Charlotte au Chocolat by Charlotte Silver.. Behind the scenes in the restaurant biz, seen from a child’s point of view, yet with enough of the adult’s wry humor to make this a great food memoir, Silver knows from pigs knuckles and chocolate. Exceptional.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Child of artist-restauranteurs, Silver recalls a girlhood filled with pink linens, candied violets, and constant threat of financial ruin. But it’s her ode to her quirky, dazzling mom that makes the dish."

Good Housekeeping

"Charlotte Silver has written a love song to a remarkable restaurant and a vanished world. I devoured these pages with the same enthusiasm as the author brings to pheasant’s legs and steak tartare on toast."

Margot Livesey
