It celebrates the magic and history of that place and the Fassett family who started this endeavor over sixty years ago. Throughout the book, readers will enjoy a collection of seventy-five tempting recipes, along with the history and personal memoirs of the author. Archive black-and-white photography is scattered throughout, alongside the breath-taking color photography of Sara Remington. It includes a bonus interview with the producer of the Sandpiper (1965), which was partially filmed on the Nepenthe terrace. Ultimately, My Nepenthe is a story about food, family and the culture of Big Sur. Bring some of the history and the legacy home to your kitchen. Softcover, 338 pages, published in 2015.
