WATCH: Leanne Brown and Hawa Hassan on Writing Food Through the Lens of Self-Care
Hosted by Greenlight Bookstore
Leanne Brown’s wildly popular, IACP award-winning and The New York Times bestselling cookbook Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day showed us that kitchen skill and resourcefulness, not budget, is the key to great food. Greenlight is delighted to welcome Brown back for the launch of her new cookbook. Good Enough champions a different yet complementary approach to food and cooking through the lens of self-care, mental health, and the embrace of imperfection—because who hasn’t eaten a handful of nuts over the sink and cold pizza for breakfast? Brown tackles the emotional barriers and shows us how to inventively and gently maneuver around the belief that we are not worth the effort it takes to cook, through heartfelt essays and 100 flexible, soul-satisfying recipes. In conversation with culinary powerhouse Hawa Hassan, author of the much-lauded In Bibi’s Kitchen, Leanne Brown joins Greenlight (virtually) to share the journey, philosophy, and joy of her newest cookbook.
