About this deal

If she is aiming to convert the noncook into a new lifestyle, she would do better to open up the possibilities using words that suggest and entice rather than prescribe.

Whether it’s extra potatoes or meat, citrus peels or cold rice, a few final olives in a jar or the end of a piece of cheese, she has an appetizing solution. This book does for practical home cooking what Nina Planck's REAL FOOD does for the consumer by providing a delightful (and much needed) dose of common sense and assurance about the choices we make about what we eat and how we prepare it into a meal. Everyone runs out and picks them, builds big fires, roasts bushels and bushels, makes romesco sauce, and gets drunk, eating as many as they can.

Before moving house I finally cooked up that bag of beans and it became a warm soft mash beside a Fiorentina-style steak, then part of a breakfast fry-up with apple slices, then (best of all! What doubtless is true, whatever your take, is that An Everlasting Meal: Cooking With Economy and Grace isn’t really a cookbook, as Alice Waters points out in the foreward, who adds that the book “gently reveals Tamar’s [Tamar Adler] philosophy.

If I could go back in time for just a couple of days, one of the things I'd like to do is sit down with my grandmothers and let them teach me all of those little secrets they knew about getting a meal to turn out just right. i make it out of bits of things that i've saved over the week for that purpose-- also without thinking about it much. I’d prefer to see most things prepared without much salt, if any, and those who need it can add it at the table.Inspired by the book, I sauteed up the shallot, bell pepper and garlic, added the tomato and let that cook down. I loved her paragraphs on roasting vegetables and what she has to say about adding "a few bunches of dark, leafy greens. It's an invaluable resource for home cooks looking to eat more mindfully and deliciously while throwing away less. Tamar Adler's guide to redeeming leftovers is endlessly useful and great fun to browse: it deserves an everlasting place in any kitchen. Not the usual recipe collection with prettily photographed dishes but a very useful everyday guide for people who are learning to cook, but also people who already think they know what they are doing.

Like an artsy genius friend you wish you had in college, Alder has the palate, confidence, and descriptive ease of greats like Alice Waters and Anissa Helou. Even though there haven't been any revolutionary tips so far, it has really inspired me to let go of recipes.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I really can't explain it, but my eyes feel totally opened by what are really some basic, yet sage, words of advice.

Reading her book is like sitting down with your grandmother as she explains to you exactly what she's doing and why.An Everlasting Meal is elegant testimony to the value of cooking and an empowering, indispensable tool for eaters today. She recommends turning to neglected onions, celery and potatoes for inexpensive meals that taste full of fresh vegetables, and cooking meat and fish resourcefully. Not to mention that it's also an extremely privileged stance; most of the people she's trying to reach will not be lucky enough to have their own chickens or have access to them (or afford them at a farmer's market). There's nothing particularly solemn about cauliflower stalks; capers do not taste anything like pebbles; and I have never been bewildered by a breakfast of cold pasta, no matter how delicious. She grew up knowing true hunger and learned how to prepare food with economy, but not with parsimony.
