Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage - Molly Wizenberg
Fans of Molly Wizenberg’s foodie blog Orangette and her previous book, A Homemade Life, know that Wizenberg’s appeal lies in the smart way that she pairs emotionality with clear and concise writing, delicious recipes with backstories. Her new book, Delancey, is no different. Delancey is half love story and half food literature- written in a very linear manner, Wizenberg tells the story of how she met, fell in love, and wed her husband and how they then decided to open a pizza restaurant right outside of Seattle. Between the chapters that tell the tale of the restaurant Delancey, lie several recipes that they were important to them while they were working to open the restaurant. A delicious book- I gobbled it whole in an afternoon, and afterwards went out for pizza.
