Pedant in the Kitchen
Pedant in the Kitchen | Julian Barnes
7 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
This work is an elegant account of Julian Barnes' search for gastronomic precision. It is a quest that leaves him seduced by Jane Grigson, infuriated by Nigel slater and reassured by Mrs Beeton's Victorian virtues. For anyone who has ever been defeated by a cookbook.

It's an affair of sanity.

It's a fallible procedure in which each small success needs praising, preferably more than it deserves.

You can't really know what you want until you've got it wrong the first time.

I am only a third of the way through this small book, but it is making me laugh. If you have an affection for or obsession with cookbooks, this is a must read

We pulled out the sofa bed in the living room so I could have a cozier reading spot for the evening hours of #24in48
