Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert’s Renegade Life tells the incredible life story of food legend Paula Wolfert, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2013. The culinary biography written by Emily Kaiser Thelin and photographed by Eric Wolfinger shares fifty-plus of her most unforgettable dishes and explores the relationship between food and memory.

The gripping narrative traces the arc of Wolfert’s career from her Brooklyn childhood to her adventures in the farthest corners of the Mediterranean; from nights spent with Beat Generation icons like Allen Ginsberg to working with the great James Beard; from living in Morocco at a time when its culture was similar to 14th-century culture to bringing international food to America’s kitchens through magazines and cookbooks. This new edition includes a foreword by Alice Waters.

The Inviting Life: An Inspirational Guide to Homemaking,
Hosting and Opening the Door to Happiness

By Laura Calder

Far more than a guide to homemaking and being a fine host—although it is definitely all that, too—The Inviting Life is about how to live each day with a desire and determination to turn the ordinary into something lovely. It’s also a book about why we should bother. Whether the subject is décor, ambience, shopping, feeding weary travelers, mixing cocktails, planning dinner parties, or getting yourself motivated for spring cleaning, Laura Calder affirms the value of our everyday activities and shows how beauty, creativity, and delight have the power to change the world. This one-of-a-kind book is a spur to ideas for everything from creating a welcoming living space and making a respectable salad to putting guests at ease and writing a thank-you note worth receiving. Written with candor and humor, it offers empowering guidance for anyone looking to take more pleasure in their life and home.
