Dinner With Edward

Dinner With Edward

When Isabel Vincent’s marriage was falling apart, she befriended the father of a friend, a recently widowed man in his 90s. Over weekly dinners prepared by Edward, the two began to share their stories. Food as a metaphor for emotional and psychological nourishment is far from a new conceit, but there is much to find endearing in Vincent’s memoir. Edward delivers life lessons with the same apparent ease as he cooks delicious French recipes. 

Isabel joins us now to discuss this incredible story...
