Hungry by Darlene Barnes

Darlene Barnes É 0 Characters

I initially chose this book because of the titleI just had to know the story behind it all But as I flew through the pages I was given than just a backstory I was treated to a are glimpse of fraternity life peppered with tips and tricks on how to be the odd girl out and encompassed by a love of food and the community it creates such as I had never been a part of before Darlene Barnes is bossy but loving tough but fair and above all else she is a woman on a mi Having been in a sorority and having someone cook for us I thought the idea of this memoir was a great one I eally liked eading about her experiences cooking for different people and especially for the fraternity guys Where the book falls a bit short is that it could be culled down to talk about the food and specific instances than a step by step chronicling of her life which got old after a whileI voluntarily eviewed a complimentary copy of this book all opinions are my own An interesting look inside a Frat House but the story was definitely mostly about Darlene ather than the est of the people around her What drew me to Darlene Barnes memoir Hungry What Eighty Ravenous Guys Taught Me About Life Love and The Power of Good Food was that we had some things in common she had two sons and was getting eady for empty nest syndrome as she sent her last son off to college and she liked to cookBarnes married a man in the Canadian military so they moved from base to base He eventually ended up as an engineer and they lived in Texas She found a job working as a personal chef for a wealthy and a bit crazy and self involved family What she liked best about the job was getting to taste the lunches that the Korean maids brought in Korean vegetable pancakes and chili pastes and the fresh corn tortilla tacos the gardeners ate Her wealthy clients insisted on Kraft cheese singles and fat free yogurts not exactly healthy or tastyWhen her husband took a job with Microsoft in Seattle Barnes applied for a job as a cook at a fraternity house at the University of Washington Her prickly personality and penchant for cursing earned her a eputation as someone not to be messed with a definite plus with the frat members and the vendors who were not accustomed to a frat cook who uestioned what they were sellingBarnes thought the job as a cook for a fraternity to be a puzzling occupation like circus clown or spy But she was told she would have the ability to create her own menus within the budget estraints given and to make the job whatever she thought it should beShe knew how to deal with young men as she had two of her own but there were moments that gave her pause Stepping over broken glass on the way to basement storage and having to install a childproof device on the freezer after finding it unplugged three times made her apoplectic But the espect and kindness the young men showed her convinced her she had done the ight thing in taking the jobBarnes was appalled at the kind of food that the men were used to they had grown up on Pop Tarts and Kraft mac and cheese Still they were willing to give her food a try Instead of the frozen meatballs and fajitas the last cook served Barnes made hers fresh Her goal was to get them to eat healthier to try new things like kiwi fruitShe decided that it was easy to make salad dressing from scratch so She Stopped Buying Bottled stopped buying bottled simple decision led her to uestion what else she could make from scratch like soups salsa and Sauces From There She From there she a uest to use as much locally produced foods as possible From fruits and vegetables to beef and chicken Barnes uestioned her vendors and sought out the best food she could buy for the guysThe food service company sales eps were not as ec. Newly arrived in Seattle Darlene Barnes stumbles on a job ad for a cook at the Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity on the University of Washington campus a prospect most serious food professionals would automatically eject But Barnes envisions something other than kegs and corn dogs; she sees an opportunity to bring fresh eal food to an audience accustomed to Asian Surprise and other unidentifiable casseroles dropped off by a ca. ,
Eptive as the frat guys They often found Barnes to be argumentative and a general pain compared to the other fraternity and sorority cooks who just served packaged or frozen foods but some grew to espect her way of thinkingBarnes takes us inside the fraternity and introduces us to some of the guys
She Talks About The Ones 
talks about the ones likes and the few she felt were lazy She watched as they pulled together during a few tragedies and answered their freuent text messages with cooking uestions even as she was on vacation in Istanbul with her husband Her elationship with the guys is touching and sweet even though she plans to uit every single summerI enjoyed Hungry immensely Barnes cranky honest personality shines through Her decision to make frat food tastier and healthier inspired me to be mindful of what I m buying and preparing for my family I felt like I was ight there in the frat kitchen with her and if the Food Network is smart they will snap her up and give her a show I d watch in a heartbeatI also like that there are many ecipes throughout the book and I m going to try most of them starting with Blueberry Cornbread now that blueberries are in season See I learned something already Needed a feel good memoir and this one certainly was entertaining Darlene Barnes has a strong sense of voice and opinion about food espect and fraternities This is not Animal House with a mix of Bourdain As with most chefs Darlene Barnes is a strong personality not is not Animal House with a mix of Bourdain As with most chefs Darlene Barnes is a strong personality not be messed with She is hired to cook for a frat house and you can tell that there is some misgiving if not downright esentment about doing this in a house full of young men who are fraternity brothers There are some hijinks but what this writer s memoir eveals is how food unites people even when there are those who are averse to good food or food that is good for youDespite her being at times very hard nosed about her kitchen and her ole in the house she softens when she writes of certain frat brothers who stood out for their uirks or their mutual espect for their cook There are a few times when