Food expert Howard whips up a collection of essays that is often delectable, sometimes heartbreaking, but ultimately brimming with hope. Each essay features someone with whom she fosters a connection on her journey through the world of food, focusing primarily on women who stake their claim in an industry that is historically a boys club. As we learn about different types of wine and cheese and travel from Vermont to France, a shared intimacy between reader and author deepens with each page turn. This is thanks to Howard's vulnerable prose and her willingness to lean into difficult topics. There is a healing in her sharing her experience with an eating disorder and her ongoing recovery process. "The thing about the eating disorder voice is that, left to marinate in the confines of my brain, it grows in ferocity and power. But when I share it, it loses its teeth." Plenty is the perfect read for anyone looking to learn more about food as well as reflect on the trials and celebrations of the human experience. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
