Review

Every serious food person knows that Paula Wolfert changed our world, but in this book we learn what a fascinating time she had while she was doing it. Part biography, part cookbook, part history, Unforgettable introduces our greatest cookbook writer to the wider audience she deserves. There has never been a book quite like this one.―Ruth Reichl

Unforgettable is the story of the exacting, passionate, genuine, driven and indefatigable Paula Wolfert, the ultimate expert on the cooking of the Mediterranean. Emily Kaiser Thelin's well-written and poignant narrative recounts the tale of this true pioneer of American culinary history.―Jacques Pepin

Unforgettable is a brilliant summation of the resilience, exuberance, and expertise that we know and love of Paula Wolfert.―Mario Batali

All recipes are, in some way, an exploration of the link between food and memory. We cook the food we remember loving and, in so doing, make new connections and bonds. The amount of love, through food, Paula has given so many over the years makes this biography-cum-cookbook a truly wonderful project.―Yotam Ottolenghi

We're all truly indebted to Emily Kaiser Thelin, Eric Wolfinger, Andrea Nguyen, and Toni Tajima for capturing these beautiful, inspiring, and very important memories of Paula's life and travels.―April Bloomfield --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
