More Home Cooking: A Writer Returns to the Kitchen

2021 HarperCollins


This book is currently available for pre-order, and will be ready for shipping and instore pickup after October 12th 2021.

Newly Reissued

From the legendary Gourmet magazine columnist, the sequel to the revered collection Home Cooking, beautifully repackaged and featuring a new foreword for a new generation of readers.

Readers in the 1970s and 80s fell in love with Laurie Colwin’s urbane, witty novels and short stories, some of which were published in The New Yorker, along with her columns in Gourmet magazine, which formed the basis for two collections of food writing.

The first, Home Cooking, was published in 1988, followed in 1993 by the posthumously released More Home Cooking, a delightful mix of recipes, advice, and personal anecdotes from the kitchen and beyond. In this collection, she muses over the many charms and challenges of cooking at home in timeless essays on diverse topics, including “Desserts that Quiver,” “The Duck Dilemma,” “Real Food for Tots,” “Turkey Angst,” and “Catering on One Dollar a Head.”

As informative as it is entertaining, written with Colwin’s trademark down-to-earth charm and wit, More Home Cooking is a rare treat for fans of food writing and anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen.
