Season to Taste is an aspiring chef's moving account of finding her way--in the kitchen and beyond--after a tragic accident destroys her sense of smell. Molly Birnbaum's remarkable story--written with the good cheer and great charm of popular food writers Laurie Colwin and Ruth Reichl--is destined to stand alongside Julie Powell's Julie and Julia as a classic tale of a cooking life. Season to Taste is sad, funny, joyous, and inspiring.
