The New Steak!

*Elissa Schappell* writes in the March issue of Vanity Fair:
"The recipes in Cree LeFavour's The New Steak will bring out the beast in shy carnivores and spur tenderloin-holics to tattoo her name on their rump roasts."



Cree LeFavour is a writer, cook, baker, gardener and lapsed academic. She has written four cookbooks of her own including PORK (2014), James Beard Award Nominated FISH (2013), POULET (2012), and THE NEW STEAK (2008). She has also ghost written books and proposals for chefs and artists. Her recipes and writing on food have appeared in The Times of London, Bon Appetit, O, The Oprah Magazine, and Harper's Bazaar. Before she began writing professionally Cree ran her own baking business, Pink Frosting, and taught writing at New York University. She was born into a restaurant family in Aspen, CO (her father is the chef Bruce LeFavour) and moved to central Idaho at the age of nine. There she helped tend the pigs, layers, meat birds, dairy cows, goats, geese and ducks that supplied the family's restaurant kitchen. Cree has a B.A. from Middlebury College and a Ph.D. in American Studies from NYU. You can find her dissertation on 19th century reading in America, Who Reads an American Book? on Amazon and her articles on Bronte's "Jane Eyre" in Book History (2004) and on Thackeray's  "Vanity Fair" at Romantic Circles (2006) on the web. She lives in Frenchtown, NJ with her husband, Dwight Garner, and their children, Penn and Hattie. Her memoir, LIGHTS ON. RATS OUT. will be published by Grove Press in January, 2017.
