A Year Right Here

“We all know what happens to the list you make at the start of the year. But if everything had gone according to plan, Thomson’s book would be as straight-
forward as her original list. The twists and turns are what makes it—that and a solid recipe for fried chicken.”
Max Watman, New York Times Book Review

Armed with "The Here List" and a Type-A personality, Seattle-based writer and cookbook author Jess Thomson sets out to spend a year exploring the food of the Pacific Northwest with her family. With touching, funny, sometimes devastating stories that we all can relate to, Jess pulls the reader in as she abandons "The Here List" and learns that letting go can be just as important as holding on.
