Homemade Life, Paperback Book

Homemade Life Paperback

Paperback

Description

Now in trade paperback, A Homemade Life is a memoir composed of recipes and stories from acclaimed blogger, Molly Wizenberg.

Molly's fresh and modern recipes--sometimes decedent, sometimes healthful-- appeal to the growing number of people tired of the processed foods who have become passionate about the art of cooking and the joy of eating meals lovingly prepared with the best ingredients.

But the book's appeal comes as much from the recipes as its truly remarkable writing. Wizenberg's food descriptions are luscious: Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Ricotta, Bourbon, and Orange Zest will always sound enticing, but when Molly describes how "the soft dairy richness of the fresh cheese gains depth from dark chocolate, and the chocolate's sincere, not-too-sweetness borrows intrigue from the boozy ricotta" you can't help but head straight to the kitchen to make them yourself. And unlike some excellent food-bloggers, Molly writes elegant but accessible prose that goes beyond the gustatory to access emotion.

Her writing is poignant without feeling cloying or obvious, and her novelist's sense for pacing keeps you turning pages.
