The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

Recipes and Wisdom from an Obsessive Home Cook

I’ve been a fan of Smitten Kitchen for years, so it’s delightful to see her recipes and photography pulled together into such a lovely package. Perelman’s style is enthusiastic and never fussy; the recipes are simple but attentive to just the right details. The cover photo—shortcakes with whipped goat cheese and tomato salad—is on my to-do list the moment tomatoes return to the local market.
