From the Publisher:
Weaving together memories, recipes, and wild tales of years spent in the kitchen, Home Cooking is Laurie Colwin’s manifesto on the joys of sharing food and entertaining. 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.
The late fiction writer Laurie Colwin provides an endearing treasury of culinary memories, recipes and tips.
Author Bio
Laurie Colwin
Laurie Colwin was born in Manhattan but grew up in Chicago and Philadelphia. She attended Bard College and Columbia University, after which she worked for literary agents and at various New York publishing houses. At the age of 25, she sold her first story to The New Yorker. She also worked as a translator for Isaac Bashevis Singer and wrote for magazines, including a position as a Gourmet magazine food columnist. In addition to fiction, she wrote two food-oriented memoirs, HOME COOKING and MORE HOME COOKING. In 1987, Colwin was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship. She was married for the last nine years of her life to Juris Jurjevics, editor-in-chief of the Soho Press, and had one daughter, Rosa Audrey. To sum up Colwin's writing, Judith Rascoe said in Rolling Stone: "I can't give you plot summaries that you can retell at your next party. But when you've read the stories, your next party may seem to you as if Laurie Colwin had written it."
