This mixture has led to comparisons with luminary culinary anthropologists who are known for the superior quality of their writing, such as Elizabeth David and Claudia Roden see for instance Kapoor Both these books are authored by journalists who alight on a food-related topic and adopt an immersion research technique — as described and practiced by Lee Gutkind , — in order to uncover these narratives. Flinn moves into the world of food when she is made redundant from her corporate position while on holiday, but she also has a background in writing professionally as a journalist, restaurant critic and food writer.
Flinn Even more established as a professional writer, Bob Spitz, music journalist and author of five books including best-selling biographies of Bob Dylan and The Beatles, sought relief from what reads as a mid-life crisis turning fifty, finishing a lengthy book project, getting divorced, starting and ending a new relationship in a trip to Europe, where he undertook a series of courses in cooking schools in picturesque locations and wrote about the experience.
In relation to this issue, one reviewer raises an important question:.
Donna Lee Brien TEXT Vol 15 No 2
Do you have to like the author of a memoir in order to like the book itself? But the fact that he seems to be self-aware enough to know these things makes this book an enjoyable read. Woollard The professional personas of chef and author can also be enmeshed during the period being described in the memoir.
Well-known food writer and editor, Ruth Reichl, published the first of her three memoirs, Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table in , detailing her early career as both chef and food writer. In late , Australian Matthew Evans, who had been a chef but was then a freelance food writer and decade-long restaurant critic for the Sydney Morning Herald , published a memoir of his years as a chef Evans a and a cookery book Evans b. Evans has now become a multi-platform memoirist — with a television show, Gourmet Farmer with two series to date, shown on SBS in and and related books Evans , a following his latest food-related career move to a farm in rural Tasmania.
Evans b: Hamilton is not only the proprietor of a top eatery but the holder of an MFA in fiction writing. Though Ms. Hamilton, who has an M. Kakutani The long hours at work establishing a business mean, for instance, that while their restaurant and its kitchen is scrupulously clean, their home is rarely that and, public opinion to the contrary, being married to a chef means their refrigerator is usually empty and their dining table has never been used.
Febbroriello also includes examples of the chauvinism that pervades the restaurant industry as, for example, when suppliers ask to speak to her husband regarding business matters, uncomprehending that she is joint owner of their business. Despite the multifaceted labour involved in the contemporary restaurant, it is still the chef who reigns supreme in the public mind. Other professional food memoirs include those by non-cooking restaurant staff. As one reviewer wrote:. Sex thrives in the close quarters and steamy atmosphere of a typical restaurant not to mention with the high-drama personalities who work there.
Park Ginsberg This could be read as the power of the biographical narrative of Keller as super-chef. In contrast to these memoirs by, and about, chefs and their restaurants, there is even a very well received  memoir by the lowliest restaurant employee of all, the dishwasher. Like Dublancia and Powell, Jordan established a readership for his story before his book was released through the popularity of the 16 issues of his zine, Dishwasher. By the end of the memoir, Gill has found happiness through this knowledge.

As food writing of all kinds becomes more visible, food writers are, themselves, becoming increasingly noticeable as authors and are embracing the range of opportunities that arise from their various food writing practices. Most notably, in Garlic and Sapphires , Reichl narrates the experience of disguising herself in wigs and costumes in order to dine anonymously, and so assess the experience offered to the average customer in her review. These three memoirs are alike in their focus on plotting the individual professional journeys of a single food writer against the background of the development of the food media and dining-out culture of their respective countries.
The book narrates how she looked to Californian food writer Marion Cunningham, Chez Panisse chef Alice Waters, her predecessor at the New York Times , Ruth Reichl and television chef Rachael Ray as examples when dealing with personal problems that include alcoholism and drug taking, as well as the difficulties she encountered in coming out as a lesbian. With so many millions of her words in print, it was as if the literary form of the memoir gave Fulton a space in which she could ruminate at length upon the entirety of her professional and personal life.
With memoir a seemingly enduring component of our contemporary literary landscape, the above presents a range of ways to group and discuss memoirs of professional lives in the culinary sphere. It does not aim to provide any kind of definitive or final definitions or categories.
Indeed, while proposing these various sub-groupings, it was instructive to see how fluid they needed to be, as many of the memoirs discussed above can fit into a number of categories. Instead of attempting to proscribe inflexible definitions and categories, this investigation was instead motivated by my belief that finding additional ways of discussing and contextualising food memoir may provide a way into how food memoir writers function and understand themselves as creative professionals.
By , with 17 printings and almost , copies in print, The Liars Club had been in the New York Times paperback bestseller lists for over a year. The book re-entered the lists again in with the release of the film version directed by Alan Parker. Waxman posits that the food memoir can be used in the literature classroom to teach the use of metaphor, satire and erotica, as a basis for exploring how autobiographical texts are constructed and shaped, and to discuss aspects of autobiographical theory, in particular, autoethnography.
