dishes of his beloved South as well as the cuisine he has savored in
places as far away from home as Paris, Rome, and San Francisco.
Each chapter opens with a story told with the inimitable brio of the author.
We see Conroy in New Orleans celebrating his triumphant novel The
Prince of Tides at a new restaurant where there is a contretemps with its
hardworking young owner/chefâ€”years later he discovered the earnest
young chef was none other than Emeril Lagasse; we accompany Pat and
his wife on their honeymoon in Italy and wander with him, wonderstruck,
through the markets of Umbria and Rome; we learn how a dinner with his
fighter-pilot father was preceded by the Great Santini himself acting out a
perilous night flight that would become the last chapters of one of his sonâ€™s
most beloved novels. These tales and more are followed by corresponding
recipesâ€”from Breakfast Shrimp and Grits and Sweet Potato Rolls to
Pappardelle with Prosciutto and Chestnuts and Beefsteak Florentine to
Peppered Peaches and Creme Brulee. A master storyteller and passionate
cook, Conroy believes that â€śA recipe is a story that ends with a good meal.â€ť
â€śThis book is the story of my life as it relates to the subject of food. It is my
autobiography in food and meals and restaurants and countries far and
near. Let me take you to a restaurant on the Left Bank of Paris that I found
when writing The Lords of Discipline. There are meals I ate in Rome while
writing The Prince of Tides that ache in my memory when I resurrect them.
There is a shrimp dish I ate in an elegant English restaurant, where Cuban
cigars were passed out to all the gentlemen in the room after dinner, that I
can taste on my palate as I write this. There is barbecue and its variations
in the South, and the subject is a holy one to me. I write of truffles in the
Dordogne Valley in France, cilantro in Bangkok, catfish in Alabama,
scuppernong in South Carolina, Chinese food from my years in San
Francisco, and white asparagus from the first meal my agent took me to in
New York City. Let me tell you about the fabulous things I have eaten in
my life, the story of the food I have encountered along the way. . . â€ť
Personal Review: The Pat Conroy Cookbook: Recipes and
Stories of My Life by Pat Conroy
Mr. Conroy's "Recipes Of My Life" is a work of art. He has a very pleasant
way of introducing the recipes he and Mrs. Pollak include.
I just finnished reading it again and found it every bit as entertaining this
time as I did the first. His anecdotes about Emril, Stitt, Bach, bring joie
de'vivre to this book.
I throughly enjoyed reading this again and whether you are a cook, chef, or
like the story of the cooking of his Mother you will enjoy this tome. Five
hundred Fridays of fish sticks is just too true. I love giving this as a gift.
I would like to know where one can find a good Scuppernog Wine.
