SFAtl Book Club: Spoon Fed by Kim Severson

Come join us for the first book club meeting of 2017 with author and New York Times food writer, Kim Severson. We will be discussing her book "Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life."

About Spoon Fed
Somewhere between the lessons her mother taught her and the ones she is now trying to teach her own daughter, Kim Severson stumbled. She lost sight of what mattered, of who she was and who she wanted to be, and of how she needed to live her life. It took a series of encounters with female cooks-including Marion Cunningham, Alice Waters, Ruth Reichl, Rachael Ray, and Marcella Hazan-to reteach her the life lessons she had forgotten, and many she had never learned in the first place. Some were as small as a spoonful, and others so big they saved her life-at any measure, the best lessons she found were delivered in the kitchen. (Amazon.com)

About Kim Severson
Kim Severson has been a staff writer for The New York Times since 2004. She is a correspondent based in the South, reporting on the nation’s food and culture. She is also a contributor to NYT Cooking, a new website and app based on the extensive New York Times collection of recipes and cooking videos.

She lives in Atlanta with her partner and her daughter.

Reading At The Table • Provence, 1970 - Luke Barr

This unique book takes us through a historic conversation between James Beard, M.F.K Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones about the future of the food movement from their time together in Southern France in 1970. M.F.K Fisher chronicled their conversations in journals and letters -- some of which were later discovered by Luke Barr, her great-nephew. Join us for our own version of this conversation, as we look back into the past through the minds of legendary leaders in the food movement.
