Home Cooking: A Writer In the Kitchen

Cooking with Laurie Colwin

Oh readers, how lucky we are to have had Laurie Colwin cooking amongst us for the 48 years before her untimely death. Her writing is the kind of feast for the senses we rarely experience even in the best of books about food.
I first read Home Cooking a few years ago, and as with the best of books it felt like having the most intimate of conversations with my truest friend. Literary and accessible. Hungry and often beautiful. And then, silly me, I lent the book to heaven knows who, never to be returned or indeed, read again. Until now.
For last night after I downloaded and devoured Family Happiness holed up in the fridge that is my bedroom, I discovered that Home Cooking was just $1.99 on Amazon.com too, and before I knew it, it was safely ensconced in my Kindle and this evenings entertainment was secured.
Read it to remember why food is family and family is love.

      I’ll have to look for a “real” copy or pop it onto my Christmas list then:) !

      Gill they really are, but for a reason I can’t fathom, the link I am providing is redirecting! Go to Amazon.Com and search for Home Cooking. You are looking for the copy with the orange cover and the kindle price is definitely $1,99. I am trying to understand why it is re-directing but it is definitely there. I would hate you to miss out because a link won’t behave itself!

      UPDATE: the links should work now, they were redirecting because of a plugin. Sorry.x

    And don’t forget it’s sequel, More Home Cooking, which is equally fantastic!

    1. Alison May says:

      Oh it really is Helena!x

    I love her books –if I ever find extra copies, I buy them as gifts for newlyweds and beginner cooks…
