For years, Keith Dixon sustained himself through rough days by dreaming about lavish recipes he’d attempt when he got home—Thai curries, Indian raitas, Sichuan noodles. All that changed when his daughter, Gracie, was born. Keith and his wife adapted to life with a newborn as all parents do: walking around in a sleep-deprived haze, trying to bond with Gracie and meet her needs—all while fearing they would catastrophically fail in their new roles. Keith no longer had time to cook the way he once knew; he soon realized that if he wanted his family to eat well, he would have to learn to cook all over again.

Based on three popular New York Times articles and full of delicious, family-friendly recipes, Cooking for Gracie is a memoir of Gracie’s first year—as Keith discovers what it means to be a father, while holding on to what made him who he was before his daughter came along. It’s an irresistible and unforgettable story, for foodies and parents alike, of a family of three finding their way together.
