Abstract:

"Laurie Colwin's food thoughts are like phone calls from a dear friend." 'The New York Times In this delightful celebration of food, family, and friends, one of America's most cherished kitchen companions shares her lifelong passion for cooking and entertaining. Interweaving essential tips and recipes with hilarious stories of meals both delectable and disastrous, Home Cooking is a masterwork of culinary memoir and an inspiration to novice cooks, expert chefs, and food lovers everywhere. From veal scallops sauteed on a hot plate in her studio apartment to home-baked bread that is both easy and delicious, Colwin imparts her hard-earned secrets with wit, empathy, and charm. She advocates for simple dishes made from fresh, organic ingredients, and counsels that even in the worst-case scenario, there is always an elegant solution: dining out. Highly personal and refreshingly down-to-earth, Laurie Colwin's irresistible ode to domestic pleasures is a must-have for anyone who has ever savored the memory of a mouthwatering meal. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Laurie Colwin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
