In the city where dining out is a sport, one daring gourmand swears
off restaurants and commits to cooking at home in a manifesto for a
new generation of conscientious eaters.
Named one of "Publishers Weekly"'s most exciting cookbook deals,
Cathy Erway's timely memoir of quitting restaurants cold turkey
speaks to a new era of conscientious eating. An underpaid,
twentysomething executive assistant in New York City, she was
struggling to make ends meet when she decided to embark on a
Walden-esque retreat from the high-priced eateries that drained her
wallet. "The Art of Eating In" reports on the delectable results of
her twenty-four-month experiment, with thirty original recipes
What began as a way to save money left Erway with a new
appreciation for the simple pleasure of sharing a meal with friends
at home, a trove of original recipes, and a greater awareness of
take-out food waste and whether her ingredients were ethically
grown. She also explored the antirestaurant underground of supper
clubs and cook-offs, and immersed herself in an array of
alternative eating lifestyles from freeganism to picking tasty
greens in the park. "The Art of Eating In" is a personal journey
that transforms the reader as it transformed the writer, about the
joy of getting back in the kitchen and turning something seemingly
ordinary into something completely extraordinary.
