Ann Hood Kitchen Yarns
Ann Hood is a gifted storyteller. So good, in fact, that she can even make a person reconsider her lifelong dread of ham-salad finger sandwiches. In this delightful compilation of essays and recipes, Hood waxes eloquent on her parents’ cooking, her own culinary education via The Silver Palate Cookbook and exactly what food means to her: family, comfort and deep connections to loves both lost and found. It’s perfect holiday-season fare, but be forewarned: You’ll want to keep both kitchen and Kleenex close at hand.
