I just harvested this cabbage
sliced it into wedges, placed it in a cast iron pot with salt, olive oil and a red wine vinegar. I put the cover on it and roasted it for 30 minutes until golden brown without and tender within. Just like Tamar Adler told me to.
It was delicious.
Read An Everlasting Meal. Trust me. It is important. I almost didn’t want to publicly announce it for the secrets and the advice in this -more than a cookbook/novel, but a way of eating and enjoying life- are so great that I wanted to keep them all for myself. But that is silly and selfish and well, I know that this book has brought me so much happiness, and it would be wrong to do anything but pass that on to you. Each night when reading it, I would be left salivating, inspired and downright hungry by the time my eyelids got heavy. Each chapter is centered around a specific grouping of food. She talks about an egg or a roast or a legume with such passion and poetry you suddenly remember how beautiful a thing it is to be able to prepare a simple meal. And how enjoyable such a simple meal can be. There are rarely fancy expensive ingredients mentioned, she focuses more on local seasonal affordable eating. She is realistic and relatable, and she has a way of making you yearn for sardines in a way you will never believe. So purchase it, savor it, place it among your cookbooks and refer back to it often.
