Graphic artist Lucy Knisley is known for her webcomics and her graphic memoirs (including her debut: French Milk).
Her newest title is a chronological account of some of the seminal moments her life -- with food as the focal point.
The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, Knisley has been immersed in food culture since birth, and in this memoir she portrays in vibrantly colored illustrations how tastes have been central in her memories.
Her relationship with food is refreshing, as she enjoys gourmet cuisine and fast-food cheeseburgers with equal passion, and her illustrations make both look absolutely delicious.
Each chapter presents a specific moment in her life, and each includes an illustrated recipe, as shown below.
Readers who enjoy Relish might also enjoy Knisley's earlier works French Milk and Radiator Days, or the graphic memoirs of Alison Bechdel or Marjane Satrapi.
