Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. If your kid is bringing home a date you actually wish they would date, make this one to ply them with at the front door. Skip the prose unless you like reading books that name-drop shamelessly and make you wish that food writers were required to wash dishes at an IHOP for a couple months, just to know how the rest of the food world makes a living. Sep 23, Christine rated it it was ok. This is "Sex and the City" with food -- literally Mr. Totally self-indulgent on the author's part but hey, she convinced her editors at The New York Times to pursue it and later published the columns in this book.
She is a classically trained cook notice I did not say chef? It is somewhat pretentious but worth the read if you want to vicariously experience some of new York's and beyond's finest dining experiences t This is "Sex and the City" with food -- literally Mr. It is somewhat pretentious but worth the read if you want to vicariously experience some of new York's and beyond's finest dining experiences through the eyes of a privileged and somewhat pompous thirty-something. Some of her efforts even shame Martha so it is unlikely you'll walk away with anything to add to your recipe box.

You'd think her editor would have pointed that out to her. She is incredibly impressed with herself and is not at all ashamed at the snobbery that pervades every fiber of her being. I knew I'd be annoyed when she expected me to know and care about the difference between a foodie, a gourmet and a gourmand. I couldn't help cheering when Mr.
Latte secretly spiked her espresso with equal she didn't notice - point to Mr. The only time she ha Amanda Hesser comes across as wildly unlikeable. Also, a chapter on suffering from food poisoning has no place in a book about food. I don't care if you got it eating out with Jeffrey Steingarten. No one wants their tasty meal descriptions interrupted with a play by play of your digestive woes. Jan 31, Carlie rated it liked it Recommends it for: Not a bad book.
It has some yummy sounding recipes! The back cover claims twice that she's the next MFK Fisher. I beg to differ. Although she's fun and some of the recipes look quite tasty, she's no classic.
This is a fluff book. A cozy, Sex In The City style read that will have you dreaming of food, but its just fun. No real deep literary value here, and certainly no deep insight into life or eating. Just one fun chick's experience. Its kind of fun to read as a New York City area resident May 22, Emily rated it did not like it. At first I thought this book was just going to be filled with food snobbery, and it was. Not in a good way.
There were lots of interesting recipes throughout, some that I might actually try, so that was redeeming. Also I can't get over Mr. It sounds like a superhero's alter ego. Maybe he IS a super hero. Dec 08, Katie Koteen rated it really liked it. A fun, romantic story with great recipes along the way! Jan 11, Abigail rated it liked it Shelves: A cute story of a foodie meeting, falling in love with, and marrying someone who didn't feel the same way about food. A very interesting study of a relationship.
It had some fun stores, though it can be hard to relate to some of it, since I don't feel the same passion about food as the author does. But I do think I grew in appreciation, which was probably the point. I liked the author's insertion of little notes into some of the recipes for example, something like this: Dec 31, Antof9 rated it really liked it Shelves: Is there a genre for Chick Lit Foodie books?
There should be, and this would be at the top of the list. My review from BookCrossing: I needed something light and fun to read on the back deck yesterday when I finished working, and this was just the ticket! I had just put it into a pile of books to get ready for The Chef's Challenge hosted by eggiweg, in honor of her son. Little did I know I'd want to buy my own copy afterward! Yes, I could keep this one, but why not share it with the world and hono Is there a genre for Chick Lit Foodie books? Yes, I could keep this one, but why not share it with the world and honor eggiweg's son in the process?
The other reason I decided to do that is that the author has a LOT of recipes in this book from different sources, and she encourages people to try them, and then if they like them, buy the original to support those people. I'm just doing my part, and I'm impressed that she makes that point in her book: Anyway, about the book. I loved it, and want to be friends with the author! I love food and I love cooking and baking, but I'm definitely not qualified to be a foodie.
Not a NY one, anyway. But that didn't stop me from loving this book and wanting to start branching out further on my own! And I'm definitely going to be trying some of the recipes in my new copy! This book definitely inspired me. As I was preparing an egg fritatta something we've been having a lot lately as it doesn't require turning on the oven , I separated several of the egg whites from their yolks. I kept some yolks, but not all. Then I chopped up mushrooms, green pepper, and snipped little green onion tips into the pan.
A splash of olive oil and some salt and pepper on the veggies, and a little bit of heat. Over all that, pour the eggs. But after reading that book, what else could I do? I read another foodie book recently that didn't resonate with me at all.
Cooking for Mr. Latte: A Food Lover's Courtship, with Recipes
Perhaps it was just over the top pretentious? I don't know, but I really liked this one, and I'm so glad my friend sent it to me. This is the book I wish Under the Tuscan Sun had been. In fact, if Ms. Latte move to Italy, I'd buy whatever book she wrote next!
Dish It Out: Feeding the Lasses (A Chicklits Book) eBook: Kate Hart: dpvcasting.lfmgroup.it: Kindle Store
This book had a story and heart, and you care about the characters. That one did not: There were several parts of this book that either confirmed something I'd been thinking or doing all along, or that made me go, "yeah! I realized that's how my mom raised us, and I do that, too. From time to time I add to the list, but I really do have a good number of "company" meals I could fix, that don't make me nervous, that I know how to time, etc.
I also have a handful of things that people ask me to bring to different things. Everyone loves my Reuben dip and my guacamole. My brother-in-law is always asking me to make Puerco Pibil , and there used to be a man in my old office whose wife asked me to bake Mom Jarvis' Chocolate Cake for his birthday every year.
In addition, the author's comments about people not cooking any more echo multiple conversations I've had with my sister. Our mom stayed at home until my sister was in 4th or 5th grade, and then when she worked, it was to teach school. But during our entire growing up years, we were in cooking school with her. So much so that the one time she did use a cake mix yes, I said ONE time , we told her it was "cake for mothers who don't love their children". Anyway, we've realized that there is a whole generation of girls now who DO want to cook, but never learned, as they ate out or carry out or frozen stuff their entire lives.
And so, in our own little way, my sister and I are both teaching cooking classes. And the best part is that these women are learning that a good meal doesn't need to take 6 hours to prepare it can, for fun, but that's different. Some of the girls have told me that the recipes from cooking class have become the most popular recipes at their houses, and oft-requested by their husbands: Anyway, I think this book has no other choice but to be left at a coffee shop, so it'll be visiting Starbucks on my way to the dry cleaners.
And even though it's after 11 it's Sep 26, Bea Bezmalinovic rated it liked it. I remember reading Amanda Hesser's first column about her blind date with Mr. At the time, I thought it was amusing and witty.
