Product description

Review

"A crave-worthy memoir that is part love story, part restaurant industry tale. Scrumptious.” (People)

"You'll feel the warmth from this pizza oven...affectionate...cheerfully honest...warm and inclusive, just like her cooking." (USA Today)

"Wizenberg shines as a writer. She brilliantly turns the ups and downs of their do-it-yourself project into a compelling yet hilarious narrative....Like dipping into a lively, keenly observed diary....Charming." (Boston Globe)

"Charming, funny, and honest--in a hip, understated way--Wizenberg combines simple, appealing recipes with a tale of how nurturing her husband's passion project helped her see him, and herself, more clearly." (More)

"The messy, explosive, and exhilarating story of giving birth to a restaurant...draws readers right into the heat of the kitchen." (Christian Science Monitor)

“When I sit down with Molly Wizenberg’s writing, it feels as though she’s just across the counter, coffee cup in hand, sharing an intimate truth….Inspiring, entertaining and informative, [Delancey] is a satisfying read.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

"What makes this story so readable...is that it doesn't just chronicle the nuts and bolts of starting a restaurant. It's as much about navigating a new marriage, figuring out what kind of life you want to make together and what roles you want to play in life together." (Dinner: A Love Story)

"Honest, humorous, and endearing." (PopSugar)

"It's about how the things we make, make us. It's also about discovering our stories as we live them, learning to understand them, and ourselves through them. Oh, and it's about pizza too." (Sweet Amandine)

"Illuminates the restaurant experience in a way that was entirely new to me....Molly's gift is to walk you through the process while simultaneously broadcasting her own emotional journey...honest and essential." (Amateur Gourmet)

"You will cheer for Wizenberg...and her husband as they navigate the exciting and sometimes treacherous task of opening a Seattle pizza shop--and try to build a marriage too, in this honest, sprightly memoir." (Coastal Living)

"Charming . . . humorous, intimate, and honest." (Library Journal (starred review))

"Fun and engaging." (Publishers Weekly)

"Entertaining and wondering and plainspoken...full of the hard work and trial and error of emerging into adulthood." (Bookforum)

"Molly Wizenberg writes with the sweet candor of Laurie Colwin and the sly amusement of M.F.K. Fisher. Delancey is the perfect restaurant tale -- gripping, nutty, and yet somehow meant to be." (Amanda Hesser co-founder of Food52 and author of The Essential New York Times Cookbook)

"Delancey is so riveting, well-written, and interesting, I found myself wishing it were twice as long. Molly Wizenberg writes as well about life as she does about food. Her voice is so charming and funny and poignant, it made me want to invite myself over to her place for dinner, where I would certainly overstay. I loved this book." (Kate Christensen author of Blue Plate Special: An Autobiography of My Appetites)

"You might think making pizza is a piece of cake (or pie!) But Molly Wizenberg’s tale of triumph as she and her husband learn to make the perfect pie, and construct the restaurant to serve it in, make for delicious – and dramatic – reading. Told with humility and humor, Delancey shows that with hard work and determination, dreams can come true . . . no matter what obstacles lie in your way." (David Lebovitz author of My Paris Kitchen)

"Molly Wizenberg’s Delancey is so much more than a memoir about opening a highly regarded pizza restaurant. It is a story about building a marriage and a beloved community through grit, thrift, and self-determination in the pursuit of excellence. Ultimately this is a story about whole-heartedly embracing the one you love without trying to smooth away the rough edges or edit out the hard parts. It is also a most delicious read (with recipes!) that sent me to the kitchen as soon as I turned the final page." (Susan Rebecca White author of A Place at the Table)

"Delancey is the extraordinary tale of what it means to build a life with the person you love, and the professional roller coaster ride that is opening and running a wildly successful restaurant together. Molly Wizenberg has, in her inimitable way, written a modern love story that marries razor-edged wit to warmth, and passion to flavor; Delancey is an utterly delicious read." (Elissa Altman Poor Man's Feast)

By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 April 2016
Format: Hardcover
You have to believe in life before you can accomplish anything" written by Jack Kerouac, is a sentence that resonates with Molly Wizenberg. She believes in excellence, and has this sentence along with others written by Jack Kerouac near her desk, taped to her wall. I have followed Molly since I found her blog 'Orangette' , 5 years ago. I followed her romance with Brandon, their marriage and the beginnings of 'Delancey'. Her first book, 'A Homemade Life' summed it all up nicely. Now, we have the rest of the story.

My daughter and her family took me to Delancey in 2011. I was surprised at how small the restaurant was, even though I knew it was small from reading about it. We arrived early, and waited for Delancey to open. The sounds of happy people resonated down the street, and once inside it was homey and smelled so good. We each ordered a pizza, my grandson, then 5, ate an entire pizza by himself. I ordered the Margharita pizza and had one piece left to bring home. It was the best pizza I have eaten. My daughter and her family have been back many times. This is an off side to let you know that when Molly talks about how hard Brandon worked to find the best pizza dough and the best over-all pizza, he succeeded.

Molly tells the story of the thought processes and development of Delancey, at the same time intertwining the story of Molly and Brandon's marriage. Both have been difficult, and, at times, Molly wondered what they were doing. Brandon had a habit of finding something he loved, working at it until he accomplished the best result. The thought of a pizza restaurant was something Molly thought was probably a passing fancy. She was immersed in writing her first book, had a contract, and had to finish the book and then tour.

I love Molly , the way she writes , the way she expressed love and loss in A homemade life , I immediately rushed to purchase Delancey , another great memoir , I was excited , what could be better , I love pizza too . This is a boring book .... Brandon said , Brandon ate pizza , Brandon made a dough .... This is a business book not a food book . I did not find love or passionate expression here , just some dry crisp words about how or how not to open a business .

Honest memoir of the experience of one couple opening and running a restaurant, if you have read Molly's first book or you follow her blog, Orangette then this is a must read, if not its a complete story in itself.
