Book Club Discussion: Delicious!: A Novel

Welcome to the Book Club discussion for Delicious!: A Novel by Ruth Reichl. Below is a list of discussion questions to get the conversation started. We are excited to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Feel free to answer all the questions, or pick and choose a few questions to discuss!

  • Billie eventually writes about Sal’s as if it’s “a way of life.” Do you have a favorite establishment that you would describe similarly? What is it like, and how does it make you feel?
  • Diana and Sammy’s friendships help the formerly-contained Billie become more confident. Has a friend ever given you the courage to be more fully yourself? What did you reveal?
  • If you had a victory garden, what would you grow?
  • Do you have friends or family who remember what it was like to eat during World War II? What stories have they shared with you?
  • As the book closes, what does Billie discover she owes Genie?
