From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home Free Audiobook Download by Tembi Locke

As a young woman of mixed heritage, Tembi Locke has been raised by her mother on a strict diet of Sicilian food, Mediterranean values and faith. As a professional chef, she's seen Sicily through many different lenses - from an exciting new tourist attraction to a rich cultural melting pot. In From Scratch, Locke shares her personal story of finding the love of her life in Italy and returning to America with him to build their dream home in the California countryside.

This is a memoir of love, Sicily, and finding home. Tembi Locke tells the story of her life from her childhood in Washington state, to living in New York City, to becoming a housekeeper for an elderly Sicilian couple who lived on a small mountain in Italy. In this book, she describes the unconditional love that she encountered throughout her life, and how it led her to find peace and comfort in old age.

In Tembi Locke's audiobook "From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home" she tells the story of how she moved to Sicily and fell in love with the culture and people. She goes on to tell her story of conflict between finding a sense of home as a foreigner in an area where they don't speak English and having to leave again. She writes about her struggle with chronic illness and PTSD which arose from being sexually assaulted while living in Sicily.

The memoir, From Scratch, tells of a young woman's journey to find home. It begins with the author's childhood in South Africa, where she lived on a farm. After her father died when she was four years old, her mother moved her family to what she thought would be a better life in America. Seven years later, they arrived in New York City with everything they owned and nothing else. The author knew that she didn't know how to live there, so she began to explore the city and found herself on the streets of Sicily. She learned that love could be found anywhere in this world if you're willing to open up your heart and look for it."

In From Scratch, Tembi Locke recounts her experiences of growing up an American in Sicily, where she and her family relocated for a year. In the process, she meets many different people--Italian and Sicilian alike--and learns about themselves as well as their culture. Her love story also emerges from the book, which is equally as fascinating.

From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home is a memoir that has been on my list for awhile. It’s a beautiful book about the author's personal journey to find her home in life. In this book Tembi shares her story of how she grew up in New York City with an Italian father, African American mother, and of course Italian food. She also shares how she found herself through food and cooking as a means of escaping her chaotic family.
