Chef Barbara Lynch’s upcoming memoir has a release date set for fall 2016. The biography titled “Where Did You Come From” will be published by Atria books, and according to Boston Magazine, “will chronicle her journey from the projects of South Boston to her current stature as one of the country’s leading chefs, restaurateurs, and entrepreneurs.”
