Join the Tasty Reads, a book group for readers who love to cook, for a lunchtime book discussion at the Peter White Public Library on Monday, November 19 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm in the library’s Shiras Room. This month’s book selection is “My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time” by Gesine Bullock-Prado.
As head of her celebrity sister’s production company, the author had a closet full of designer clothes and the ear of all the influential studio heads, but she was miserable. The only solace she found was in her secret hobby: baking. With every sugary, buttery confection to emerge from her oven, Gesine took one step away from her glittery, empty existence—and one step closer to her true destiny. Before long, she and her husband left the trappings of their Hollywood lifestyle behind, ending up in Vermont, where they started the gem known as Gesine Confectionary. They never looked back.
This memoir follows Gesine’s journey from sugar-obsessed child to miserable, awkward Hollywood insider to reluctant master baker. Chock-full of eccentric characters, beautifully detailed descriptions of her baking process, ceaselessly funny renditions of Hollywood nonsense, and recipes, the ingredients of her story will appeal to anyone who has ever considered leaving the life they know and completely starting over.
Participants are invited enjoy sample recipes from the book and new members are always welcome. The Tasty Reads meets the third Monday of each month at the library and there is no admission charge. For more information visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4315.
