Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Beautifully designed and filled with Rupp's elegantly enticing photos, this book—based on Bramley's Eat Feed podcast on Slate—features an excellent and timely premise: cooking seasonally and locally during the cold months of the year. Bramley points out that in summer hordes of cooks and noncooks alike flock to their local farmers' markets.... But after these markets... disappear for winter... eager eaters displace their enthusiasm for the seasonal with excuses about ease. Intriguing, comforting recipes such as Chicken Breasts with Pumpkin Seed Filling and Butternut Sauce and Beet Fries with Blue Cheese Sauce could inspire readers as intended. The book is divided by menus rather than meals, and finding an appropriate recipe in such menus as guy fawkes and highlands hogmanay can be a challenge. There are many gems to be found, however, like Chocolate Beef Stew with Butternut Squash and Amaranth, or Honey-Ginger Carrot and Parsnip Latkes with Crème Fraiche, among many delicious fall and winter dishes—and it's a lovely-looking addition to a collection. (Oct.)

More About the Author

Anne Bramley's first cookbook, Eat Feed Autumn Winter: 30 Ways to Celebrate When the Mercury Drops, was named one of the best food books of 2008 by Epicurious. With her dedication to seasonal eating and entertaining in the colder months, Anne encourages cooks to revel in ingredients such as pears, parsnips, and kale and to be ready to put on a quick and comforting spread at the drop of the first snowflake.

Anne is the host of Eat Feed, which was selected by Slate.com as one of the best podcasts of 2005. Praised for an approach that is both scholarly and quirky, the podcasts delve into topics as diverse as 500 years before Jell-o, eating green in the Midwest, and Anglo-American relations through cookies and biscuits. The podcast was singled out by The Boston Globe and Saveur, referencing its "delightfully food-geeky segments" (Globe) and "folksy, bookish vibe" (Saveur).

Anne studied English Renaissance literature and food history while working on a BA and PhD at the University of Chicago. She and her family live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where they eagerly await the next snow day. Recipes, podcast episodes, and a food blog are available at www.annebramley.com and www.eatfeed.com.

I can't say enough good things about this cookbook. It's beautifully designed, the photography is outstanding, the writing witty and informative. And yet it remains a very approachable book, and the recipes that I've tried are all outstanding. I've written a longer review and included several recipes from the book at: [...]

this is a super cool cookbook.

i am not a master chef by any means, and yet i desire to cook healthfully and seasonally, and make food that is inspiring without being so difficult. well, this book is it!!

first off, it is a joy to read: there is both humor throughout the book and great factual info on veggies, meats, other ingredients, and seasonality; it's also great to look at: the photos are great! the larger size format of the book is comfortable and well designed, and thus pleasurable to read.

the content is inspired: chef Anne Bramley (of the EatFeed Podcast) provides meals, not just individual dishes, and as a plus there are great little accompaniments such as unusual and sometimes funny drink recipes and desserts that truly go well with the meal: ex-lambswool punch!, easy home-made ice creams...

the recipes seem mostly UK-based and ''comforting''(it IS a fall/winter book afterall)--but before you think heavy and starchy--NOT!
Ms Bramley manages to make scottish and english dishes hearty and healthy yet still light--i think it's the great ingredients and unusual english spicing/herbing instead of the over-emphasis on potatos, starch, corn starch, and breads that so often seem a big part of UK cooking. i find that the fats used are combined well with vegetables and other ingredients and they add to, rather than taking over the meal.
there are great versions of savory pies, pasty(!) and souffles and savory meat dishes; yet the vegetables and fruits in general shine in this book. to me it seems that this would be the original cooking of old in the UK, where more greens, veggies, and slow cooking as well as fresh, original ingredients were used. chef Bramley adds her own in the superb combinations of meats, veggies, spices and herbs.

Despite not being a whiz in the kitchen, I do like to cook and Eat Feed Autumn Winter is hands-down my favorite cookbook because the recipes in this book do not require expertise yet yield results that would belie that fact. Some of the recipes, the Whitefish Chowder in particular, are go-to standards; others, such as the Pork Chops (I can't remember the whole title right now and am having a glass of wine) are more for when my (vegetarian) boyfriend and I are entertaining. The division of recipes into thematic menus is brilliant, if only because it makes it easier to find what one is looking for. However, the absolute delight of simply perusing this book as if it were a coffee table book on eating in the winter through time and countries is inestimable. Despite having owned it for four years now, I still like to sit with a cup of coffee and just leaf through the pages, fantasizing about which of the few recipes I haven't made will be next to try, and which favorites I will be making again soon.
