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.

They let you see behind the scenes into the kitchens (and shopping carts) of real American families.
