The perfect gift...

arrived at my house earlier this week. It was sent by my friend Ann. Laurie Colwin is just a wonderful writer. The book is a collection of essays about cooking and eating. A good choice for me, as I like doing both.

I love that this is a food book with no orgasmic close up photos of perfect food. There are some sweet line drawing though. I love that Laurie Colwin is so bossy and opinionated. I don't always agree with her opinions, but I love how she formed those opinions.

Reading this book made me feel like I was eating a bowl of perfect apricots at the peak of their season.


  1. Oh my gosh, I was such a fan of Laurie Colwin back in the day. I adored her column in Gourmet magazine and would always read it first as soon as my issue arrived. I always felt such a connection to her through her writing. It was a tragic loss that she died so young.

  2. I love this book! I've read all of Colwin's fiction as well, but I'm saving "More Home Cooking" until I really need a food-loving pick me up one of these days. It's hard knowing that you're at a loved (and deceased) writer's last book.
