The Wednesday Chef was Luisa Weiss’ answer to homesickness. Pining for her father’s home in Brookline, her grandparents’ Italian garden, and especially her mother’s cozy Berlin apartment, she cooked, entertained—and wrote a blog. Time passed and Weiss found her work attracted “a loyal base of empathetic readers.”

Yet, Berlin lurked in her memories, whispering her name. Finally, after a weekend visit, Weiss “took the plunge, broke off her engagement, quit her job and decided to move back, discovering a city that had changed as much as she had.”

Luisa Weiss will be discussing and signing My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story (With Recipes) at Vroman’s on Friday, September 25th at 7 p.m.

Note: Vroman’s requires that people wishing their book to be signed purchase one copy from their store ($26.95), and one additional copy for every 3 that they bring from home. Vroman’s says to save the receipt as it will be checked as people enter the signing line.
