Community Event! Leanne Brown Presents Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4 a Day

Food Tasting.  Talk.  Signing.  Community!

Our friends at Workman are publishing an extraordinary cookbook called GOOD & CHEAP: Eat Well on $4 a Day.  

It was originally conceived as the author’s thesis for the NYU Food Studies program and has since gone viral as a PDF, a self published book, and is now a fully distributed (and much more robust) cookbook!  And because the idea was originally to help feed people who are food insecure, and to feed them well, they are donating a copy for every copy sold.  

For every book bought the night of the event or from our online bookstore prior to the event, one book will be donated to our partners The Neighborhood Resource Center of Fulton Hill where they will be distributed to families in need!  Read more about NRC by clicking below:


More about Leanne and the Good and Cheap: While studying food policy as a master's candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on the $4 a day given by SNAP, the U.S. government s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program informally known as food stamps? The answer is surprisingly well: Broiled Tilapia with Lime, Spicy Pulled Pork, Green Chile and Cheddar Quesadillas, Vegetable Jambalaya, Beet and Chickpea Salad even desserts like Coconut Chocolate Cookies and Peach Coffee Cake. In addition to creating nutritious recipes that maximize every ingredient and use economical cooking methods, Ms. Brown gives tips on shopping; on creating pantry basics; on mastering certain staples pizza dough, flour tortillas and saucy extras that make everything taste better, like spice oil and tzatziki; and how to make fundamentally smart, healthful food choices.  Leanne's book is for everyone who wants to watch their pennies and their health!
