But love does strange things to people, and when Elissa met Susan -- a small-town Connecticut Yankee with parsimonious tendencies and a devotion to simple living -- it would change Elissa's relationship with food, and the people who taught her about it, forever. With tender and often hilarious honesty (and 27 delicious recipes), Poor Man's Feast is a universal tale of finding sustenance and peace in a world of excess and inauthenticity, and shows us how all our stories are inextricably bound up with what, and how, we feed ourselves and those we love.
