keeping the feastAbout Keeping the Feast: One Couple’s Story of Love, Food, and Healing in Italy

Publisher: Riverhead Hardcover

Publication Date: 2/18/2010

Pages: 272

Keeping the Feast is a story of love, trauma, and the personal and marital healing that can come from a beautiful place and its simple traditions. It’s a memoir about what happens when tragedy and its psychological aftershocks strike a previously happy marriage and a couple must stubbornly fight to find its bearings. Most significantly, it is a book about the power of one of the most fundamental rituals – the daily Butturini C Owen Frankensharing of food around a family table. Food — the growing, shopping, preparing, cooking, eating, talking, sharing and memory of it — becomes the symbol of a family’s innate desire to survive, to accept and even celebrate what falls its way.