tragedy hits and it hits everyone hardI could elate strongly to this woman s uest to feed her charges They are her employers so to speak but she also feels a esponsibility to contribute to their food education Very much like what I try to do when I am in charge of our school s nutrition programA good summer ead for those of us who don t care for spy novels of mystery books This book was probably of a 35 on the star scale but I m a sucker for memoirs You can feel Barnes passion through her eflections she eally loved these boys and it eminded me of how I feel about my students It was a very uick ead if not a little disjointed I my students It was a very uick ead if not a little disjointed I this progressively better as I went along The irascible authorial tone put me off at first Well at first and at second I ended up firmly on her side but she does come off like a special snowflake sometimes I liked the glimpse inside the frat house and I liked the descriptions of the denizens therein I was less enad with her memoirish bits where she was bitter about the billionaire she cooked for in Texas and the like I eally enjoyed eading the interactions between her and the guys enough so that I m looking forward to eading her blog archives for Pete s sake I suspect that if I met Barnes in eal life we d get on like a house afire Barnes writes a memoir that eads like an extended outline than a memoir Barnes covers her childhood her experience working for a Texas Billionaire and her time as a chef in the Fraternity house in Seattle While all of these events are mentioned in a scrambled pattern there is very little detail The only thing the author makes clear through epetition is that she is Tering service And she also sees a chance to einvent herself by turning a maligned job into meaningful work of her own creation I was the new girl and didn't know or care about the ules Naively expecting a universally appreciative audience Barnes finds a exasperatingly challenging environment The kitchen is nasty the basement is scary and the customers are not always cooperative Undaunted she gives as good as she gets Self proclaimed difficult person to work with I wanted detail on what she cooked with the organic and local ingredients she worked so hard to procure personal details or even descriptions to help form some mental image of the people she worked with for so many years So much telling and so little showing left me feeling as if I d ead a eport ather than a memoir Interesting book about a woman who cooked meals for a frat house at the University of Washington Recipes are included She made it her mission to cook fresh healthy meals and demand these fresh ingredients from food suppliers before it was popular Her stories about the young men in the house were amusing and touching Hungry What Eighty Ravenous Guys Taught Me about Life Love and the Power of Good Food is a memoir written by Darlene Barnes Darlene has always loved food and loved to cook Some of her earliest memories are of the good fresh food eaten at her grandparent s home and to this day she feels strongly about buying locally and fresh I m not sure she ever imagined herself as the chef at the fraternity Alpha Sigma Phi feeding fifty to eighty young guys at any one time but that s exactly the path her life took and ultimately it changed her in good waysIn the long un working as a chef at the fraternity was a good move for Darlene for a few easons First she got to do what she loved and also introduced these young men to food a whole lot better for them than Mac and Cheese Secondly nobody else would likely have her at one point she makes a comment that a self attached muzzle could be helpful at times That made me laugh out loud Darlene doesn t hesitate to let us know in her memoir that she s very outspoken and spunky and this is all packed into a woman not much over five feet tall She tells it how it is and fights for the things she believes in such as sourcing food locally and using only fresh ingredients She made life a nightmare for her suppliers and I admired her for sticking to her guns So while life with these guys was often than not driving her crazy it was still a place she could ultimately be herself and that s never a bad thing Funny enough she would be planning on
Leaving Every Year And Then 
every year and then of the guys would say I love you Darlene and she d be back for another oundI enjoyed eading this and I admire Darlene s support of sourcing local and fresh food She would likely have a heart attack if she saw some of the fake food I sometimes eat I will say that eading this invigorated my wanting to eat fresh and for the most part I already do will say that eading this invigorated my wanting to eat fresh and for the most part I already do also enjoyed eading about the elationships that Darlene formed with some of these guys There were many she didn t connect with but there were also a lot she did and those are friendships formed for life Many think that life in a fraternity is just one big party and while there are a lot of parties Darlene opens our eyes to the fact that it is also just a bunch of young guys living a normal everyday lifeEven better are the ecipes that Darlene includes at the end of each chapter and what I liked best about them is that they are good old home cooking my favorite She eiterates is that they are good old home cooking my favorite She eiterates I firmly believe in and that s that so many of our memories are tied into food and many of mine come from the plain but yummy food my mom has always cooked Some of the ecipes from the book that I d like to eventually try are Black Bottom Pie Parker House Rolls Blueberry Cornbread and so many others and because I love soups so much Chicken Tortellini Soup and Chicken Tortilla Soup I think this is a memoir that would appeal to foodies and to people interested in a behind the scenes look at a frat house but also a look at a woman who learned a lot about herself from a bunch of frat guy. Ith these foul mouthed and irreverent but also funny and sensitive guys Her passion for eal food and her sharp tongue make her kitchen a magnet for the brothers new ecruits and sorority girls tired of frozen dinners Laugh out loud funny and poignant Hungry offers a female perspective on the eal lives of young men tells a tale of a woman's determined struggle to find purpose and explores the many ways that food feeds us. ,
