Molly Wizenberg is a James Beard Award-winning writer. The award recognized her work on Orangette, a blog that started off about food, and ended up being about life. She’s also written a couple books, including A Homemade Life, which we discuss in this article.


If that’s not enough, she owns restaurants—Delancey and Essex—in the Seattle area, and she cohosts the Spilled Milk podcast with Matthew Amster-Burton.

The summer 2017 issue of Territory will be out next week, so ahead of that release, the editor is making some of the spring stories available online, including my interview/profile of Molly. The entire print version is now available, and I’ll post the uncut piece on the Work page after the summer issue is out. For now, here is The Rituals of Joy.
