We now have signed editions of Treyf available! 

Elissa Altman, Washington Post columnist and James Beard Award–winning author of Poor Man’s Feast, has written a beautiful and powerful memoir about seeking truth, acceptance, and self in a world of confusion. From bacon breakfasts before visits to her Orthodox paternal grandparents, to her beloved, food-loving father and glamorous, self-starving mother, Altman’s childhood was filled with contradiction, as well as love. It took her decades to find her true self, but she eventually came to realize that neat categories do not exist in life. Like many, she is treyf: imperfect and rule-breaking.
