Notes about this book

  • DKennedy on May 15, 2020

    A quarantine addition to my collection. Perfect for making use of the simple things we all have on hand these days. I am really enjoying this book. Fanny's words paint a loving, albeit eccentric picture of her mother's world, which in many ways reminds me of my own. The recipes peppered through the page are uncomplicated (with a few notable exceptions). I was inspired to make each and every one. So far I've worked my way through several - all were perfect in their simplicity. Vinaigrette, Roast Chicken, Stock, Garlic Chix Noodle Soup, Rose Petal Simple Syrup, Beans, Pasta, Aioli, Sandwiches, Eggs, Salmon.

Publishers Text

A cookbook and culinary memoir about growing up as the daughter of revered chef/restaurateur Alice Waters: a story of food, family, and the need for beauty in all aspects of life.

In this extraordinarily intimate portrait of her mother--and herself--Fanny Singer, daughter of food icon and activist Alice Waters, chronicles a unique world of food, wine, and travel; a world filled with colorful characters, mouth-watering traditions, and sumptuous feasts. Across dozens of vignettes with accompanying recipes, she shares the story of her own culinary coming of age and reveals a side of her legendary mother that has never been seen before. A charming, smart translation of Alice Waters's ideals and attitudes about food for a new generation, Always Home is a loving, often funny, unsentimental, and exquisitely written look at a life defined in so many ways by food, as well as the bond between mother and daughter.
