"You will develop a palate. A palate is a spot on your tongue where you remember. Where you assign words to the texture of taste. Eating becomes a discipline, language-obsessed. You will never simply eat food again." These are the words that introduce us to Tess, the narrator of Sweetbitter -- she's come to New York to escape her provincial, mundane past, and find her destiny. After she stumbles into a coveted job at a renowned Union Square restaurant, we spend the year with her as she learns the chaotic, punishing, privileged life of a "backwaiter," on duty and off. Her appetites--for food, wine, knowledge, and every kind of experience--are awakened. Join Chef Becky Reams on a culinary journey as she "cooks the book" in honor of the recently released "Sweetbitter" by Stephanie Danler. Your ticket includes a hardcover copy of the book and author Stephanie Danler will be on hand to sign them as well.
