What People are Saying....
The Virtues of Cooking is part inspirational how-to, part culinary memoir, part cookbook. It's an unconventional recipe for a good life!
"THE JULIA CHILD OF CHAPPAQUA!"
—DANNY MEYER, Restaurateur & CEO, Union Square Hospitality Group
"I loved this book! I came to The Virtues of Cooking for the food but stayed for the stories. How Elinor, and her parents before her, used food as a family-connecting force is the real nourishment in this warm, wise and beautifully written book. I found myself wanting to be one of her siblings when she was growing up. I learned a lot about the parent I might have been. But, most of all, I now know there is still time to be a much better grandfather. I just have to go work on those pecan sticky buns for when the kids come this summer and by all means, practice patience!"
––THOMAS O. RYDER, amazon.com board and former Chairman & CEO Reader’s Digest
"EVERY BUSY MOM NEEDS THIS COOKBOOK IN HER KITCHEN!"
––VANESSA WILLIAMS, actress, singer and performer
