Published: Picador - April 6th, 2021

" I got really into reading food writing again at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic, which is right when this book came out. Perfect for the fans of Jenny Offill's fiction or Heather Christle's Crying Book, Grant's sparse prose cuts deep and leaves a mark. And of course, there' nothing better than reading about a dish in a book and then being able to re-create it on your own."- Eileen
