Everybody talks about eating seasonally. But that’s easier to accomplish in summer, when sampling nature’s bounty is as simple as a trip to the local greenmarket. Being a consummate (and truly seasonal) cold-weather cook takes real creativityand a deep enthusiasm for the fortifying pleasures of the autumn and wintertime table.
Anne Bramley has both. The host of the hit podcast Eat Feed heads straight to the kitchen when temperatures plungeeager to share her passion for food that will stoke your fire through all the months when the body craves warmth and the soul hungers for conviviality.
Going well beyond cookbooks that focus solely on the holidays, Eat Feed Autumn Winter finds reason to celebrate throughout the year’s twilit time. After helping you stock your pantry, Bramley presents meals to sustain you from the first chilly evenings of fall through the lengthening days that herald spring. With menus for enjoying the autumn harvest (Wheat Berry and Fig Salad, Feta-Olive Phyllo Cigars), celebrating the winter solstice (Lambswool Punch, Yule Log Cake), and warming up après ski (Onion Rösti, Cheese Fondue), the book is a cornucopianot just of delectable recipes but also of imaginative ideas for cold-weather entertaining.
