A new book!

Woohoo!  I'm sure you remember Amy Thielen, James Beard award-winner and Adeline's granddaughter?  Here's her brand new book, and she writes even better than her great-grandpa Math Hesch 😊). Here's her intro from Facebook:

"It's here! It's pretty--deckle edge! And just a little menacing--all those knives! It's migrating all over my house, spawning like pink gremlins, and I am so happy! If you like stories about fine dining brigades, and heavy metal line cooks, and warehouse squats, and lonesome farmers who drink beer for breakfast, and backwoods hippie life, and head cheese and well-pounding projects, oh, and bleach, butter, bread, and why the hell after moving on you should ever move back home, then this book's for you. On sale everywhere May 16, but preorders get it to you quicker. Thank you to my family for enduring me as I wrote this book, and thank you to all the people in it who--one way or another--altered my course. So proud to know you".
Pretty proud to claim YOU too, Amy!
