Yesterday Megan mentioned one of my all-time favorite books in her discussion of picky eaters. Laurie Colwin's essays on food and cooking are short, funny, bracing, helpful, and never sentimental. She died far too young, and her essays deserve to be read widely by anyone who loves food, cooking, and good writing. Each chapter is a short essay (most originally published in Gourmet) on a single topic. My favorites include her meditations on potato salad, nursery food, feeding the multitudes, fussy eaters, and of course the classic: "Repulsive Dinners: A Memoir."
