DescriptionLa Pomme de Portland—part memoir/part cookbook—is a gentle reminder to gather your loved ones, share food and stories, and rediscover the art of connecting with one another around the kitchen table. Food brings us together — family, friends, strangers — to share our stories. We draw comfort from one another, from knowing that we all face variations of the same successes and challenges, from knowing that we’re not alone in our messy yet beautiful lives. There's a rhythm to these seasons we live and eat. There's comfort in knowing what's next. Strawberries or butternut squash. Independence or parenthood. These stories and recipes are from the season of Carrie Minns’s life when she sent her youngest off to kindergarten, ushered her eldest out of the nest, and lost her mom to ALS. The details of her stories may be different from yours, but the sentiment is the same – love, loss, regret, celebration. Carrie Minns believes all of us on this tiny planet want the same things from life—to be nourished, to know love, to feel that our lives matter. She hopes that when you read her stories and make her recipes you will be inspired to gather those you love around your own table.
