An Everlasting Meal
This is not just a cook book, An Everlasting Meal is a book that makes you think about food at its core and instinctive cooking. By championing the amateur cook, the author Tamar Adler delves into the act of eating and celebrating food. Through insightful essays, Adler gives how-to lessons for the basic chef and does so with ease and romance. "In chapters about boiling water, cooking eggs and beans, and summoning respectable meals from empty cupboards, Tamar weaves philosophy and instruction into approachable lessons on instinctive cooking. Tamar shows how to make the most of everything you buy, demonstrating what the world’s great chefs know: that great meals rely on the bones and peels and ends of meals before them."
