Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Luisa Weiss’s piquant memoir has charm, heartbreak, family history, and recipes galore.”
Elle

“The new Julie & Julia! It’s part cookbook and part memoir; you’ll finish a chapter and find yourself in the kitchen following the recipe Weiss includes . . . A transcontinental romance about taking risks in life and in the kitchen.”
—Marie Claire

“For anyone who's ever moved away from home, only to find that nowhere in the world is quite as special, My Berlin Kitchen is a lovely (and delicious-recipe-filled) read.”
Serious Eats

“There are love stories, and then there are love stories. Luisa Weiss’s falls into the latter category, an honest-to-god tale of love lost, found, and happily ended. And, as a bonus, there’s food. Indeed, every page is more delightful and delicious than the one before. Brimming with forty recipes borrowed from Weiss’s friends and family and from famous chefs like Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver, then stripped down and perfected by Weiss herself, the book is a mix of travelogue, memoir, cookbook, and a touch of fairytale.”
East Bay Express

“A mouthwatering tribute to Berlin and a love letter to food, romance and following your heart. . . . Weiss vividly evokes the flavors of German, Italian, and American cuisine. . . . The characters around each table come to life as vibrantly as the food, and Weiss adds helpful hints to the recipes that crown each chapter.”
Shelf Awareness

“A heartwarming (and often mouth-watering) memoir, German-born chef and writer Weiss recounts how . . . through hardship and heartbreak, she found solace among saucepans and stews. . . . Foodies and nonfoodies alike will enjoy chapters brimming with colorful cooking tales and savory recipes.”
Allison Block, Booklist (starred review)

“A thoughtful, earnestly winning memoir.”
Publishers Weekly

“This charming food memoir will prove enjoyable to anyone who loves Laurie Colwin or M.L.K. Fisher.”
Library Journal

“I hope you’re prepared to clear a day or two of your schedule once you open this book, because you’re not going to want to put it down to do anything—well, anything but make a beeline for the kitchen to make a rolled omelet or fake baked beans. Luisa has a way of telling her story that’s nothing short of entrancing.”
—Deb Perelman, creator of Smitten Kitchen

“A beautiful and inspiring story about how we sometimes have to take a leap of faith to follow our life’s passion. I was so charmed by Luisa Weiss’s honesty, vulnerabilities, and beautiful writing—all while craving braised endives. A lovely, remarkable, and delicious tale of the romance of a lifetime.”
—Kathleen Flinn, author of The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry

My Berlin Kitchen is a truly remarkable memoir, told with sensitivity and honesty. Filled with the emotions—and flavors—of a life that spans three cultures and cuisines, this is a book you won't want to put down, except to make its enticing recipes.”
—David Lebovitz, bestselling author of The Sweet Life in Paris

“Luisa Weiss writes with grace and ease about her search for a sense of belonging in My Berlin Kitchen. That she also cooks appealing dishes and writes beautifully about food only adds dimension to her wonderful memoir. You will read with intense delight, cheering her on through heartbreak and triumphs.”
—Amanda Hesser, cofounder of Food52 and author of The Essential New York Times Cookbook and Cooking for Mr. Latte

“Luisa’s heartfelt and engrossing memoir will resonate deeply with anyone who’s ever sensed the profound connection between the food we eat and our sense of home.”
—Clotilde Dusoulier, creator of Chocolate & Zucchini and author of Clotilde’s Edible Adventures in Paris

“Part culinary journal, part love story, My Berlin Kitchen chronicles a young woman’s (often) difficult task of finding her way in the world. With the charm and honesty that is characteristic of her wonderful blog, Luisa Weiss has crafted a book that leaves a deep impression.”
—Heidi Swanson, creator of 101 Cookbooks and bestselling author of Super Natural Cooking --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

Luisa Weiss was born in West Berlin and spent her childhood shuttling back and forth between her Italian mother in Berlin and her American father in Boston. She now lives in Berlin with her husband and son. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Luisa nous raconte non seulement sa vie, son parcours, ses amours avec beaucoup de sincérité mais elle y ajoute des recettes de cuisine toutes plus alléchantes les unes que les autres.
Vivement que ce livre soit traduit en français pour que je l'offre à tout mes amis.

