Eat Joy

DUE IN OCTOBER There are moments in our lives which imprint on our souls, and often when we recollect them, our memories entangle with sensory information.  The visceral quality of food as it relates to memory is unparalleled—sometimes we eat our favorite foods as comfort during grief, or a dish prepared by a friend becomes healing food from then on.  Eat Joy is a lively collection of autobiographical stories in which food plays a starring role (recipes included—and they are lovely!).  A diverse selection of celebrated authors tell stories of growth and loss, healing and homecoming, and the resulting collection is nothing short of magical.

"Food binds this book together, and each beautifully told story circles life's truths in ways that are surprising, often revelatory, and always moving. It's impossible not to love Eat Joy, and equally impossible not to want to bake and eat these dishes while reading. It's an extraordinary collection." --Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author of Everyday Dorie
