While prepping for the Bushwick show inspired by Molly Wizenberg’s A Homemade Life, I became very interested in Wizenberg’s other endeavors. She’s a local Seattle author who put down roots in Ballard. Naturally, I hit the Internet to find out more about her contributions to our community. I’ve collected them for you here.
This is Wizenberg’s blog that started it all. She launched it in 2004 and from there it grew into the book we’re featuring at the April 26th show. On her site, much like the book, you will find recipes and stories from her life.

The Ballard restaurant she opened with her husband offers a variety of New Jersey style wood-fired pizza. They now also own Essex the bar next door. Her next book which is named after the restaurant and details its opening and how it affected her life and her marriage.

My favorite of all Wizenberg’s writings is this collection of recipes, written with her husband, featuring craft cocktails. Although short on story, the recipes go outside the normal cocktail offerings and look delicious.

Wizenberg wrote a column for Bon Appetit online for a few years. Each article featured a recipe (of course) and a story about that recipe. If you’re enjoying the book and the her blog and still want more this is a great resource for other great recipes that she created and stories she shares about them.
