Event description

Description

Meet local author Laura Zinn Fromm who grew up eating chocolate mousse with a silver teaspoon. So begins the title essay from Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking & Coping– two parts memoir, one part cookbook. A former award-winning journalist and self-described sugar addict, Fromm is both funny and frank in this moving account of trying to find comfort in a family fraught with mental illness. These essays are warm and generous, as are her recipes and cooking advice. You’ll find everything in here, from baking for a Nobel Prize winner to courting a kidnapper; mastering a mousse soufflé to roasting a chicken in milk. Fromm writes about her life with a tenderness and tenacity, and about food with a devotion and sensuality that will inspire even the most kitchen-phobic among us to bolt for our sauté pans. If food is love, Fromm depicts cooking as even lovelier.

Sample some of her recipes that helped her cope through this time of her life.

Note: There will be a limited number of books available at the event for purchase. If you would like to purchase a copy of Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking & Coping to be signed by Laura, please RSVP for Event & Book. We will invoice you and book will be waiting for you at the event.
