Two parts memoir
one part cook book
These essays are warm and generous, as are Fromm's recipes and cooking advice. You will find everything in here, from baking for a Nobel Prizer winner to courting a kidnapper; mastering a master souffle to roasting a chicken in milk.
Fromm writes about life with tenderness and tenacity, and about food with a devotion and sensuality that will inspire even the most kitchen-phobic among us to bolt for our sautè pans.
