    Nice Job

    As a book and a cookbook collector, I am constantly fascinated with the food, literature connectiion. (From Proust's madelines on...) This takes some liberties, guessing at what recipes might have been and I'm not sure I like that aspect. BUT this is a lovely book in mnay other ways and I enjoyed the anecdotes.

    Good food and Good reading

    I admit it, my bookshelves are overflowing with cookbooks. But they are also full of books that contain wonderful descriptions of food. So here is another book, I will add to my collection and share with friends and family for Christmas. This volume combines two of my greatest passions, cooking and reading. With contributions from many famous authors, these two talented women have assembled some great recipes as well as unforgettable descriptions of meals. Who can forget any of the hilarious dinners that Stephanie Plum shares with her parents and the ever surprising Grandma Mazur? My mouth waters at the descriptions and I am itching to try some of these wonderful recipes. This is a wonderful book to curl up with and then when so inspired, start getting out the pans and and recreating the feel as well as the taste of these wonderful meals.

    Natural Comfort

    Good books and good food are unadulterated comfort for many of us. The painstakingly-researched, kitchen-tested recipes drawn from the contents of books loved by so many readers, coupled with the beautiful physical presentation of this cookbook make it a must-have for all who appreciate good books, good food, or both! I've already shared the news of this publication with friends and received enthusiastic responses, many of which make reference to their gift lists for upcoming holidays.
