipe for fresh kimchi is the ONLY kimchi I have ever enjoyed--I usually hate kimchi. Her recipe for harissa is flavorful, and it can accompany a variety of dishes (though I love it most with lamb). Her party pizza, true to its name, is very good to share at parties, and it's always a hit. Probably one of my favorites of what I have tried so far has been the cheese and thyme pots de creme. I was skeptical when I first saw the recipe, but it was amazing!

I even like the way the book is organized--not the typical sections of beverages, desserts, vegetables, but all the foods and drinks that go well together shown in tandem. It makes organizing a full meal, from the cocktails to the desserts, simple. It was a good call to coordinate recipes in sections based on region, accompanied by the author's reflections about the food and stories about how she came to love certain flavors and food experiences--yes, experiences. In this book, cooking and eating are joyous events that live through sense memories. I can't recommend this book enough.
Buy one for all your friends and family! Gorgeous, elegant, and delicious, keep it handy for frequent use. 4 août 2014

It's not often you actually enjoy reading a cookbook, but this is a beautiful and enteraining read as well as loaded with recipes that will become your go-to favorites. I think most people can relate to the concept of the elegant narrative, food evokes very strong emotions and memories, we all have our favorites recipes and dishes, and the stories of why they're so special to us. I'm happy to live vicariously through Kim Sunee and her adventures. What's best is to be able to enjoy the treats she experiences along the way.
Everything I've prepared has turned out perfectly, and friends have raved about everything I've prepared. I'm addicted to the chocolate coconut cake, it's become a staple of my community. It's the perfect balance of chocolate and sweet and the coconut custard is really hard to not eat by the spoonfull.. I've gotten so many requests for copies of the book, it's my new go-to gift for all friends/family who love to cook and appreciate a good book.

my new go to cookbook. 28 mai 2014
Par Sera Cuni - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is truly a wonderful cookbook with the added extra of stories of Kim's travel adventures. I had the luck of hosting one of Kim's book signings and was fortunate enough to make many recipes from the book. The Korean fried chicken is truly life changing, it will be a staple for all my summer dinner parties, i will be putting the sauce on everything. There are so many cookbooks out there and this one is very east to follow and anyone can make the recipes. Being a chef this is my new favorite book and i will be using a lot this summer.

You won't be disappointed! 10 juillet 2014
Par Jen McG - Publié sur Amazon.com

I purchased "A Mouthful Of Stars" when it was first published, and I haven't been disappointed. I've since purchased many more for family and friends (thankfully Marie M is not one of them, since she doesn't appreciate a good cookbook when she sees one). To me, the most important thing about a cookbook is the recipes. Do they work? Will I make them regularly? Do they taste good? Will my family like them? I've tried many and I can say YES to every question!

Here are some of my favorite recipes that I've tried so far:

Bottoms Up Rice
Kachoombar salad
Roast Pork Tacos (hint: use cabbage leaves for the shells. Awesome)
Roasted tomatillo-pablano salsa
Spicy Tomato Marmalade
Salad of avocado, papaya and jicama
Avacado-almond ice cream (sounds wierd, but it's so good!)
Key lime pie
Lavender-pepper cornmeal crisps
Eggs baked in cream with olives (decadent, but I couldn't stop eating it!!)
anchoiade (looks disgusting, but it is so amazing!)
Green apple-calvados granita (make this on a hot day. Very refreshing)
Swedish beet and apple salad
BBQ ribs (this is a family favorite. I make it frequently for company now)
Triple layer chocolate-coconut cake (ok, someone else made this, but I tried it. I think I could eat the entire cake)
Vanilla-bean Panna cotta (this is the first time I've made panna cotta. It won't be my last.)
Almond-milk granita (This is my pickiest sons FAVORITE! He's 12 years old, and now knows how to make it by himself)
Salad of Brussels sprouts and kale with pear and pomegranate (made it without pomegranate, and it's still good)

Recipes I want to try:
Buttermilk-cherry-balsamic ice cream
New Orleans BBQ shrimp
Grilled peaches wrapped in prosciutto
Many, many more!

You really can't go wrong! If you want a taste of adventure without leaving your house, get this cookbook. The recipes are fabulous, and this cookbook also has an added bonus: wonderful insights into travel and home. It's also beautifully bound and illustrated, with photos of places Kim Sunee has visited and the people she has met along the way.

This is not a pretentious book as some have assumed. True, she has lived an extraordinary life, but I'm thankful she's shared a glimpse of her journey with us. Kim Sunee explains in the book why it is called "A Mouthful of Stars", but I don't want to spoil it for you. Get the book and find out for yourself.
