Chicken and Egg Released

January 30, 2011

My book Chicken and Egg; A Memoir of Suburban Homesteading with 125 Recipes is officially out! I kept hearing reports from friends and family across the country from Boston to Bethesda to Kansas City that they’d seen it at their local Crate & Barrel store and they’d send me photos as proof. But it still didn’t seem real to me until I made the journey this week to our local C&B to see it on the shelves.

You’ll have to excuse the photography as I did my best with the less than perfect lighting available in the store, but there it was, beautifully displayed! The excited sales staff I talked with told me that, “It’s our favorite cookbook right now!” and “We all want to get one.” They all loved the photography and artwork. I agree, it really makes the book!

If you’re still waiting for the book to come to your area or your favorite store, don’t worry. The official release date was 1/26, which means the books should have left the warehouse on that date but it may take weeks before they’re actually on the shelves. You’ll have plenty of choices from Crate & Barrel, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Williams Sonoma, and Anthropologie and possibly more. Let me know when and where you see the book in your area and send me a photo if you’d like. I’ll do a shout out on Facebook and Twitter for you!

In honor of the book’s official release, next time I’ll share one of my favorite recipes from the Late Winter chapter in the book.

    I can't imagine the thrill of seeing a book you wrote sitting in a pile for sale in a store. Congrats to you on a huge effort finally "hatching."

    Thanks, it's so nice of you to comment! It feels like a "hatching" so thanks for the visual! Hope you're keeping warm up there in Montana.
