Book Reviews

"It is rare in this world to find a work so completely heartfelt and true to life. Ms. Weber has shown us all that even in times of hardship and suffering, beauty and light can emerge. Inspiration is a word too often thrown around, but there simply is no other way of describing White Jacket Required."
-- Kevin D. Gillespie, chef and author of Fire in My Belly

"White Jacket Required is a flavor-filled account of one young woman's stubborn quest to make her life match up to her dreams. I dare you to read this book without salivating."
-- Rolf Potts, author of Vagabonding and Marco Polo Didn't Go There

"The story starts in a French bakery . . . need I say more? How's this: readers don't need to be enamored of pastries or Paris to find a part of themselves in this inspiring adventure. Jenna Weber is a young woman who, like so many of us, is living her dreams fearlessly, organically, . . . deliciously."
-- Kristine Gasbarre, author of How to Love an American Man

"Delicious and inspiring, Jenna Weber's White Jacket Required is for anyone who loves food, finds comfort in the kitchen, or dares to follow her dreams."
-- Sarah Jio, author of Blackberry Winter

-- Rea Frey, author of The Cheat Sheet: A Clue-by-Clue Guide to Finding Out if He's Unfaithful
