2 posts | 4 read | 1 to read
From her Italian American childhood through raising and feeding a growing family and cooking with her new husband, food writer Michael Ruhlman, Ann Hood has long appreciated the power of good food. In Kitchen Yarns, she details her life with essays and recipes, spinning tales of loss and starting from scratch, family love and feasts with friends, and how the perfect meal is one that tastes like home. "Hood's essays are like hot chocolate, cozy and warm. Her collection of meditations on food and life touches the big themes." -- New York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice "Ann Hood is a gifted storyteller. . . . [Kitchen Yarns is] perfect holiday season fare." -- People, Book of the Week "These tales of ingredients, recipes, and meals will lift your spirits." -- Washington Post "In this cozy read, Hood shares recipes that shaped her . . . and the poignant life lessons about loss, love, and friendship she learned in the kitchen." -- Real Simple

Pick up this book if you‘re a fan of memoirs as well as cooking. The author shares vignettes of her life and then ends the chapter with a recipe that reminds her of that story. I‘m definitely making this tomato pie!

I picked this book up at the Ohioana Book Fair this spring. It was free and it had the word “yarn” in the title, and being a knitter, I was excited to grab it. It turns out it‘s a book full of recipes and the author‘s life stories that she connects with certain foods. This turned out to be a happy surprise!
