Publisher Comments:

In the city where dining out is a sport, one daring gourmand swears off restaurants and commits to cooking at home in a manifesto for a new generation of conscientious eaters.

Named one of Publishers Weekly's most exciting cookbook deals, Cathy Erway's timely memoir of quitting restaurants cold turkey speaks to a new era of conscientious eating. An underpaid, twentysomething executive assistant in New York City, she was struggling to make ends meet when she decided to embark on a Walden-esque retreat from the high-priced eateries that drained her wallet. The Art of Eating In reports on the delectable results of her twenty-four-month experiment, with thirty original recipes included.

What began as a way to save money left Erway with a new appreciation for the simple pleasure of sharing a meal with friends at home, a trove of original recipes, and a greater awareness of take-out food waste and whether her ingredients were ethically grown. She also explored the antirestaurant underground of supper clubs and cook-offs, and immersed herself in an array of alternative eating lifestyles from freeganism to picking tasty greens in the park. The Art of Eating In is a personal journey that transforms the reader as it transformed the writer, about the joy of getting back in the kitchen and turning something seemingly ordinary into something completely extraordinary.

If you enjoy reading about food, and especially the preparing of food and the event or circumstances around it; you will enjoy this book. Being someone who loves to cook, but finds too many days filled with work, errands, family commitments, etc... and ending with feeling the financial pinch and physical guilt from grabbing something quick to eat out somewhere.... this seemed like a book I'd enjoy. Starting with the title, The Art of Eating In, compelled me much more when I thought of it as an art instead of lesser words like chore, task, obligation?

The author, Cathy Erway, decides to (in NYC of all places) start saving money and eating healthier by not eating out for an entire year, and blog about it along the way. Her journey includes how it works (and doesn't) with her personal relationships as a single woman, with her schedule, with her cravings to learn about new foods and how to cook them.

From learning about foraging to fun food cook-off and private dinner party events, this was an interesting read for me from start to finish.
