Jam Today: A Diary of Cooking With What You’ve Got (revised and updated edition)
by Tod Davies
“Just my kind of book. . . . In addition to some great meals made to satisfy desires, needs, whims or simply to make use of what’s at hand, Jam Today is a complete pleasure to read.”—Deborah Madison, author of The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and In My Kitchen
“The spirit of M.F.K. Fisher surely hovers over this book, amused and beguiled by a cook whose prose has the same artful composure, and whose cooking possesses a similar innate sense of style.” —John Thorne, author of Serious Pig: An American Cook in Search of His Roots and Mouth Wide Open
Warm, conversational, and exquisitely practical, Tod Davies returns to the Jam Today series in an update of her original cult classic cookbook memoir. Featuring all new techniques and recipes—from how to brine just about everything to weird stuff, including Chinese Takeout Rice Pudding and Millennial Bowl cuisine—Jam Today continues to provide all the ingredients for daily feeding of mind, body, and soul.
