Really a 35 star book I enjoyed reading about most of what Molly and her husband went through in order to open up their Seattle based pizza restaurant Delancey One part I wasn t really interested in was the building of the special oven it was kind of slow to me so I ended up skipping most of it I loved hearing about the food though and there are some delicious sounding recipes included one at the end of each chapter I ended up feeling hungry while reading and now have a big craving for pizza

I absolutely loved My Korean Deli Risking It All for a Convenience Store by Ben Ryder Howe So I was looking forward to this read that promised a similar riveting story about a young couple whose marriage is stretched almost to the breaking point when they decide to open a pizzeriaBut sadly the narrative is bland and gets bogged down in details It starts out great as the author sketches out her personality and that of her hobby loving but usually hobby abandoning husband But soon after her husband announces his intention to open a pizzeria the book descends into long passages about learning to make pizza scouting for a location and opening and running a restaurant The author obviously a blogger includes very few viewpoints from anyone else including her husband She talks about her husband but scenes and dialog including him are sparse almost nonexistent except for one dramatic moment when he wants to back outI was hoping for of these moments but like many blogs turned books the book has little narrative drive and no story arc Editors should have had her turn some of the narrative into scenes and dialog to give the story energy the old adage show don t tell should be every storyteller s goal The author does describe the train wreck the restaurant almost made of her life but it s buried in all the verbiage about restaurant ownership If you re interested in what it s like to open a restaurant go for it But if you re looking for a compelling story of the twists and turns of a young marriage this isn t it I would like to read the author s first book though the bestselling A Homemade Life Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table which got great reviews

After loving Molly Wizenberg s A Homemade Life I opened to the first page of Delancey with high expectations Yet about halfway through the memoir disappointment crept in Wizenberg s writing style had not changed nor had the format of her memoir short story followed by a recipe two elements that I enjoyed in A Homemade Life Yet the depth of feeling had While A Homemade Life is about food yes it s about her relationships with other people her parents boyfriends friends and eventually Brandon the man who would become her husband and how those relationships helped her evolve into her grown up self Delancey on the other hand is about opening a restaurant There are brief moments detailing her relationship with Brandon mostly the strained tense ones their friends and the staff of Delancey but to me it felt that what I loved so much about A Homemade Life was largely goneI know that it is not fair to rate Delancey in comparison to its predecessor but I cannot separate the two in my mind Delancey is still a worthwhile read and there are several recipes from the memoir that I am eager to try But will I reread it cover to cover again Probably not
