Review: THE RECIPE CLUB by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel

Shellie from Layers of Thought reviewed The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is a “sweet” tale, of two friends and their platonic love for each other. (I do want to mention that one small ingredient of the book is LGBT giving it some interest, complications, and intrigue). As the letters catalog their lives, conflicts, emotional drama, and life experiences during the 1960’s and 70’s, there is invariably some historical content too.

The hard bound edition that I read is printed on lovely thick pages. The recipes have artsy doodles and interesting set ups appropriate for each event and the ages of the girls/women. All this makes it a beautiful and physically heavy book. What is the best part about this book is that the recipes are amazing. They are full fat, comfort food and drinks, all of which are associated with the life events happening for each of the characters.  Definitely fun!
