Season to Taste is an aspiring chef's moving account of finding her way--in the kitchen and beyond--after a tragic accident destroys her sense of smell. Molly Birnbaum's remarkable story--written with the good cheer and great charm of popular food writers Laurie Colwin and Ruth Reichl--is destined to stand alongside Julie Powell's Julie and Julia as a classic tale of a cooking life. Season to Taste is sad, funny, joyous, and inspiring.
When a head injury obliterated twenty-two-year-old Molly Birnbaum's sense of smell, it destroyed her dream of becoming a chef. Determined to reawaken her nose, she bravely sets off on a quest to rediscover the scented world. On the way, she seeks out everyone from former poet laureate Robert Pinsky to neuroscientist Oliver Sacks. A moving personal story packed with surprising facts about the senses, Season to Taste brims with the scents of Molly's world--cinnamon, cedarwood, fresh bagels, and lavender--lost and finally found. In Season to Taste, Molly describes an ineffable, but indispensable, layer of life.
