From the legendary editor of some of the world's greatest cooksincluding Julia Child and James Bearda delightful book about the joys of cooking for one. In a book as passionate as it is practical, Judith Jones demonstrates that cooking for one presents unparalleled possibilities for both pleasure and experimentation: we can cook with whatever ingredients appeal to us, using farmers' markets and specialty shops to enrich our palates and improve our health; we can feel free to fail, since the meal doesn't have to be perfect (we have only ourselves to impress); and we can use leftovers to innovatethe remains of beef bourguignon are transformed into a ragu, pork tenderloin becomes a stir-fry, red snapper is reinvented as a summery salad. Jones is both an instructor and a mentor, suggesting basic recipes for itemssuch as marinara sauce or homemade stockthat all cooks should have on hand, teaching us how to improvise through ingenious weekly menus, and supplying us with a lifetime's worth of tips and strategies. The Pleasures of Cooking for Oneis a vibrant, wise celebration of food and our own company.
