On one of Aimee and Steve's culinary adventures through the boroughs of New York City, beginning with an appetizer of ceviche and ending with a search for the world's fudgiest brownie, the idea for Eat, Darling, Eat was born.

The website has expanded to include a podcast, a virtual cookbook, and live events. If you were to read all 500 (and counting...) stories, your heart would be warmed and broken, and you would come away appreciating the  remarkable constellation of experiences for mothers and daughters all over the world.
