The Artists’ & Writers’ Cookbook: A Collection of Stories with Recipes edited by Natalie Eve Garrett
Whew, ok. Dali is fun, but back to Earth we go. This is a wonderful collection of short stories and essays accompanied by recipes. There are stories about nostalgia, and grief, and hope, and love, and laughter, and everything important. Like the stories, the recipes range from the serious to the more comedic, such as Crackers with Cheese (ingredients include Crackers: 1-80 and Cheese, any kind: one chunk). Contributors include Joyce Carol Oates, Neil Gaiman, James Franco, Sharon Olds, and 72 other luminaries. Curl up with this one and let it inspire you to write, to cook, or just to dream.
