SUMMARY:

A memoir of food and friendship “combining the warm-heartedness of Tuesdays with Morrie with the sensual splendor of Julie and Julia” (Booklist, starred review). Isabel Vincent first arrives at Edward’s New York apartment to check on him as a favor to his daughter. She has no idea that the nonagenarian baking a sublime roast chicken and a light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life. But their meeting comes at a moment of transition for each of them: Edward wants nothing more than to follow his late wife to the grave, while Isabel is watching her marriage unravel. As Edward and Isabel meet weekly for the glorious dinners that Edward prepares, he shares so much more than his recipes for apple galette or the perfect martini, or even his tips for deboning poultry. Edward teaches Isabel the art of slowing down, taking the time to think through her own life—cutting it back to the bone and examining the guts, no matter how messy that proves to be. Dinner with Edward is a book about love and nourishment, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M. F. K. Fisher, “sustain us against the hungers of the world.” “A rare, beautifully crafted memoir that leaves you exhilarated.” —Rosemary Sullivan, author of Stalin’s Daughter “This is a memoir to treasure.” —Booklist (starred review)

SUMMARY:

‘Everyone deserves her own Edward – and everyone deserves to read this book.’ When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Thinking she is merely helping Edward’s daughter by agreeing to check in on her nonagenarian dad, Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life. As Edward and Isabel meet weekly for the glorious dinners Edward prepares, he shares so much more than his recipes for apple galette, the perfect martini or tips for deboning poultry. Edward is teaching Isabel the luxury of slowing down and taking the time to think through everything she does, to deconstruct her own life, cutting it back to the bone and examining the guts, no matter how messy that proves to be. Dinner with Edward is a book about love and nourishment, sorrow and joy, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M.F.K. Fisher, ‘sustain us against the hungers of the world’.

SUMMARY:

The author of the beloved classic Italian Family Cooking teams up with his daughter for a book that is part recipe treasury, part family memoir--and totally irresistible! James Beard Award winner Ed Giobbi's passion for fresh, seasonal fare, lovingly prepared, was nourished in a family to whom food was a sacred pleasure. Craig Claiborne, the late New York Times food critic, said, "Some of the most memorable meals of my life have been taken in Ed's kitchen." Now, 30 years after Giobbi's first cookbook, Italian Family Cooking, became an instant classic, he and his daughter, Eugenia Bone, have produced a wonderful companion volume on the art of preparing fabulous seasonal meals. Taking as inspiration the Italian countryside in Liguria where the Giobbi family has its roots, Italian Family Dining will show the reader how to combine dishes to put together unforgettable spring, summer, fall, and winter repasts. Scrambled Eggs with Scallops and Morels, Mesclun Salad, and Strawberry Flan make a delicious quick spring meal, while Grilled Duck Breast, Warm Beet and Potato Salad, and Sliced Pears with Cheese combine spectacularly for a fast fall dinner. Throughout the book Eugenia Bone shares warm family reminiscences--and the recipes for Italian-style dining are simple but elegant, created by one of America's great home cooks, Ed Giobbi.
