"A delicious and mouthwatering book about food and family, the complicated love for both, and how that shapes us into who we are . . . I absolutely loved it!" --Valerie Bertinelli From the bestselling author and host of the wildly popular Undisclosed podcast, a warm, intimate memoir about food, body image, and growing up in a loving but sometimes oppressively concerned Pakistani immigrant family. "My entire life I have been less fat and more fat, but never not fat." According to family lore, when Rabia Chaudry's family returned to Pakistan for their first visit since moving to the United States, two-year-old Rabia was more than just a pudgy toddler. Dada Abu, her fit and sprightly grandfather, attempted to pick her up but had to put her straight back down, demanding of Chaudry's mother: "What have you done to her?" The answer was two full bottles of half-and-half per day, frozen butter sticks to gnaw on, and lots and lots of American processed foods.   And yet, despite her parents plying her with all the wrong foods as they discovered Burger King and Dairy Queen, they were highly concerned for the future for their large-sized daughter. How would she ever find a suitable husband? There was merciless teasing by uncles, cousins, and kids at school, but Chaudry always loved food too much to hold a grudge against it. Soon she would leave behind fast food and come to love the Pakistani foods of her heritage, learning to cook them with wholesome ingredients and eat them in moderation. At once a love letter (with recipes) to fresh roti, chaat, chicken biryani, ghee, pakoras, shorba, parathay and an often hilarious dissection of life in a Muslim immigrant family, Fatty Fatty Boom Boom is also a searingly honest portrait of a woman grappling with a body that gets the job done but that refuses to meet the expectations of others.   Chaudry's memoir offers readers a relatable and powerful voice on the controversial topic of body image, one that dispenses with the politics and gets to what every woman who has ever struggled with weight will relate to.  … (més)

Captivating == if I had to use one word for this memoir, that would be it. From the first chapter, I found myself caught up in the story of a young Pakistani girl who comes to America and in addition to coping with all the difficulties attendant the immigrant experience, faces constant derogatory comments about her appearance and weight.

What makes this memoir different from the many other stories highlighting food struggles is its beautiful and informative descriptions of the vibrant Pakistani cuisine, the author's honesty depiction of her experience with domestic abuse and divorce, and the intimate and warm portrayal of her large and loving family.

The icing on the cake is her ultimate triumph over her long battle to reconcile her love of food with her feelings about her body as she learns to accept and embrace who she is, both inside and out.

Highly recommended. ( )
