Nikhaar Kishnani and Deepa Samuel narrate this memoir of food, childhood, and illness. The narrators work together to weave the stories of Fatima Ali and her mother, Farezeh Durrani. The narrators' styles work well as they explore the intergenerational roots of the self-described "brown girl chef" who became a fan favorite on "Top Chef." Kishnani is the voice of the young, talented Ali, who became tragically ill at the age of 29. Samuel portrays the more contemplative Durrani. As their story unfolds in alternating chapters, listeners are treated to a look at how childhood eating habits can help form adult palate preferences. Kishnani and Samuel accurately pronounce the names of the Pakistani dishes that are scattered throughout this ode to family, food, and female independence.
