The oysters they ate together the first night in their new city. The chicken Milanese she learned to cook after weight-loss surgery. The cassoulet that both anchors and rebuilds their crumbling marriage. 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 is an anthology of original essays about how we learn (and relearn) to eat, and how pivotal food is beyond the table. Without mantras or manifestos, twenty-nine writers serve up sharp, sweet, and candid memories; salty irreverence; and delicious original recipes.You will recognize yourself in these stories. These writers, journalists, and chefs are also parents, husbands, wives, children, and caregivers--just like us. They let you see behind the scenes into the kitchens (and shopping carts) of real American families. With crisp honesty, they articulate for us how food--in our culture, in our lives, and in our families--is sometimes as simple as a pasta sauce, or as complex as cassoulet. The true gift of these essays is that they give voice to our own innermost thoughts and questions. Who hasn't considered the ethics of not eating meat, or eating meat again? We all mull over fat, calories, GMOs, and whether to shop at big-box stores or farmers' markets. We celebrate and grieve with food, and we wonder what to do when food becomes the enemy. With reassuring candor, these writers show that it's never too late--and easier than we think--to change what we serve on our tables every day. Essays include: "Raising a Baby with a Four-Star Palate": Pete Wells revisits his famous New York Times column about raising his son to discover the joys of simple, delicious foods, and just how early our appetites are cultivated. "Talk with Your Mouth Full": Catherine Newman describes the exquisite agony of shopping for the family, with the family. "A Case for Soul Food": Deesha Philyaw wonders how--and whether--she will pass along her family's heritage. "One Bite at a Time": Elrena Evans confronts her own history of eating disorders when her toddler refuses to eat solid food.
