There’s a small club of books which, after I’ve read them, obliterate my need for any gift list the coming Christmas: I’ll simply buy the book by the case, and give it to everyone I care about. In this small club are First, Break All the Rules by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman, The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom, and Love is the Killer App by Tim Sanders. There are a few others, but those come to mind most immediately.
An Everlasting Meal is newest to the club and I don’t think I’ll wait for Christmas with a good nine and a half months’ of birthdays lined up before then. Tamar Adler didn’t just write a book; she gave us all a gift.
I believe that the best books will change your habits in some way, and this one certainly has changed mine. For most of my life I’ve said, “I don’t cook.” and now, I am. I’ve been cooking throughout my reading of An Everlasting Meal, and I’m quite sure I’ll continue to. I’ve already experimented with a few variations of her recipes, approaching them with no fear. Amazing if you know of my history in the kitchen, just amazing.
