I really enjoyed this book, but had some issues with it which detracted from my reading experience.

First, is it a cookbook or an essay? I felt that it was primarily an essay-type book, and read it lying in bed at night, but there were many places where I wanted to jump up and try to cook things. I think if I'd read it in the kitchen, I might have had a hard time using it because it's not quite arranged as an instructional book. If I'd bought it as a printed, bound book I would probably stick it in the kitchen for a while and go back through some of the chapters with tools and ingredients at the ready.

I read this as a Kindle e-book, and there were a heck of a lot of formatting errors for a professionally published book. Lots of words got stuck together with no space in between. Worse, in the recipes many of the fractions were unreadable -- if it wasn't 1/4 or 1/2, it was anyone's guess. It's not the author's fault, but still very annoying.

I would read it again and recommend it, with the aforementioned reservations. The cooking advice seemed sound, but I have yet to road test most of it. I did try making beans as recommended here and the results were a big improvement over my previous efforts (which had been perfectly edible, I thought). ( )

This is more of a philosophy of cooking than a cookbook or collection of recipes. I am not likely to use any of these recipes but I enjoyed and will apply the basic principles of ease, frugality and joy in the craft. It changed the way I approach meal planning. ( )

I think I expected this book to be more of a beginner’s guide, which it emphatically is not. Adler assumes that her users know their way around a kitchen. Her ideal reader seems to be one who often cooks from recipes but finds cooking too much trouble to do often. Some parts of the book were a little off-putting for that reason—I’m more of a beginner—and parts were off-putting because she assumes that everyone likes everything (capers, olives, fennel, cilantro, etc.).

So my approach was to try the parts I understood. First, I salted the water when I made pasta. Definite improvement! Then I added salt, olive oil, and various vegetable odds and ends when I cooked beans in the crock pot. Oh my goodness, I had no idea beans and the water they cooked in could taste so good! I’m looking forward to trying some of her more advanced ideas, like possibly making confit. Adler has a very engaging writing style; this lady loves cooking and food, and describes it with a sort of economic detail that makes everything sound delicious and worthwhile. And while she recommends buying some relatively expensive foods, like locally raised chicken, she does not assume that the reader has a bunch of fancy pots. One sharp knife and whatever odds and ends of pots you might have are enough to get started here. ( )

Enjoyable and entertaining. Ms Adler writes so that you are interested in trying her food.
Her rice pudding is divine.

This is not a cookbook, this is living and cooking alongside your grandmother, receiving all those invaluable bits of wisdom, tasting the broth, discussing the food and learning not to waste a thing in the kitchen. It also has some recipes in it. It is poetic, the words have a rhythm and flow and are a pleasure to read. I found it affirming, since I already practice many of the suggestions written here (I've been cooking for 34 years on my own). I also found it inspiring, encouraging me to go further and giving me terrific ideas to do so.
This would be a wonderful book for someone starting their cooking life, but who never had a grandmother to cook alongside. It is grounding, and removes fear from the equation. My grandmother and mother lived and cooked like this; I have been blessed to have them.
I love the index at the end, since many great ideas are mentioned in passing and I will want to go back to them at some point. Though I don't agree with all of Adler's conclusions, she doesn't ask me to. She only asks me to consider them. Like any friend or mentor would. ( )

Adler, Tamar. An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace. Scribner. Oct. 2011. c.272p. index. ISBN 9781439181874. $25. COOKING
Adler, who opened a farm-to-table restaurant in Georgia and cooked at Chez Panisse (Alice Waters here contributes a foreword), offers insight into how to make simple foods into enjoyable meals, e.g., food scraps that are normally thrown away are instead used for soups, bones for stock, and orange peels for marmalade. In the chapter “How To Boil Water,” she encourages readers to put on a pot of water, then figure out what to throw in it—vegetables, pasta, potatoes, beans, even meat—increasing flavor with each item. Adler devotes a chapter to eggs, which can easily create a meal via a variety of cooking techniques, and she includes a recipe for Tortilla Española (simply potatoes, onions, and eggs). She also offers inspiration for making an exciting salad from in-season produce. VERDICT Working with mundane, simple foods and easy cooking techniques, Adler shows readers how to stretch their ingredients and add flavor to foods. This is not a cookbook but a narrative featuring easy-to-implement ideas that will encourage seasoned cooks to experiment and make mealtimes pleasing experiences.
