Filled with compelling, humorous and heart-wrenching stories, this book will teach you a thing or two about self-discovery.
The Measure of My Powers is an incredibly entertaining read about Jackie Kai Ellis's journey of self-discovery through food and travel. Included are recipes that reflect certain moments in the author's life: dumplings in memory of her grandmother; ricotta gnocchi from an Italian sojourn; and a buttery croissant perfected in Paris and then sold at her successful Vancouver bakery, Beaucoup.
Ellis's stories are at once compelling, humorous and heart-wrenching, and also have beautiful insights into relationships, mental health and self-love.
The Measure of My Powers (Appetite) by Jackie Kai Ellis, $25.
