it was ok
bookshelves: food
Read in August, 2011

I loved the illustrations in this book, and there were bright spots here and there. The title sums it up pretty well, but I'm not convinced that the majority of Americans rummage up a bit of fresh chervil to garnish their solo dinners with. Let's hear it for cold cereal!

But I do love reading about food. And I really liked this quote: "The food we offer might well lead to marriage, which shows how powerful cooking for another can be."

Kate On our first date, Mike grilled steak for me. I guess Deborah Madison is right!

Rachel Terry So steak is powerful, eh?

Stacy Steve would have never married me if he based his decision on how much I cooked for him. However, he did cook for me all the time.....

When I eat solo, it's sad. Cold cereal for sure or fruit. I would just go some place nice and let them rustle up the chervil for me.
