Gail Simmons has written a light hearted account of her journey to become an expert food critic for television and magazines. Throughout Talking With My Mouth Full: My Life as a Professional Eater Ms. Simmons talks about family, friends, and heartbreak while always circling back to how food influenced her life. Her adventures in Spain, traveling in South Africa with her father, culinary school, her job with Jeffrey Steingarten, and her job with Food & Wine magazine gave her a foundation towards being a food critic. Ms. Simmons has worked for and with many of the world's leading culinary experts and she brings all of these experiences to life. An easy and compelling read for anyone who likes food.
