Weaving together memories, recipes, and wild tales of years spent in the kitchen, Home Cooking is Laurie Colwin's cookbook manifesto on the joys of sharing food and entertaining.
"As much memoir as cookbook and as much about eating as cooking." --The New York Times Book Review
From the humble hotplate of her one-room apartment to the crowded kitchens of bustling parties, Colwin regales us with tales of meals gone both magnificently well and disastrously wrong. Hilarious, personal, and full of Colwin's hard-won expertise, Home Cooking will speak to the heart of any amateur cook, professional chef, or food lover.
