About this product
- DescriptionBased on the James Beard Award-Winning Blog Born and raised in New York to a food-phobic mother and a food-fanatical father, Elissa learned early on that fancy is always best. After a childhood spent dining at fine establishments, from Le Pavillon to La Greuille, she devoted her life to all things gastromical. She served rare game birds at elaborate dinner parties in an apartment so tiny that the guests couldn t turn around and bought eight timbale molds while working at Dean & DeLuca, just to make her food tall. Then, Elissa met and fell in love with Susan a frugal, small-town Connecticut Yankee with a devotion to simple living and it changed her relationship with food, and the people who taught her about it, forever. Told with tender and often hilarious honesty, and filled with twenty-six delicious recipes, Poor Man s Feast is a tale of finding sustenance and peace in a world of excess and inauthenticity, demonstrating how all our stories are inextricably bound up with how we feed ourselves and those we love.
- Author BiographyElissa Altman is the author of the critically-acclaimed memoir Poor Man's Feast, and the James Beard Award-winning blog of the same name.
