|sometimes feelings are delicious.|
It's not often that you read a blueberry pancake recipe with teary eyes from a moving poem about loss. (Unless you read the Eat this Poem blog, in which case I suppose that's in the realm of normality.)
The combination of poems, stories, and recipes is a creative and novel twist to the traditional cookbook, adding feeling to the recipes and grounding the poetry in everyday practicality.
The whole endeavor feels delightfully classy, like you're walking around an art gallery sipping wine you can't pronounce -- but the recipes are often comforting recipes that are appropriate for beginners and chefs alike. (I am especially looking forward to testing out the mushroom and brie quesadillas.)
This would go well an any cookbook collection, and would make a fun conversation piece as a coffee table book.
I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
