Stuffed: Adventures of a Restaurant Family

Stuffed: Adventures of a Restaurant Family

Patricia Volk


Patricia Volk’s scrumptious memoir shall we us into her enormous, loopy, loving, pleased, infuriating and beautiful kin, the place you’re by no means simply hungry–your ravenous to dying, and you’re by no means simply full–you’re crammed. Volk’s relations fed big apple urban for 100 years, from 1888 whilst her great-grandfather brought pastrami to the United States till 1988, whilst her father closed his garment heart eating place. All alongside, meals was once pretty well on the heart in their lives. yet as seductively as Volk inspires the foodstuff, Stuffed is at middle a paean to her quirky, brilliant kin: her grandmother with the “best legs in Atlantic City”; her grandfather, who invented the wrecking ball; her larger-than-life father, who sculpted snow thrones while different dads have been suffering from snowmen. Writing with nice freshness and humor, Patricia Volk will go away you hungering to sit to dinner together with her strong family–both for the spectacle and for the nutrition.
