"Told with charming good humor, this millennial-girls-taking-on-the-world story will have readers immediately casting themselves and their girlfriends as either a Lucy or a Tram . . . An absolute must-have for young women and a perfect addition to food and memoir collections."
"[Lucy and Tram's] advice on how to get through that fraught post-college decade: Good food, good friends, and plenty of wine. Oh, and listen to your mother (sometimes). . . . PEN & PALATE offers some lived-in advice for surviving your twenties--and eating well along the way."
―Food & Wine
"I have rarely devoured a book as quickly and as joyfully as PEN & PALATE. I paused in my reading only to snack-the book made me so happy, and so hungry. Besides being a brilliantly conceived, beautifully illustrated, funny and delicious book, PEN & PALATE is also the story of a real, deep, and wonderful friendship."―Emily Gould, author of Friendship and And the Heart Says Whatever
"PEN & PALATE is a modern tale of friendship and food. Lucy and Tram learn many of life's tough lessons: first, cold SpaghettiOs are not better than your mom's homemade caramel and coconut braised pork, and second, you can't hide from your true self (and it just so happens, your true self is actually pretty great)."―Amelia Morris, author of Bon Appétempt
"PEN & PALATE lets you tag along on the fun, sad, and sometimes kind of embarrassing journey of two young women stumbling into their own identities, while holding fast to one another. Weaving in the hallmark recipes of each chapter in their lives, Lucy and Tram have made a cozy and satisfying meal out of their stories-the kind that makes you want to sit at the table and chat all night long."―Kelsey Miller, author of Big Girl
