Her memoir Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef traces a path through the many kitchens she’s known over the years—from the rural kitchen of her childhood to the kitchens overseas, where she learned the essence of hospitality, to her own kitchen at Prune and that of her Italian mother-in-law.
