LM Editor-in-Chief Caroline Grant and LM contributor Lisa Catherine Harper are giving away two copies of their newly-released book, The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage: True Tales of Food, Family, and How We Learn to Eat.
From the press release:
From the $6 peach to boxed macaroni and cheese, food is never just about what we eat. It is the fuel for our life stories. The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage: True Tales of Food, Family, and How We Learn to Eat is an anthology of original essays about how we learn (and relearn) to eat, and how pivotal food is beyond the table.
The 29 writers, well-known journalists, chefs, and parents articulate for us how food’s importance—in our culture, in our lives, and in our families—is reflected in a dish as simple as a pasta sauce, or as complex as a cassoulet.
The essays in this book get people to think about what they buy, how they cook, and why they come together at the table—the stories are entertaining and share fresh perspectives on food and family, but they also get people thinking about all the ways that food matters. The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage: True Tales of Food, Family, and How We Learn to Eat reminds us, too, that there are plenty of practical, accessible ways to improve our family’s meals, one dish at time.
