    For those who love great prose and great food

    I discovered Laurie Colwin's books by reading a blog on the website of the (very sadly now lapsed) Gourmet magazine. I started by reading "Home Cooking" and then "More Home Cooking" and have moved on to her novels. If you like Barbara Pym novels, and if you like to cook and to think about food, you'll appreciate Laurie Colwin!

    A humorous and easy read

    While reading this book, you will feel like you are sitting at the author's table, having a cup of coffee and reminiscing. Colwin has a gentle style and can paint a picture for you, transporting you right into her life. Before you know it you'll be laughing over her account of picky dinner guests, tiny kitchens, weird ingredients, disastrous cooking failures, and happy surprises. A short, pleasurable read, it will definitely make you want to hop in the kitchen and whip something tasty up.

    Laurie Colwin where she loved to be - in the kitchen!

    I had always loved Laurie Colwin's fiction, and then I stumbled upon Home Cooking. With the same warmth and humor, Laurie Colwin invites you into her kitchen - combining stories of life and friendship with recipes that turn your kitchen into a cozy and welcoming place to spend time with family and friends. It is utterly charming - as was she.

    This woman is no Ruth Reichl

    NO ONE can live up to the wonderful food writings + memoirs of Ruth Reichl. This book by Colwin is poor at best. The essays are boring and give us no insight into Colwin's family, upbringing, and events that occured in her life. It is boring essays about cooking in a too small apartment kitchen or cooking pretentious boring bland food for her friends. The recipes included are too vauge, what is a large can of tomatoes, it is the 8 oz, 16 oz, or 28 oz can?!?!!?!?
