Home Cooking: A Writer in the Kitchen

Available

Description

'Everything food writing should be: funny, profound, inspiring and unaffected' Nigella Lawson

Weaving together memories, recipes, and wild tales of years spent in the kitchen, Home Cooking is Laurie Colwin's manifesto on the joys of sharing food and entertaining. From the humble hot-plate of her one-room apartment to the crowded kitchens of bustling parties, Colwin regales us with tales of meals gone both magnificently well and disastrously wrong.

Never before published in the UK, this is hilarious, personal and full of Colwin's hard-won expertise. Home Cooking will speak to the heart (and stomach) of any amateur cook, professional chef, or food lover.

'A feast . . . witty, no-nonsense . Home Cooking is a culinary companion as comfortable beside your bed as your cooker . It has an essay for everyone who loves to eat and demonstrates that home is where the heart is - and the stomach happiest' Observer

'Laurie Colwin's food thoughts are like phone calls from a dear friend' New Yorker

'Shrewd, witty and consistently enjoyable' Mail on Sunday
