Laurie Colwin is a gem of writer who died way, way too young. Beside her novels she was a regular contributor to Gourmet Magazine.

Many of her charming essays on food and her life around food have been gathered into two books, "Home Cooking" and "More Home Cooking", collections of simple recipes and reflections that are literary comfort food.
