One of this summer’s most hotly anticipated titles, this novel tells the story of a life-long foodie (and Minnesota native) who becomes the star chef behind the country’s most coveted reservation, a legendary yet secretive pop-up restaurant. Inventively structured, each chapter of the book focuses on a single dish and character, all the while crafting a portrait of Midwestern culture, delicious heirloom ingredients, and foodie culture itself. Stradal is an active player in the West Coast literary scene, and his writing has appeared in many publications, but this is his first novel.
