Reviews

""Delancey" is so riveting, well-written, and interesting, I found myself wishing it were twice as long. Molly Wizenberg writes as well about life as she does about food. Her voice is so charming and funny and poignant, it made me want to invite myself over to her place for dinner, where I would certainly overstay. I loved this book."--Kate Christensen "author of Blue Plate Special: An Autobiography of My Appetites "
"Molly Wizenberg s "Delancey" is so much more than a memoir about opening a highly regarded pizza restaurant. It is a story about building a marriage and a beloved community through grit, thrift, and self-determination in the pursuit of excellence. Ultimately this is a story about whole-heartedly embracing the one you love without trying to smooth away the rough edges or edit out the hard parts. It is also a most delicious read (with recipes!) that sent me to the kitchen as soon as I turned the final page."--Susan Rebecca White "author of A Place at the Table "
"You might think making pizza is a piece of cake (or pie!) But Molly Wizenberg s tale of triumph as she and her husband learn to make the perfect pie, and construct the restaurant to serve it in, make for delicious and dramatic reading. Told with humility and humor, "Delancey" shows that with hard work and determination, dreams can come true . . . no matter what obstacles lie in your way."--David Lebovitz "author of My Paris Kitchen "
"Molly Wizenberg writes with the sweet candor of Laurie Colwin and the sly amusement of M.F.K. Fisher. "Delancey" is the perfect restaurant tale -- gripping, nutty, and yet somehow meant to be."--Amanda Hesser "co-founder of Food52 and author of The Essential New York Times Cookbook "
"Delancey is the extraordinary tale of what it means to build a life with the person you love, and the professional roller coaster ride that is opening and running a wildly successful restaurant together. Molly Wizenberg has, in her inimitable way, written a modern love story that marries razor-edged wit to warmth, and passion to flavor; Delancey is an utterly delicious read."--Elissa Altman "Poor Man's Feast "
