About the Author

Canal House is more than just Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton's studio--it's their workshop, dining room, office, kitchen, lair, lab, and atelier devoted to good ideas and good work relating to the world of food. The duo writes, photographs, designs, and paints, but in their hearts, they both think of themselves as cooks first.

And every day they cook. In the middle of the day they stop their work, set the table simply with paper napkins, and have lunch. So it came naturally to write down what they cooked, thus bringing about the Canal House Cooking series.

This cookbook is a seasonal collection of Christopher and Melissa's favorite recipes--home cooking by home cooks for home cooks. With a few exceptions, they use ingredients that are readily available and found in most markets in most towns throughout the United States. All the recipes are easy to prepare, all completely doable for the novice and experienced cook alike. These two women believe the everyday practice of simple cooking and the enjoyment of eating are two of the greatest pleasures in life.

Format: Paperback
Canal House Cooking, Volume No. 3 arrived the other day, and we greeted it like a visit from an old friend who shows up just as you're starting to miss her.

Two years ago, when we first encountered Canal House Cooking, Volume No. 1, we had no idea that we were entering a relationship. Oh, we loved the book --- how could you not? For one thing, it was short: just 60 recipes, presented in a well-bound paperback. These recipes offered the unique tastes of the authors' "signature" dishes. Best of all, they were easy to make. Very quickly, this became our summer cookbook, the one culinary guide we took to the beach house we rented that was not in the Hamptons.

Canal House Cooking, Volume No. 2 arrived in November, 2009. It was, true to the Canal House mantra, a seasonal book. This time around, Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer defined winter as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Neither is a favorite holiday in this house --- our families don't gather, they disperse --- but we found many recipes that sustained us through the cold and the bleak.

By then, we were grooved --- we'll be grabbing these publications as long as Hirsheimer and Hamilton put them out. Because, three issues in, you could see this is a collaboration on the order of Lennon/McCartney --- they're completely complementary talents. Hirsheimer's photographs are food porn of the highest order; on the side of her photography career, she was executive editor of Saveur and co-authored four cookbooks. Hamilton co-founded our favorite restaurant in Lambertville, New Jersey, and worked with Martha Stewart and Cook's Illustrated.

I recently saw the gorgeous new hardcover that Canal House released and started hearing buzz about their seasonal publications. I couldn't leave it alone--I had to order one and see what all the fuss is about. I chose volume 3 which is winter and spring. We're sitting in the dead of winter now so I figured I'd get the most bang for my buck to choose a volume that would take mme through half a year.

Canal House does seasonal cooking all year long. They publish these slim little volumes which are charmingly not quite book length and way too big to be magazines. They are filled with reliable, simple recipes that make you look like a stellar cook. Up close photographs of food abound along with seasonal essays and watercolours done by one of the authors. They are fanciful, fun, and deeply useful.

I do not like the materials the book is made of. The paper almost seems to be thick, dull cardstock with perforations along the top and bottom aspects of the book. This dark paper does nothing to highlight the photographs everyone is always praising. While the authors do photograph the food in such a way that the food takes center stage,the quality of the paper detracts from the finished product. I wouldn't dwell on this aspect except that every review I've seen for these seasonal volumes talks of the great photography talent at work here so I wanted to take (slight) issue with it.

This volume contains recipes on: working up an appetite; teatime; salads; soupe du jour; eat your vegetables; gone fishing; birds of a feather; big pot cooking; meat; the pasta lesson; Easter lunch; and something sweet. All recipes are great for the home kitchen--these ladies are working in a fairly small kitchen themselves--but the skill level utilized varied from basic to moderately involved.
