Entertaining and inspiring

  • Dec 6, 2010
Born to New York Foodies - her mother was incapable of making the same thing twice - Clark's New York Times column, "A Good Appetite" traces the personal evolution of a dish from an idea or craving to a result the reader can understand and duplicate at home.

Her new cookbook expands on this conversational approach with humorous, succinct, anecdotal essays on dishes she learned from her mother, father, grandmother and more. Engaging and instructive, with chapters titled, "The Farmer's Market and Me (Garlicky Sesame-Cured Broccoli Salad), Learning to Like Fish (Porgy with Fennel Frond Pesto - a bony but sustainable species), My Mother's Sandwich Theory of Life ("everything is potential sandwich fodder"), Clark covers the gamut of food, from breakfast (Pesto Scrambled Eggs with Fresh Ricotta) to dessert (Karen's Peanut Butter Pie).

Sharing her deep knowledge of foods and how they complement one another, Clark (Chef, Interrupted, The Skinny) inspires as well as entertains. You will want to try every recipe.
