    eBook Darlene Barnes ï Hungry PDF/EPUB Ã ï hungry free, Hungry KindleI liked this progressively better as I went along The irascible authorial tone put me off at first Well at first and at second I ended up firmly on her side but she does come off like a special snowflake sometimes I liked the glimpse inside the frat house and I liked the descriptions of the denizens therein I was less enad with her memoirish bits where she was bitter about the billionaire she cooked for in Texas and the like I really enjoyed reading the interactions between her and the guys enough so that I'm looking forward to reading her blog archives for Pete's sake I suspect that if I met Barnes in real life we'd get on like a house afire

    eBook Darlene Barnes ï Hungry PDF/EPUB Ã ï hungry free, Hungry KindleWhat drew me to Darlene Barnes' memoir Hungry What Eighty Ravenous Guys Taught Me About Life Love and The Power of Good Food was that we had some things in common she had two sons and was getting ready for 'empty nest syndrome' as she sent her last son off to college and she liked to cookBarnes married a man in the Canadian military so they moved from base to base He eventually ended up as an engineer and they lived in Texas She found a job working as a personal chef for a very wealthy and a wee bit crazy and self involved family What she liked best about the job was getting to taste the lunches that the Korean maids brought in Korean vegetable pancakes and chili pas

    eBook Darlene Barnes ï Hungry PDF/EPUB Ã ï hungry free, Hungry KindleI initially chose this book because of the titleI just had to know the story behind it all But as I flew through the pages I was given than just a backstory I was treated to a rare glimpse of fraternity life peppered with tips and tricks on how to be the odd girl out and encompassed by a love of food and the community it creates such as I had never been a part of before Darlene Barnes is bossy but loving tough but fair and above all else she is a woman on a mission Hired to cook lunch and dinner for 50 80 frat brothers five day a week the learning curve was steep and the long term goals occasionally forgotten But Barnes sought to revolutionize frat food in the kitchen that became her kingdom In a world w

    eBook Darlene Barnes ï Hungry PDF/EPUB Ã ï hungry free, Hungry KindleNeeded a feel good memoir and this one certainly was entertaining Darlene Barnes has a strong sense of voice and opinion about food respect and fraternities This is not Animal House with a mix of Bourdain As with most chefs Darlene Barnes is a strong personality not to be messed with She is hired to cook for a frat house and you can tell that there is some misgiving if not downright resentment about doing this in a house full of young men who are fraternity brothers There are some hijinks but what this writer's memoir reveals is how food unites people even when there are those who are averse to good food or food that is good for youDespite her being at times very hard nosed about her kitchen and her role in the house she softens when she writes of certain frat brothers who stood out for their uirks or their mutual respect for their cook

    eBook Darlene Barnes ï Hungry PDF/EPUB Ã ï hungry free, Hungry KindleHaving been in a sorority and having someone cook for us I thought the idea of this memoir was a great one I really liked reading about her experiences cooking for different people and especially for the fraternity guys Where the book falls a bit short is that it could be culled down to talk about the food and specific instances than a step by step chronicling of her life which got old after a whileI voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book all opinions are my own
