In this funny, frank, and tender new memoir, the author of the New York Times bestseller A Homemade Life and the blog Orangette recounts how opening a pizza restaurant sparked the first crisis of her young marriage.When Molly Wizenberg married Brandon Pettit, he was a trained composer with a handful of offbeat interests: espresso machines, violin construction, boat building, and ice cream making. When Brandon decided to open a pizza restaurant, Molly was supportive—not because she wanted him to do it, but because the idea was so far-fetched that she didn’t think he would. Before she knew it, he’d signed a lease. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be a reality, and Molly’s assumptions about her married life were about to change. Together they built Delancey: gutting and renovating the space on a small budget, developing a menu, hiring staff, passing inspections, and opening the doors. Delancey became a success, and Molly tried to convince herself she was happy—until, in the heat and pressure of the restaurant kitchen, she was forced to admit she hadn’t been honest with herself or Brandon. With evocative photos by Molly and twenty new recipes for the kind of simple, delicious food that chefs eat at home, Delancey is a moving and honest account of two young people learning to give in and let go in order to grow together.
