    DescriptionFrom the legendary editor of some of the world's greatest cooks--including Julia Child and James Beard--a passionate and practical book about the joys of cooking for one. Here, in convincing fashion, Judith Jones demonstrates that cooking for yourself presents unparalleled possibilities for both pleasure and experimentation: you can utilize whatever ingredients appeal, using farmers' markets and specialty shops to enrich your palate and improve your health; you can feel free to fail, since a meal for one doesn't have to be perfect; and you can use leftovers to innovate--in the course of a week, the remains of beef bourguignon might be reimagined as a ragu, pork tenderloin may become a stir-fry, a cup or two of wild rice produces both a refreshing pilaf and a rich pancake, and red snapper can be reinvented as a summery salad. It's a fulfilling and immensely economical process, one perfectly suited for our times--although, as Jones points out, cooking for one also means we can occasionally indulge ourselves in a favorite treat. Throughout, Jones is both our instructor and our mentor, suggesting basic recipes--such as tomato sauce, preserved lemons, pesto, and homemade stock--that all cooks should have on hand; teaching us how to improvise using an ingenious strategy of building meals through the week; and supplying us with a lifetime's worth of tips and shortcuts. From Child's advice for buying fresh meat to Beard's challenge to beginning crepe-makers and Lidia Bastianich's tips for cooking perfectly sauced pasta, Jones's book presents a wealth of acquired knowledge from our finest cooks." The Pleasures of Cooking for One" is a vibrant, wise celebration of food and enjoying our own company from one of our most treasured cooking experts.

    Rosemarie Stabback This is the first book by Judith Jones that I've bought. It is a delightful cookery book. Chatty, simple and engaging. It celebrates the self and how being willing to cook for yourself is a pleasure and an exploration. by Rosemarie Stabback
