What We Eat When We Eat Alone: Stories and 100 Recipes by Debra Madison and Patrick McFarlin is an interesting look at how we eat when we are alone. I am finding myself surprised at some of the differences between the way men and women approach this. Sometimes I eat like a man and sometimes like a woman….
The book is as much a narrative as it is a cookbook, and there are only about 100 recipes in the book. Many of them are Southwestern. I’ve already found a few new polenta recipes to try.
This book is available in a Kindle Edition.
Update: This was a enjoyable and very personable book to read. The drawings in this book are absolutely delightful and add so much to the reading experience. The chapter on seduction meals is quite humorous and a must read.
The book had some interesting recipes that I plan to try. I would have preferred less Southwestern recipes; I think the book had too many.
