Places where, while reading this book, my belly laugh drew attention from strangers: the E4 to Friendship Heights, Panera, the back of an Uber, the front of an Uber, the waiting room at my endocrinologist’s office. Let me tell you, dear reader, this book is funny as heck.  In this collection of essays Philpott discusses her life as a genuinely funny person; from getting married, to raising children, to analyzing the clothing choices of celebrities. This delightful and entertaining memoir also prominently features a lobsterman, a snake wedding, and an exploding dog butt. Just trust me and read this book, OK?

From humble beginnings, Chef Kwame Onwuachi rose to be one of the most anticipated restauranteurs before he was 30. Notes from a Young Black Chef: A Memoir is so much more than a rags to riches story. Crediting “years of boot strapping hustle and sheer luck” Kwame changes the trajectory of his life. I would give him more credit, talent and determination than he gives himself. From Nigeria to Louisiana to oil cleanup ships in the Gulf to some of the best fine dining restaurants in NY, you don’t have to be a foodie to love this book!
