Weekend Reading: Digesting Recipes
Susannah Worth. Digesting Recipes: The Art of Culinary Notation. Zero Books, 2015.
I did a blurb for this unusual book:
Digesting Recipes takes an off-beat and highly refreshing post-modern look at cookbooks as markers of cultural identity. Recipes, it makes clear, are far more than cooking directions. After reading this, I have a whole new appreciation for what recipes can tell us about the deeper meanings of modern society.