Lovely memoir w/ recipes, fast read 23 septembre 2012
Par Natalie No-CHAN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought this on preorder thinking this was a cookbook, alas it isn't, however it was still very enjoyable.
If you are a follower of the blog, as I am, you are already a fan of her cooking, but I think even for those who aren't cooks will find lots to enjoy in this memoir.

Luisa has lived quite a lot in her years, and takes you on a journey from Berlin, to Boston, New York and Paris and back again, with some extended stays in Italy along the way. Many can relate to her story of being homesick, being unsure of yourself, falling in love and ultimately finding who you are. Along the way she has a nice selection of recipes, which correspond to each time in her life. Her reflections and the enclosed recipes are a vacation in itself, especially with her takes on authentic Italian and German fare.

Interestingly, she does not go very in-depth on her "Love Story", as mentioned in the subtitle. Even though it is a memoir, you only get small glimpses of her personal life and relationship. You learn the object of her affections has an angular face and kind eyes, but that is about it. The true object of affections referenced in the "love story" of the title is Berlin itself, as this is much more a story about finding yourself, less of finding someone. I would have loved more development of the characters, but you get the feel that Luisa is a very private person.

I have not tried the recipes yet, but as she is a cookery writer, I would have liked the recipes to have taken center stage, not tacked on at the end of each chapter as an afterthought. Maybe they should have come at the beginning so that they felt more integral.

A minor point-- I also would have liked some substitutes for Quark in the recipe for Kasekuchen. As someone who has lived in Germany and is familiar with the dish, I know it is difficult to find quark here (as she alludes to and helpfully provides some stockists). What would have really set this apart is to have found an appropriate/passable substitute with ingredients that are readily available for her American readers. Maybe she can try that in the next version.

All in all it is an enjoyable way to pass a Saturday, and the recipes will give you a reason to pick it up again.

great writing, recipes 24 septembre 2012
Par Hannah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Luisa writes beautifully about her life, her family, and her thinking. The writing at moments feels rough - not in an unprofessional way, but in a sort of gritty and true way - she is not stylizing anything or putting a happy sheen on things. My favorite moment in the book comes when she and her dad are struggling a bit in their relationship after she has moved to Berlin and he feels abandoned. We hear Luisa working through it for herself, and we know that eventually she and her dad are okay again - but there is no shiny, happy, immediate "making up" that happens. And it feels so real and uncontrived. I love that she included those sorts of stories, and not just positive forward-moving moments (though there are plenty of those too).

The recipes all look great, and I was startled how much I learned about German cuisine (who knew they were such seasonal eaters in Berlin!). Thanks Luisa for such a thoughtful and clear-voiced look at young adulthood and its challenges, adventures, joys and sorrows. (Also, for what it's worth - I read this in one night!)

Entertaining, although a bit self absorbed 21 octobre 2012
Par G. Nicholson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book, despite the fact at times the author became so bogged down in describing her feelings of unhappiness. I found myself in parts just skimming as quickly as I could, or skipping a few pages ahead as she expounded on how confused and unhappy she was about where she fit in, Berlin, or NYC. Both fabulous places, hard to feel sorry for her having to choose. That being said, she has some fun adventures, and includes some interesting characters throughout the book.

Endearing author, interesting backdrop of trying to find "home" 7 octobre 2012
Par Laurentt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read "My Berlin Kitchen" during our last rainy, chilly weekend. I found the author to be endearing and her story to be interesting and relatable. While reading I couldn't help but highlight sections that I wanted to share with friends- not being able to find leafy greens in Germany, the really cold winter of 2009, an unlikely message from a pigeon in Paris. The recipes are simple enough to make for everyday meals, but tasty enough to make for something special. I especially enjoyed the braised endive and the potato salad recipes. I enjoyed the author's story so much I sent my sister a copy of the book so that she could share in on the fun. I also appreciated seeing somethign that takes place in Berlin, as its often overlooked for the more glamorous Paris, London, or Rome stories.

Didn't hold my attention 17 septembre 2012
Par N. Pearce - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I really wanted to love this book, but I found myself skipping over large chunks just trying to get through it. I feel like I have read this book before, so many of the stories are found in the other hundreds of food memoires that have been written in the last few years. I love the author's blog, but her voice just doesn't stand out in this book.
