Food for Marriage
“FOOD FOR MARRIAGE IS DELECTABLE; ADDICTIVE AS HERITAGE BACON, SALTY AS A JUST-SHUCKED BLUEPOINT, AND HOT AS A HABANERO .”
Author, America: The Cookbook
When four couples – college friends from across the years – gather for a dinner party at Lucy and Lionel’s Manhattan apartment, the wine flows and the sparks fly. Lucy’s mastery in the kitchen is one draw; the debut of the first of the group to divorce and reappear with a new partner on her arm is the other. As the night unfolds, confidences once buried rise to the surface, and truths are revealed about love, fidelity, and the search for the perfect tuna tartare. By evening’s end, no one remains unscathed. Friendships and loyalties are put to the test in this urban trial of food and marriage.
“ONCE UPON A TIME BEFORE INSTAGRAM, PEOPLE USED TO GO TO DINNER PARTIES AND TALK. CARLTON CAPTURES ALL THE INGREDIENTS OF ONE CRAZY NIGHT AND YOU’RE SORT OF AMAZED ANYONE IS LEFT STANDING BY THE END.”
–John DeLucie, Executive Chef and Owner, Empire Diner and Bedford & Co.
