Stir is a heartfelt examination of what it means to nourish and be nourished. At 28, Jessica Fechtor suffered a major aneurysm. She lost her sense of smell, the sight in her left eye and was forced to the side-lines of the life she loved. Her journey to recovery started in the kitchen, where she found peace in standing at the stovetop. Stir is a memoir about this journey, including some of the recipes that helped her repair both her body and her life.
