From the writers of acclaimed blog Pen & Palate, a humorous coming-of-age (and mastering-the-art-of-home-cooking) memoir of friendship, told through stories, recipes, and beautiful illustrations.

Getting through life in your twenties isn’t easy—especially if you’re broke, awkward, and prone to starting small grease fires in your studio apartment. For best friends Lucy Madison and Tram Nguyen, cooking was an escape from the daily humiliation that is being a twenty-something woman in a big city. Pen & Palate traces the course of Lucy and Tram’s devoted friendship through miserable jobs and tiny apartments, first loves and ill-advised flings, successes and setbacks—always with a shared love of food at the center of the narrative. A modern take on Laurie Colwin’s classic Home Cooking, this coming-of-age memoir for the Girls set weaves together comical (mis)adventures and recipes meant to be shared with a best friend and bottle of wine.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I have rarely devoured a book as quickly and as joyfully as Pen & Palate. I paused in my reading only to snack-the book made me so happy, and so hungry. Besides being a brilliantly conceived, beautifully illustrated, funny and delicious book, Pen & Palate is also the story of a real, deep, and wonderful friendship.”

    Emily Gould, author of And the Heart Says Whatever

  • Pen & Palate lets you tag along on the fun, sad, and sometimes kind of embarrassing journey of two young women stumbling into their own identities, while holding fast to one another. Weaving in the hallmark recipes of each chapter in their lives, Lucy and Tram have made a cozy and satisfying meal out of their stories—the kind that makes you want to sit at the table and chat all night long.”

    Kelsey Miller, author of Big Girl
