This is a really beautifully written book. Tamar Adler transcends the conventional recipe formula, opting for a more natural and intuitive approach that has more soul than technical ability. There are no step-by-step instructions or long ingredients lists, instead, poetic and personal reflections on food, dotted with recipes of sustaining meals that champion frugality and cherish leftovers.

A modern day MFK Fisher, Tamar Adler describes the process of cooking with love and passion. The recipes elevate humble ingredients- eggs, onions, a pot of boiling water- into the true treasures they are. It's impossible not to head to the kitchen to try out her recipes every time you put this book down.

Only just a recipe book, in any traditional sense, this makes me want to cook more than any other book on this list.
