Food is so much more than what we eat. Join editors of the delectable essay collection The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage, Caroline M. Grant and Lisa Catherine Harper with local contributors Elizabeth Crane, Gregory Dicum, & K.G. Schneider, as they share sharp, sweet, and candid memories of food's importance beyond the table.

“The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage is a delightful collection of essays that help define the importance of food in our lives. This book made me hungry for good meals and good people. I dare you to read this book and not start planning a dinner party.”
—Anne Zimmerman, author of An Extravagant Hunger: The Passionate Years of M.F.K. Fisher (Counterpoint)

“A fantastic collection that is as much about relationships as it is about the food that bonds us. You will never look at your family dinner in the same way again.”
—Wylie Dufresne, chef/owner of wd~50 and Alder

“The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage brings together a talented and diverse group of writers, and through their appealingly wide-ranging essays, each shares stories – emotional, funny, revealing—about their relationship to food and the way food shapes their relationship to the world. These stories aren't just about what we eat, but also about how those choices help us understand who we are.”
—Peter Meehan, editor, Lucky Peach
