About the Author

Sutanya Dacres is the creator and host of the podcast Dinner for One, which has been featured in the New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, Time Out, and more. She has held a number of copywriting positions in New York City and Paris. Having grown up in New York City, she currently resides, and cooks dinners for one, in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris. Dinner for One is her first book.

"An anti-fairytale that's all the more enthralling for being representative, raw, and real... Sutanya in Paris is so much greater than Emily in Paris." --Lauren Collins, author of When in French

"Dacres is at her best when indulging readers in her culinary experiences--particularly the cathartic act of cooking solo that, post-divorce, allows her to heal... Those craving a hopeful comeback story will find much to savor." --Publishers Weekly

"Dacres--whose podcast that shares this book's title is now in its fourth season--writes honestly about identity and the pressures we put on ourselves to fit in. Sharing the ways she creates a home in Paris that fits who she truly is, one meal at a time, her work speaks directly to readers." --Booklist

"A new take on self-care, Sutanya's journey will take lucky readers on an intercontinental voyage in food, love, loss, and rediscovery in her debut memoir." --Zibby Owens, from her Good Morning America column

"Dinner for One is hopeful, salubrious and, like a meal served with love, a balm for the spirit." --BookPage
