Publisher's Summary

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 20s 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 20-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 a bottle of wine.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"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)

"Pen & Palate is a modern tale of friendship and food. Lucy and Tram learn many of life's tough lessons: first, cold SpaghettiOs are not better than your mom's homemade caramel and coconut braised pork, and second, you can't hide from your true self (and it just so happens, your true self is actually pretty great)." (Amelia Morris, author of Bon Appétempt)

"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 Friendship and And the Heart Says Whatever)
