Product Description


"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 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)

Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed the book. I am always interested in the restaurant business. Molly tells a good story of her life and marriage with Brandon and how they built the restaurant and business. I love the recipes that are at the end of each chapter. I also admire that Molly admits that she cannot keep up with the pressures of being a pantry cook. She is now handling more administrative parts of running Delanceys, while Brandon handles the front end of the business. Great to hear that how Brandon spent so much time and research to build the perfect pizza. Delanceys is successful and they have opened a cocktail bar next door and Molly had a baby. Based on the book I have looked at her blog orangette which updates the story from the book including her book tour and her podcast Spilled Milk.

The restaurant business is tough! We have read it from chefs such as Anthony Bourdain and other very seasoned cooks with big arms and a lot of tattoos. But what happens when a musician and a food blogger/writer decide to open a pizzeria?
Delancey takes us into the hand wringing, the dust (wether it be from construction or flour), the highs and the lows of the process.
Molly's writes (yes, we are on a first name basis, that is how much I relate to her writing) at such a human scale, you cannot help but being completely drawn into the experience.
Intertwined with a more eclectic mix of recipes than in her first memoir, Delancey reads like your best friend's diary. I really just wanted to tell Molly: "it's ok! Hang in there! I know how you feel!"
A must read.

Too short, and needed a lot more detail. Too slurred over, and think it could of been better by spending more time at that writing process. The restaurant life is dreadfully hard, and this could of been a terrific book. It seemed like the author was afraid of revealing too much of her life, and I don't mean intimate, I mean little details that spices things up a bit, and gives the reader more in depth of the restaurant world. I am sure there are experiences that happened that would give everyone a laugh, and the close encounters that send you in suspense. In short, it appeared it was written in one heck of a hurry, and it shows.

My wife liked the novel far more than I did. We usually read books and then compare what we thought about them. I skipped through all of the recipes and she didn't. I thought that the story was honest, well written and could have been written as a blog and not a novel.

I enjoyed following the story of the opening of Delancey restaurant. I don't think I am going to make any of the recipes in the book. It was interesting to hear the struggles of Molly.

Basically it got me through a 4 hour flight with enjoyment.
