Blood, Bones & Butter is a memoir by a chef with an interesting background. Hamilton's childhood and marriage are laid out for the reader, and she makes no effort to show herself in a favorable light. I was impressed with the author's forthrightness, but I confess that I wish the book had more restaurant and cooking stories and less weird marriage tales. I don't think that it should have been different though - just maybe that the marketing of this book wasn't quite right. Or maybe I just didn't pay the right kind of attention. 5/10.
