The Pat Conroy Cookbook - Abridged

Recipes of My Life: Unabridged Essays

By Pat Conroy
Narrated by Pat Conroy / 2 hours 54 minutes

America's favorite storyteller is back—with a memoir of good food and good company from his beloved South and beyond.

This audiobook 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 I was 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, which passed out Cuban cigars 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 food I have encountered along the way.

Narrated by the author himself, the audiobook is filled with great stories. Stories about people, places, great meals, and a life lived large, by one of the most beloved literary figures of our time.
