   Sweet Memories

We remember a part of Harvard Square’s history with writer Charlotte Silver. In her memoir, Charlotte Au Chocolat: Memories of a Restaurant Girlhood, Silver recalls growing up at Upstairs at the Pudding, the legendary restaurant that her parents opened in 1982.

Being raised in a restaurant had its perks: Silver sipped Shirley Temples and dined on Dover sole. She had a window into a swanky, grownup world- accentuated by flamboyant characters only found in restaurant kitchens. A solitary observer who ate her meals alone and took naps under the bar, Silver’s recollections are a tribute to the backbreaking work that goes into running a mom and pop business. Her memoir is an elegy to the lushness of fine dining. Her words are a tribute to the particular surprise and depth of felling that come with being a kid.

GUEST:
  Charlotte Silver, writer, author of Charlotte Au Chocolat: Memories of a Restaurant Girlhood.
