HOME COOKING A Writer in the Kitchen

by | Read by Rebecca Lowman

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

With a musing and often amused-sounding tone, Rebecca Lowman transports listeners to the kitchens of the late novelist and food writer Laurie Colwin. As Lowman narrates these essays, first published in 1988, she inhabits Colwin's playfully opinionated thoughts, which range from feeding picky eaters to feeding crowds, from finding joy in comfort food to finding joy in cooking just for herself in a tiny New York apartment. Lowman draws on even pacing and clear enunciation, inviting listeners to imagine with all their senses a variety of meals, menus, and recipes. Even those recipes are genuinely fun to listen to as Lowman captures Colwin's instructor-at-your-elbow style of delivering the ingredients in her dishes, along with notes on how and why to put them together just as she instructs.
