Love and Hunger by Charlotte Wood

A grand vicarious romp through the life and musings of Charlotte Wood – with recipes! Part memoir, part cook book, part philosophical deliberation, it will appeal to anyone with an interest in any of these. Love and Hunger is a collection of 25 essays on the subject of ‘food’ and all its subtexts; exploring the ways in which we use food to love, to comfort and to share our lives with others. In the vein of Collette Rossant’s Apricots on the Nile, it is simply and lovingly written. Love and Hunger is destined to become both a kitchen staple and a bedside table companion.
