Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Warm, conversational, and exquisitely practical, Davies returns to the Jam Today series to share new recipes from her home kitchen — and stories about her experiences cooking for herself and her friends, family, and pets — during the best and worst of times. Whether she's describing how she set up her kitchen in an RV after a flood, encouraging young feminists to try cooking a baked potato, adapting an M.F.K. Fisher recipe to create “the world's simplest hollandaise sauce,” or singing the praises of her favorite local food purveyors, her infectious enthusiasm provides inspiration for everyone from trained chefs to those barely able to scramble an egg.

Featuring advice for omnivores and vegetarians alike about how to eat (and what to prepare) to survive natural disasters, cross-country moves, bereavement, holidays-gone-wrong, and even a spontaneous picnic, Jam Today Too provides all the ingredients for daily feeding of mind, body, and soul.

Review:

“Shift-causing in its practicality....What an original voice Davies is. She's all attitude. Jam Today Too is a treatise on how to develop a sane, honest, joyful relationship with food and cooking (and good red wine).” ForeWord Reviews

Review:

Jam Today Too is about cooking in real life, including cooking around destructive floods (two of them), having friends drop by, working with what's there when you're miles from town or the weather turns on you, cooking for a person whose taste is quite different from your own, and all the other ins and outs of eating and cooking while living. It's a book to be savored, not read all at once, though you'll be sorely tempted.” Deborah Madison, author of The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

Review:

“Waiter, there's philosophy in my soup! But Tod's ruminations on life, love, disaster, friendship, and home always find their way back to real, practical advice about how to cook with what you have, wherever your kitchen may be. Laughing with Tod at her loves and disasters will make you laugh at your own, and keep cooking.” Anna Thomas, author of Love Soup and The New Vegetarian Epicure

Synopsis:

Today the kitchen, tomorrow the world!

About the Author

Tod Davies is the author of Snotty Saves the Day and Lily the Silent, both from The History of Arcadia series, and the cooking memoirs Jam Today: A Diary of Cooking With What You've Got and Jam Today Too: The Revolution Will Not Be Catered. Unsurprisingly, her attitude toward literature is the same as her attitude toward cooking — it's all about working with what you have to find new ways of looking and new ways of being, and in doing so, to rediscover the best of our humanity. Davies lives with her husband and their two dogs, in the alpine valley of Colestin, Oregon, and at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, in Boulder, Colorado.

Gilion, August 5, 2014 (view all comments by Gilion)
Jam Today Too is a collection of essays in the tradition of MFK Fisher, Elizabeth David, or Jim Harrison -- reflections on what to eat, why to eat it, and how to make it. Davies' chatty style offers recipes along with anecdotes about when she made the dishes, including cooking in an RV after their house flooded, cooking for grieving friends, recreating childhood favorites, and cooking for solo meals. Reading the pieces feels like sitting at the kitchen counter with a glass of wine, chatting with your friend while she cooks dinner.
