    1. Five stars. I don’t believe it… My bedtime reading is meant to be cheerful tosh before I drift off into the land of Nod. But Prue Leith’s auto biog was different. What a gal! She is an outrageous woman who has led quite an anarchic life, but also a good life. She is intensely readable, and I couldn’t help liking her, in spite of sometimes tut-tutting at her at her more wanton behaviours. She is such a gutsy woman, who has achieved many great things, and she's a woman with a big heart.One [...]


    2. I have just finished reading Prue Leith's lively autobiography and I enjoyed it very much. I am not particularly interested in cookery, but I have fond memories of seeing Prue Leith's mother, the brilliant South African actress, Margaret Inglis in "Separate Tables" when my family and I were on holiday in Durban in 1957. Prue Leith is four years older than me and grew up in South Africa so we shared similar childhood experiences. I found the account of her early years in South Africa, and later y [...]


    3. A very interesting look at a very talented womans life. I knew nothing about Prue Leith before reading this apart from that she was known for cooking and had written some fiction.I enjoyed learning just how much depth this lady had to her life, from her childhood in South Africa, to the Leiths Cookery school, restaurants to the brilliant contracts won etcReally enjoyable read.



    4. This autobiography and memoir is a difficult one to review particularly because at times I found myself liking and disliking it in varying measures. Notice I didn’t say loving and loathing it here – it’s very much middle ground hence the three star rating.No question though that Prue Leith can write well. Her natural storytelling of her own life pulls no punches and harks of a life lived with particular passion, gusto and ‘relish’ – hence the title. I particularly liked hearing about [...]


    5. Thoroughly entertaining! I admire Prue Leith's huge energy, lust for life, work ethic and achievements. What a life she has led, and how well she relates it here. The many outrageous bits are balanced by her charm, resilience, honesty and uncompromising belief that food should be about top quality and minimum frills - rather like her straight-talking writing and management style. There is an upfront balance in relating the ups as well as the downs, and some of both her culinary and relational ri [...]


    6. A frankly-told and honest account of her life, her loves, and her career - all the ups as well as the downs, described with her well-known forthright manner. She's not afraid of being self-critical, and makes no bones about the long-standing affair she had which ended happily with her marriage to her lover after many years of keeping the secret. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and feel a new-found respect for good old Prue after reading it!


    7. Much better than I thought it would be. It did drag a bit in the last half when she rambled on and on about all the committees she was on, but I also cried twice when reading this, so it wasn't without emotional parts. I really only knew her from being a judge on GBM, so it was nice to have some background.


    8. I read this book twice through and got much more out of it the 2nd time. Prue is a larger than life character - would love to have her to dinner.As one of my friends said, she looks a prude, but boy is she naughty.I like the touch of South Africa - places I know - and totally admire her make it happen abilities when things are going wrong in the kitchen


    9. Probably the most honest memoir I have ever read. Likely a good thing that many of the people written about are no longer walking this earth. Prue has led a full life, very ambitious and generous of her time and talents.


    10. Prue is not at all bashful about 'telling it as it is'. She has had a fascinating life so far and in this book, she spills the beans about everything that had an influence on her life. Well written, well worth reading.


    11. An insightful read into the life of a successful business woman. I enjoyed the fact Prue was willing to share her mistakes in life, not just her triumphs. All that being said, the book was rather longer than it needed to be and I felt it really dragged towards the end, causing me to lose interest.


    12. Very honest account. In the early part of her career I couldn't help but think the doors were opened to her because of her privileged family background and connections in all the right place, but I think the indomitable Prue would have been very successful anyway. Much respect.


    13. Boring achievement after achievement a true organiser and committee person a very clever person manipulative but it is passionless I read it without real enjoyment. But I have to hand it to her she has certainly had a very busy and full life amazing woman,


    14. A very frank and honest insight into both the career and personal life of this extraordinary woman. I really enjoyed hearing about how she set up her business and all the challenges along the way.


    15. A 3.5 stars - the book goes through Prue Leith's life from her childhood in South Africa through to her work today. It's an insightful and extremely frank look at her life - she does not mince words. She does not try to hide her failings or mistakes or best moments of her life. Good read.


    16. A very interesting autobiography. Prue has had a life full of successes, but has not avoided sadness and difficulty. She is a bubbly storyteller, very amusing and honest; she does not paint herself as being any kind of angel. Very enjoyable.


    17. If this book had not been free with a magazine I would not have read it. It was about her life but it was to much in your face, all about who she knew and had met got a little fed up with it towards the end




    18. I really enjoyed the majority of this book but I lost enthusiasm towards the end I did not like the excessive name dropping which spoilt it for me. Very interesting read in the main.
