And considering that I personally own more than 5,000 books, that's saying a lot. Each of the stories in this book is beautifully written in tight prose, evocative and dreamy. I have to stop after I read each one so I can absorb it. I re-read Ms. Colwin's books, all of them, time and again and I never get tired of them. I have searched in vain for another writer as good as she was, and I haven't found one yet. If you enjoy cozy writing that is beautiful too, buy this book.

If you want pure comfort, in your books and in your kitchen, this is the book for you. Ms. Colwin's writing style was simply superb. And every single one of her recipes works.

Interweaving essential tips and recipes with hilarious stories of meals both delectable and disastrous, Home Cooking is a masterwork of culinary memoir and an inspiration to novice cooks, expert chefs, and food lovers everywhere.

She advocates for simple dishes made from fresh, organic ingredients, and counsels that even in the worst-case scenario, there is always an elegant solution: dining out. Highly personal and refreshingly down-to-earth, Laurie Colwin's irresistible ode to domestic pleasures is a must-have for anyone who has ever savored the memory of a mouthwatering meal. Part Memoir, Photo Gallery and Cookbook. Remembered recipes and events of Laurie Corwin's growing years, and early career to learn of her, her talents and hopes.
