This memoir derives from Kate’s popular foodcentric blog, in which she shares scenes from an unusual upbringing and an unusually happy present-day life, providing an audience for this book that is already primed. That it is written by Kate Christensen means it will be a delicious reading experience in every sense, a compulsively readable account of a knockabout life, full of sorrows and pleasures, many of the latter of the sensual, appetitive variety.

Quotes & Awards

  • Blue Plate Special is the memoir of an utterly original thinker, a free-spirited gourmand, and a great American writer. It’s an expert guide on inspiration, ingenuity, heartbreak, buoyancy, home, love, family, screwing up, bouncing back and perfecting the bacon-cheddar biscuit.”

    Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl

  • “A breathtaking book, sensuously written, emotionally generous, and decadent as a bowl of macaroni and cheese.”

    Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins

  • “A novelist’s deliciously engrossing exploration of her life through the two major passions that have defined it: food and writing…A Rabelaisian celebration of appetite, complete with savory recipes, that genuinely satisfies.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • A 2013 New York Times Editor’s Choice
