Life from Scratch

A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness
Written by Sasha Martin | Narrated by Andi Arndt
Follow Sasha Martin as she revisits her difficult childhood and travels the world by cooking a recipe from every country — and finds the key to her own happiness… This “poignant, heartwarming” memoir (Kirkus Reviews) is sure to make your mouth water!

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Sasha Martin set herself a rather ambitious goal: to cook—and eat—her way around the world with 196 recipes from 196 countries in 196 weeks. Enter Global Table Adventure, a project that proves to be more than just a culinary challenge as Sasha attempts to navigate the vicissitudes of marriage, motherhood, and life’s failures and successes, all inextricably linked to her troubled past.

For Sasha, food and cooking unlock the memories of a difficult childhood and the loss and heartbreak that came with it. She and her brother lived with their mother in Boston before being placed in foster care with a family in Europe. Among the hard moments of her young life, the most difficult occurred when Sasha was just twelve years old—she witnessed her brother’s suicide.

As she mines her past to make sense of her childhood, food allows Sasha to find her own place in the world—and create the home she has been craving her whole life. This is a story about food from around the globe but also about how food can transform us, about being a mother and a wife, about loving the world, and about learning to love ourselves.
