[Editor’s Note: If, dear reader, you come to Leite’s Culinaria exclusively for our spectacularly foolproof recipes, we have a surprise for you. And it’s called Notes on a Banana: A Memoir of Food, Love, and Manic Depression. See, at Leite’s Culinaria, we’re not just about recipes. We’re about all the countless and crazy ways food intersects our lives. As such, you’ll find a lot of thoughts and reflections and musings and even a rant or two on food on our pages. But Notes On A Banana is special. It’s the memoir penned by our publisher, David Leite, and it’s about to be published this spring. So kindly allow us to introduce ourselves to you a little more intimately. We think you’ll recognize some shared quirks and characteristics. Anyways, here’s what David has to say about it…]
Over the next several weeks, as we wait for my memoir to go on sale, I thought I’d slip you a few quotes from the book to give you a sense of what’s between the covers. Some are funny, some sad, others poignant. I’ll also be posting videos, clips from the audiobook (which I recorded last week) and an excerpt or two over on my blog. So stay tuned!
