Have you ever sat down and read through, not just the couple of recipes you like, but the WHOLE cookbook? I never have, well until now.
And there is more than just the book; McDonough, like many nonfiction authors these days, maintains a website The City Cook. The focus is on cooking in an urban, small kitchen
If you enjoyed reading “Julie and Julia” by Julie Powell, check out “The City Cook”. Although McDonough doesn’t share any inner life angst, this is a good choice for going beyond reading about someone else’s cooking struggles and getting your own hands working in your kitchen! Who knows, maybe next I’ll tackle “The Joy of Cooking”.
