Joanna Weinberg's love affair with cooking began at college. While she survived on pasta and more pasta, her sister would call from London with salacious stories of extra virgin olive oil, smoky pancetta and hunks of fresh Parmesan. Inspired, she started cooking for her friends, realising early on that a great meal was about the company as much as the food and that so many cookbooks forgot this most vital of ingredients.

About Ms. Joanna Weinberg

Joanna Weinberg has always been a passionate cook, tasting the flavours in her head before they get as far as the plate, but it wasn't until she spent a few years in New York without a kitchen that she realised how important it was to have friends round. Having returned to live in London, she now has a kitchen big enough to fit a table in it, and she cooks for friends all the time. Jo writes for a broad range of publications including Vogue, ES, Tatler and Easy Living, and about food in particular for The Times and Waitrose Food more

Review quote

'She's not just reader-friendly, she's reader best-friendly. After reading her book, you not only want to try out lots of things: you want her to come round and hang out in your kitchen, chatting ... I can't think of a better present than this book' Vogue 'Crammed with enticing writing about the rituals of cooking, Relish is also full of simple recipes for all eventualities. Weinberg's mission is to make entertaining entertaining, from romantic dinners a deux to magical summer picnics. This book is all about savouring the pleasures of food and delighting in the company you serve it to. Delicious' Marie Claire 'Should give Nigel Slater a run for his money. It's all about generosity and unfussiness - reminding us that cooking for mates should never be about panicking or showing off' Guardian 'Sumptuous lifestyle book ... read and emit small, satisfied coos' Sunday Timesshow more
