Product Details


“Poignant, heartwarming and generously filled with delicious recipes.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Food had long provided the few happy moments in Martin’s life…These moments may not be enough to satiate the appetite of foodie readers who are looking for lush bite-by-bite writing, but there is plenty here to engross memoir lovers.” -Publisher’s Weekly  

“Martin peppers this memoir with recipes reflective of her life’s circumstances of the moment, from stuffed artichokes to apple pie. Her assured prose endows this narrative of an atypical upbringing with both immediacy and poignancy. ” – Booklist  

“Many readers will relate to the ways that Life from Scratch connects food and family.” –Shelf Awareness

“Sasha Martin intended to publish what’s called a stunt memoir….Thankfully, her memoir, Life From Scratch is not that book. It has more in common with The Glass Castle than it does with 300 Sandwiches: A Multilayered Love Story . . . with Recipes, though it does include recipes.” —Washington Post

“While a taste of food from around the world would have been delicious enough, the memoir that Martin ultimately wrote is far more satisfying.” –Tulsa Kids 

“Sasha Martin’s beautiful memoir-cum-cookbook… makes for ideal summer escapism. Martin’s memoir will find resonance in anyone who’s found that the art of cooking can be as much an emotional experience as a sensory one.” –
