we got a sizable & lively crowd for my “Hungry” event yesterday evening in Detroit, and it certainly didn’t hurt that @flowersofvietnam beverage director @marlowejohnson warmed up the audience with a couple of cocktails that nodded toward parts of the book; here’s the Shaky Oaxacan, with mezcal & tequila & tomatillo & corn & palm sugar & (naturally) mole bitters, as composed by the team from the @shinolahotel’s Evening Bar; thanks to @devita_davison for her charismatic moderating & to chef & @nomacph Mexico veteran @george.azar.detroit for chiming in #mezcal #cocktails #detroit #booktour #roadtrip #mexico #hungrythebook @esquire

is there a lovelier phrase than “room service pizza”? don’t worry, @sintumuang, I’m finishing my @esquire column now in between bites of @sanmorellodetroit pie before my #hungrythebook talk this evening at Detroit’s @shinolahotel with @devita_davison & @george.azar.detroit #detroit #pizza #deadline #lunch #booktour #roadtrip #michigan

one of the most humbling & gratifying elements of this “Hungry” experience has been receiving kind words about the book from @daniwriter & @kate.christensen100, two authors whose work I have devotedly devoured over the years; thanks again, Dani & Kate! + more “Hungry” events are afoot in the coming week: this afternoon at 3 at @bookhampton in East Hampton; Tuesday evening at the @shinolahotel in Detroit with @devita_davison & @george.azar.detroit; and Thursday evening at @murmrr in Brooklyn with @ruth.reichl & @mliving2 (!!!) #hungrythebook #booktour #eeeeeats #noma #reneredzepi #bookstagram

I don’t know what we were thinking bringing twin toddlers to the Southampton @santambroeus on a summer Saturday, but the vitello tonnato was delicious & the restaurant staff couldn’t have been more compassionate #southampton #summer #booktour #parenting #italianfood #hungrythebook @esquire

#fbf this floral butterfly is the first course in the current Plant Kingdom menu at @reneredzepinoma’s @nomacph in Copenhagen; the last words of my book, “Hungry,” are (as spoken by @reneredzepinoma) “It can change. It can change. It can change.” #hungrythebook #noma #reinventyourself #risk #eeeeeats #copenhagen #butterfly (relish your weekend, friends) 🙏🏻

so wildly proud of my daughter, Margot, who just finished a summer session studying linguistics, and now we’re at the Providence @shakeshack & she’s schooling me on what linguistics actually is #summer #family #roadtrip

#tbt “Hungry,” my new book, has been out for only a week, but I’m overwhelmed by the scores of messages I’ve been receiving from people who have been moved & entertained by the book; many readers tell me that their favorite scene is the one where I go to eat at @nomacph for the first time and my dining companion, Grant Gold, is (spoiler alert) running (very) late; just so you know, yes, that really happened & @grantagold is a real person — a brilliant designer & thinker whom I hope you will all follow here on @instagram; what you see here in the first frame is the start of that very scene, when @reneredzepinoma is wondering where the hell Grant may be; in the second frame, Grant’s gracious response to the scene! #noma #copenhagen #eeeeeats #hungrythebook #bookstagram #punctuality #summerreading

“Hungry” comes out a week from today & we’ve got a Rolling Thunder Revue-style book tour lined up, with chefs like Danny Bowien, Claudette Zepeda, Iliana Regan, Malcolm Livingston II, Sonja Finn & George Azar joining me in conversations around the country, as well as incredible interlocutors such as Ruth Reichl, Jenn Harris, Melissa Clark, Devita Davison, Stephen Satterfield, Hillary Dixler Canavan, Jason Tesauro & Bridget LeRoy; I hope you’ll swing by & say hi! (more specifics about each event if you go to the @penguinrandomhouse page online) #booktour #hungrythebook #noma #reneredzepi #bookstagram #books

roast beef roll-ups as part of the all-day summer menu at Prune in the East Village; in spirit this resembles the sort of dish I might make for myself at home while writing on deadline in my pajamas, except that this version is significantly more delicious #eastvillage #roastbeef #lunch #newyorkcity @esquire

I love diners

TheGordinier

I love bookstores & I have an annoying habit of dropping into them randomly to introduce myself (“Hungry” is coming out in a week, after all), but the catch (from the standpoint of my wallet) is that I always wind up departing with fresh books of poetry #bookstagram #books #poetry #summerreading

#tbt I’m guessing you’ll be seeing a lot of this new @nomacph Plant Kingdom dish on @instagram this summer: it’s called “green asparagus preserved in mold,” with the spears encased in white mold á la Camembert & accompanied by an herb salad with a dressing that somehow reminded this California boy of green goddess #copenhagen #noma #reneredzepi #denmark #eeeeeats #tasting menu #vegetarian @esquire

I met @sanchezrosio when I dined at @nomacph for the first time in 2014; she has gone on to open some must-visit Mexican spots in Copenhagen ( @hijadesanchez & @sanchez_cantina); she’s the coolest and you’ll get a chance to travel with her through Mexico and learn about her insights & instincts as a chef in “Hungry,” my upcoming book #copenhagen #mexicanfood #denmark #mexico #hungrythebook

#tbt one of the fun scenes in “Hungry,” my forthcoming book, if I do say so myself, involves a wild picnic that took place in 2016 basically in @reneredzepinoma & @nadinelevyredzepi’s backyard in Copenhagen, with chefs like @kylie_kwong, @dannybowienchinesefood, @alexatala, @prosciuttosnacks, @jacquespepinfoundation, @dcpatterson, @angela.dimayuga & @bobech spontaneously cooking together on a summer evening; here’s one of those people, the great @chefjoseandres, applying magic to some mushrooms #copenhagen #hungrythebook #hungry #picnic #denmark #chefs #bookstagram

in tonight’s episode of “Jeff’s Random Kitchen Experiments After the Babies Go to Bed,” I made tacos with black beans, avocado, roasted fennel (#plantbased) topped with some of this @flybyjing Sichuan chili crisp #tacos #dinner #cooking @esquire (not sure the fennel worked in the 🌮 but now I’m eating extra chili crisp with a spoon)

thegordinier

well, hello, here is some fried chicken that they serve at @bltomorrow in Houston, Texas — another one of @esquire’s freshly announced Best Bars in America, class of 2019 (cooking courtesy of @tetsujustin & crew) #texas #friedchicken #bars #bestbarsinamerica #barsnacks

thegordinier

the decision to include @brunettewinebar (in Kingston, New York) among @esquire’s 2019 Best Bars in America was an easy one for me — I fell in love with the place from the first second that @lfonda & I stepped inside (with twin babies in tow) #wine #bars #bestbarsinamerica #catskills #roadtrip

I hope you pick up this new summer issue of @esquire not just for that beautiful cover, and not just for @michael_hainey’s Q&A with the dudes on the cover, and not just for my rant about why burrata has come to signify everything that is boring about American restaurants, but because the issue also features (courtesy of @sintumuang & myself) the magazine’s annual list of the Best Bars in America, including (congratulations!) @ludlowliquors, @brunettewinebar, @lucindaseattle, @thelindenroom, @expatriatepdx, @bltomorrow, @ruffian_nyc, @manolitonola, @katanakitten_nyc, @youngjoni_mn, @hopsinglaundromat, @verjus_sf, @barleatherapron & more...! #bars #cocktails #print #magazines #burrata

I eat a lot of oysters, as you may’ve noticed, but I think my favorite oyster of the year has to be this one, prepared tonight by chef @edouardojordan, visiting from Seattle & cooking at @bennorestaurant in the kitchen of his friend @jonathanbenno; it’s a shigoku oyster served with buttermilk & grains of paradise, a.k.a. alligator pepper, a spice from Africa #oysters #spice #chef #seattle #newyorkcity @esquire
