The Food Almanac
By Miranda York
2020 • Pavilion Books
Presented as a seasonal food almanac—a month-by-month guide to inspire the reader throughout the year—each chapter begins with an introduction from the editor, followed by seasonal highlights for the cook’s larder, spotlights on ingredients, and passages on food history. A book to both read and cook from, each chapter ends with a menu by a different cook or chef, with recipes carefully chosen to show off the best of the season.
Contributors range from legendary food writers and lauded chefs such as Diana Henry, Fuchsia Dunlop, Yotam Ottolenghi, and Meera Sodha to poets and novelists including Kit de Waal, poet Livia Franchini, and playwright and novelist Deborah Levy; and each specially commissioned story looks at the gastronomic world through a cultural prism.
