Prior to her untimely death, Laurie Colwin's insightful novels developed something of a cult following, as did her good-humored food columns for Gourmet Magazine. This book, like its predecessor Home Cooking, is a result of her lifelong passion for wonderful food, often things one wouldn't immediately think of: beets, pears, black beans, chutney. More than a cookbook, it's like a conversation with a longtime neighbor--one who can reminisce all day about the great meals she's cooked and eaten; one who sees cooking as a wonderful adventure complete with a pot of Curried Broccoli Soup at the end of the rainbow. It's for reading in bed as well as in the kitchen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“Laurie Colwin teaches us how to cook, eat, deal with disasters, write and live. We turn to her books for a kind of comfort and sustenance that only she can provide.” (Emily Gould, author of Friendship)
“The first time I read Laurie Colwin I knew I’d found the friend I’d always wanted to join me in the kitchen. Warm, funny, and unpretentious . . . Her recipes were easy and delicious. All these years later...I turn to Laurie Colwin. And she never lets me down.” (Ruth Reichl, author of Delicious!)
