The Pleasures of Cooking for One by Judith Jones
The Pleasures of Cooking for One

Mirabai2, October 3, 2012

I am no kind of cook. I don't like cooking, have never liked it, and still don't like it, but I love this book. It's written with a combination of poetry and practicality that charms me. I love to read it just for the pleasure of reading, and one day I might cook something she describes. She makes it sound pleasurable and possible. I've had the book nearly a year now and am closer every day to actually cooking something. It's the only book I've ever read that really celebrates living alone. It's the only cookbook I own, and the only one I will ever need. She tells you everything--even including a list of the pans and utensils you need, and the size of each.
