Apron Anxiety by Alyssa Shelasky - Excerpt

Apron Anxiety by Alyssa Shelasky - Excerpt

Ratings: (0)|Views: 4,005 |Likes:
Apron Anxiety is the hilarious and heartfelt memoir of quintessential city girl Alyssa Shelasky and her crazy, complicated love affair with...the kitchen.

Three months into a relationship with her TV-chef crush, celebrity journalist Alyssa Shelasky left her highly social life in New York City to live with him in D.C. But what followed was no fairy tale: Chef hours are tough on a relationship. Surrounded by foodies yet unable to make a cup of tea, she was displaced and discouraged. Motivated at first by self-preservation rather than culinary passion, Shelasky embarked on a journey to master the kitchen, and she created the blog Apron Anxiety (ApronAnxiety.com) to share her stories.

This is a memoir (with recipes) about learning to cook, the ups and downs of love, and entering the world of food full throttle. Readers will delight in her infectious voice as she dishes on everything from the sexy chef scene to the unexpected inner calm of tying on an apron.

Penny Pepin added this note
I'm on my way to Barnes and Noble to purchase a copy of this delightful so well written book. I worked with your mom and loved almost every moment of it. Her style was unique and didn't always fit in with the conservative realestate world we occupied. I told her once that her outfit wasn't acceptable-she didn't miss a beat with her respone "so Penny you would't call this a Kodak moment".
