rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was so impressed by The School of Essential Ingredients. Erica Bauermeister shows equal passion for the English language and food by painting beautiful pictures of food through creative and engaging language. The School of Essential Ingredients is a collection of short stories weaved around a Monday night cooking class. Each story focuses on a cooking class student and their life delving deep into their past or present situation. Erica Bauermeister manages to evoke a wide range of emotions. The students find they learn some of life's most important messages through the medium of food. The School of Essential Ingredients is delightfully charming even through stories of heartbreak.
