Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More by Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson
Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More

K N, October 10, 2010

even a year later, this is the first cookbook I reach for when I want to make something seasonal and wonderful as a dessert. The gingered pear and raspberry pandowdy is the most-requested dish in our house! It actually makes me excited to watch the seasons turn because I know that this book will get me inspired about what to cook and how to entertain.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

Thinking back over which books have really made an impression, I think no book scared me so completely or reflected so well the fears, horrors, hopes and fascinations of living at the beginning of the 21st century.

Almost Meatless: 60+ Recipes That Are Better for Your Health, Better for the Planet by Joy Manning
Almost Meatless: 60+ Recipes That Are Better for Your Health, Better for the Planet

K N, November 23, 2009

What a disappointing book. I read the reviews online and was so eager to get and cook from it - only to find out that the recipes are, in fact, very meat heavy. The title is completely misleading - in fact, the book should be titled almost veggie-less. Perhaps for middle America, this book actually does represent some sort of shift in thinking about food and the centrality of meat, but for those of us fortunate enough to live in a city with excellent vegetarian and vegan cuisine, this book just doesn't even come close.

When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson
When Will There Be Good News?

K N, January 31, 2009

Kate Atkinson does it again - this smart, savvy novel -part mystery, part coming-of-age story, part love story is at times poignant, at times laugh out loud funny - always with Atkinson's sharp British wit and excellent eye for character - another great chapter in the story of Jackson Brodie. If you liked Case Histories or One Good Turn, you'll love this one - maybe the best of the bunch.

American Food Writing: An Anthology with Classic Recipes by Molly O'Neill
American Food Writing: An Anthology with Classic Recipes

K N, July 18, 2007

What a wonderful collection - what's great is the depth and breadth of it - there are old favorites, if you love food writing, like MFK Fisher, but there are other folks too, who you aren't going to find in your average collection of food essays, but who you'll be glad to read. Literally, something for everyone - so buy it in hardback and enjoy it for a long, long while.
