Memoir of an Omnivore

April 15th, 2009

Moira Hodgson, the restaurant critic for the New York Observer, has written “a delightful memoir,” raves The Washington Times. It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time “is larded not only with accounts of culinary adventures all over the world, but also with actual–and very usable as well as readable–recipes for dishes ranging from English summer pudding to Moroccan lamb tagine with green olives…. She is as hungry for experience of all kinds as she is for food, and her book is infused with true joie de vivre…. Indeed, it is Ms. Hodgson’s lust for life leaping from every page that makes her and this memoir so attractive.”
