Today has been the ultimate lazy day. My family is hunkered down in my apartment watching the rain (and maybe a little snow) outside. I’ve been rotating throughout the apartment – spending some time helping my mom cook, reading the paper with my dad on the couch, texting my sister (who is still in New York), and then sneaking off to my room to read under the covers.
My books for November are Cooked by Michael Pollan, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman and The Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace by Tamar Adler.
I’m almost done with Cooked and love it. Although, to be fair, I love anything Michael Pollan does. He’s my old man crush.
Do you have any great book recommendations? I would love to hear them!
Update: Cooked was great. After reading it you will want to head straight to the kitchen and make something amazing. You will probably try baking bread, cooking a stew, brewing beer, pickling vegetables…
I took The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. on the plane to California and finished it in one sitting. A story about about relationships and love between hipsters in Brooklyn (which could either be awesome or horrible), the book was incredibly well written. I think I will be recommending it at my next book club.
I started to read The Everlasting Meal but never finished it. I like the philosophy behind the book, but couldn’t really get into it. I’ll be sticking to Michael Pollan.
