    Review of Laurie Colwin's More Home Cooking

    I loved this book. I wish that I lived next door to this woman and she shared her bonhomie and food with me. I have made a few of the recipes with great success. Last night I made the Polenta with Hot Pepper (p. 63)and served it with the Succatash (p.61), and then the Happy Winter Fudge Cake (p.156) for dessert and everything turned out great. I was a little concerned about the cake as I was putting it together, but it worked. But even if you never plan on making any of the recipes, I would recommend this book just for the pleasure of spending some time with Laurie Colwin.

    I adore Laurie Colwin's food writing.

    There's a reason Ms. Colwin was a columnist for Gourmet magazine in its heydey. Her writing about food is incredibly evocative and clear. I have tried many of her recipes and they all work beautifully. I also enjoy Ms. Reichl's books, but Ms. Colwin is in a league of her own. She was really the first writer to write personally about food and home. I haven't found another writer I like better.

    Better than the 1st one

    This book is a bit better than her 1st food essay memoir. But still, in my book, Ruth Reichl is the queen of food memoirs.
