Around the Table: Women on Food, Cooking, Nourishment, Love . . . and the Mothers Who Dished It Upfor Themby Lela Nargi
In this unique tribute to home cooking, Lela Nargi gathers around the table an array of women, from biologists and book editors to mathematicians and marketers, to discover why they feel that everything important in life-creativity, patience, time alone, time with others, nourishment both physical and spiritual-lies in the simple act of preparing a meal.
As they offer their favorite recipes, the fifteen women featured in this book describe the foods their mothers and grandmothers made for them and tell how they carry on the tradition of lovingly providing sustenance-and so much more-for their own families. Full of mouth-watering home-cooked recipes and stories of the quirky family food traditions that gave birth to them, Around the Table will delight any woman who relishes the act of putting food on the table for the people she loves.
