I always love your guides! I fell in love with Nigel Slater when I got Tender and everything he writes makes my heart happy (maybe a bit hyperbolic, but I do love the man). The Christmas Chronicles is on my list.
What a fun list! I only recently discovered your blog (I know, where the hell have I been?!) I got “Dining In” as soon as it was published and I’m so in love with it! The Fennel-Rubbed Pork Chop for Two is so flavorful, and I adored what was supposed to be the Persimmons and Pear Salad with Blue Cheese and Spicy Pecans, but I couldn’t find persimmons so I subbed apples. Still delicious – make extra pecans for snacking, they are divine. The Roasted and Raw Kale Salad – oh wow. I can’t wait to try more from that one. :)
polite suggestion that you publish a book recommendation list sometime. i read the luminaries on your suggestion and loved it. will be buying lincoln in the bardo as a gift for someone who will let me borrow it after :)
