9780062202611 A vivid memoir of food and family, survival and triumph,Â Love, Loss, and What We AteÂ traces the arc of Padma Lakshmiâ€™s unlikely path from an immigrant childhood to a complicated life in front of the cameraâ€”a tantalizing blend of Ruth Reichlâ€™s Tender at the Bone and Nora Ephronâ€™s Heartburn Long before Padma Lakshmi ever stepped onto a television set, she learned that how we eat is an extension of how we love, how we comfort, how we forge a sense of homeâ€”and how we taste the world as we navigate our way through it. Shuttling between continents as a child, she lived a life of dislocation that would become habit as an adult, never quite at home in the world. And yet, through all her travels, her favorite food remained the simple rice she first ate sitting on the cool floor of her grandmotherâ€™s kitchen in South India. Poignant and surprising,Â Love, Loss, and What We AteÂ is Lakshmiâ€™s extraordinary account of her journey from that humble kitchen, ruled by ferocious and unforgettable women, to the judgesâ€™ table ofÂ Top ChefÂ and beyond. It chronicles the fierce devotion of the remarkable people who shaped her along the way, from her headstrong mother who flouted conservative Indian convention to make a life in New York, to her Brahmin grandfatherâ€”a brilliant engineer with an irrepressible sweet toothâ€”to the man seemingly wrong for her in every way who proved to be her truest ally.Â A memoir rich with sensual prose and punctuated with evocative recipes, it is alive with the scents, tastes, and textures of a life that spans complex geographies both internal and external. Love, Loss, and What We AteÂ is an intimate and unexpected story of food and familyâ€”both the ones we are born to and the ones we createâ€”and their enduring legacies.
