A wonderful, poetic, philosophical and inspirational ode to food, eating and cooking. There are great recipes interspersed within the chapters.

I learned plenty of cooking techniques from Tamar Adler’s philosophical essays on cooking, and added a few great recipes to my repertoire (such as a Salsa Verde that improves just about everything it touches). But I didn't just adore this book for its practical offerings. Adler’s writing is exquisite and expresses so well the deep satisfaction one can get from creating meals with available food and simple tools.

Few people can turn the act of boiling water into poetry yet this author does! I loved this book, I savored it right up until the very last page.

I liked this a lot and may have to buy it. Her attitude toward cooking is realistic, not too precious, and creative at the same time.

This book has changed how I think about cooking and ingredients. I actually went and bought my own copy. Adler is quite opinionated and you need to be prepared to disagree with her, but she makes (quite firmly) a bunch of points about how we should relate to food. For example, all omelettes are quick and easy (in her view) so you're better off not buying a magazine that features "10 new quick and easy omlettes" and instead spending money on your ingredients.

I think it would be entertaining just as a read, but I found it to be more than that. It really did make me think in new ways about the weekly trip to the farmers' market.
