Lisa Wence, June 14, 2009 (view all comments by Lisa Wence)
Equal parts memoir and cookbook, this is a highlight of the late great Laurie Colwin's work (essential, in fact, along with Happy All The Time). Her fiction is full of good food and her food writing is full of good stories. My copy of this book is battered by continual use, particularly the brownies, always a hit. I return to this book often, as much to be in the presence of the writer as to cook from it. In the introduction, Ms. Colwin writes: "A person cooking is a person giving. Even the simplest food is a gift." If cooking is a way you give to the people you love, you should own this book.
