Carol Monda narrates this cookbook by Alice B. Toklas, writer Gertrude Stein's partner, with the humility and respect that her words inspire. Forewords and a publisher's note, narrated by Romy Nordlinger and Mark Bramhall set the listener up for a story peppered with recipes by a woman who saw and noted all the details and rewards life brought her way. Monda portrays Toklas at a comfortable pace in a sensible tone, illuminating moments in Alice and Gertrude Stein's life in France, told through the lens of food. This is not a compilation of Toklas's creations but more a collection of her best-loved recipes and how they came to be in her repertoire.
