A young Korean-American woman deals with the illness that robs her of her mother and the grief that comes after losing her. Food connects us to where we come from, to our family, and our own history.
This memoir is a celebration of that connecting her to her mother's dishes, to the food they experienced during their trips back to Korea and to Michele's recreation of those dishes in the states. It is a powerful, painful and heartfelt story that shows the connections between mother and daughter, the two cultures that helped shape her and losing her mother to a horrible disease that she was felt powerless to control. It is a story that speaks to all of us. 4 1/2 stars
