Staff Reviews

Home Made Winter is the perfect cook book to turn those long cold nights
into bountiful culinary experiences.  Learn  how to make apple cider
(it takes a food processor and strong arms!) and fresh cheese!  I have
found this indispensable in my winter kitchen so far and can't wait to
see what the rest of the season brings.  There are also sections that
showcase family favorite recipes for various winter holidays from the
Feast of St. Nicholas to the celebration of the New Year.  I recommend
sitting under a blanket with a warm mug of tea while browsing the pages
for the first time, you will not be disappointed.

"Because I'm often headstrong, I've sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you won't mind. Because I'm often impatient, I've sometimes drawn the recipes because it's faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you don't think in the same realm as I do, I've also added memories and photos so you get a sense of what I mean. Just like a formally decorated table, or a beautifully arranged plate, I believe that a cookbook should exude a certain spirit that I think you should be in when you get in the mood to get going in the kitchen."
--from the Introduction
