I wanted to go on reading it forever’ – Nigella Lawson’Like a dinner with friends you won’t want to end’ – J. Ryan Stradal, author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest’Warm, delicious, and absolutely satisfying-I devoured in one enthusiastic gulp!’ – Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Train to London When twenty-seven-year-old Joan Bergstrom sends a fan letter – as well as a gift of saffron – to fifty-nine-year-old Imogen Fortier, a life-changing friendship begins. Joan lives in Los Angeles and is just starting out as a writer for the newspaper food pages.

Imogen lives on Camano Island outside Seattle, writing a monthly column for a Pacific Northwest magazine, and while she can hunt elk and dig for clams, she’s never tasted fresh garlic – exotic fare in the Northwest US of the 1960s. As the two women commune through their letters, they build a closeness that sustains them through the unexpected changes in their own lives. Food and a good life – they can’t be separated.
