I’m so excited to share with you today’s guest on What You’re Craving- Hannah Howard. She is an amazing author who is able to encapsulate the trials, tribulations, heartbreak and glory of having and recovering from an eating disorder. Hannah and I dish about her new book, “Plenty” and her first book, “Feast” - both of which I devoured, pun intended. Hannah talks all about recovering from an eating disorder while working in the food industry, her surprise in finding out how common it is for people in the food industry to live a double life with their eating disorder, and how she learned to find peace and form a new experience of life through renegotiating her relationship with food. We get into the importance of tuning into what we’re feeling, breaking up with dieting, and acknowledging mess-ups as an inevitable part of the process. This is seriously a conversation you do not want to miss.


Hannah Howard is a writer and food expert who spent her formative years in New York eating, drinking, serving, bartending, cooking on a line, flipping giant wheels of cheese, and managing restaurants. Her memoir, Feast: True Love in and Out of the Kitchen, debuted as Amazon's #1 bestselling memoir in 2018, and she has recently released her new book Plenty: A Memoir of Food & Family. 


Hannah has a BA from Columbia University in Creative Writing and Anthropology and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine, VICE, SELF, mic Thrillist, Serious Eats, Bust, refinery29, Salon, and the Chicago Review of Books.
