NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Blood, Bones a Butter follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with an oily wooden spoon in hand; the kitchens of France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and learned the essence of hospitality; Hamiltona€™s own kitchen at Prune, with its many unexpected challenges; and the kitchen of her Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamiltona€™s idyllic past and her own future familya€”the result of a prickly marriage that nonetheless yields lasting dividends. By turns epic and intimate, Gabrielle Hamiltona€™s story is told with uncommon honesty, grit, humor, and passion. Look for special features inside. Join the Circle for author chats and more.
