Laurie Colwin's Home Cooking books are the standard (well my standard) that all other cooking essay books are measured against. This one is pretty good - the recipes are intriguing (I've already earmarked several to try). The best essays involved the author's memories of and stories about her father. The Chapter titled "The Mottling" had me weeping. When the author gets to planning her wedding, I found myself skipping pages ... reading about someone else's wedding is like hearing in great detail about someone's dream ... eh, not so much. The writing is fresh and lively. I look forward to reading more from this author (thankfully she has a blog! Yay!).
