The Nothing Fancy House Party

Raising a glass with New York's food-writing sensation.

Best-selling author and bona-fide internet sensation Alison Roman brings the style, ease and the good-time Brooklyn vibe of her new book Nothing Fancy from New York to Melbourne with an intimate stand-up party to remember.

Alison dedicated Nothing Fancy to her Grandma Prue, who taught her the power of crudités, white wine on ice “and a great orange-red nail”. She treats roasted carrots like Mexican street corn, strews her roasted eggplant with tiny chilli croutons and says “I love you” by roasting chickens. She is allergic to the word “entertaining” but loves having people over. She’s all about “unfussy food, unfussy vibes, and the permission to be imperfect, no occasion necessary”. Vanity Fair called her "the food writer whose recipes are the stuff of Instagram rapture"; she's all about max impact and minimum stress. It’s food – and living – for our moment.

It’ll be Martinis ahoy and snacks galore as Half Acre brings the book to life for Alison's legion of Australian fans.

Tickets are still available for Lunch with Alison Roman at Stokehouse on Friday 20 March:
