“The subtitle ‘memoir’ doesn't do justice to this spectacular, sui generis meditation on art, disability, parenting, and travel. It's about more than memory — it's about living in the now and creating the future we want for our children.”Rebekah Shoaf, Boogie Down Books

A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home
“I just finished wiping away my last tear as I close the curtain on From Scratch, a brilliant, compelling memoir. Tembi Locke lost her larger-than-life Italian chef husband at an early age to cancer. The book is a love letter to him as well as to enchanting Sicily and its aromatic, tantalizing food. But more than anything, it is the most memorable and thoughtful gift that her daughter will ever receive. I highly recommend the audio version which is read by the author. From Scratch is one of the best memoirs that I have ever read and one of my top five best books that I read this Summer.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys
My Life Through Food
“Stanley Tucci brings the listener on a sumptuous and mouth-watering tour through his life, guided by his tastebuds and family traditions. As a reader from an Italian American family, many of Tucci's stories were a mirror to my own childhood and extended family, making this audiobook a complete joy. Tucci's epic travels, movie adventures, and bonds with loved ones are all framed by food. Recipes are peppered throughout the book, accompanying memories as a way to relive and process prized and pivotal moments. I'm not remotely a good cook, but I thoroughly loved listening to Tucci divvy out his cooking knowledge. This is not to be missed.”Riona, Books & Books @ The Studios of Key West
