Product description


"Singer's memoir, Always Home: A Daughter's Recipes & Stories, is a tender portrait of the woman better known to the world as the mother of the farm-to-table movement." --Chloe Malle, Vogue, "The 5 Best Books of 2020 (So Far)"

"You will probably pick up this book because you're curious about how it feels to grow up with Alice Waters as your mother. But you will inevitably be captivated by Fanny Singer's sensuous voice and sensible soul. The writing's lovely, but more than that, Fanny has struck a kind of brutal honesty that is extremely rare and completely beautiful. Her writing makes you want to taste every flavor she describes, and soon you'll be dashing into the kitchen to make watercress soup, wild fennel cakes, and breakfast pudding. But the really important thing is that I'm pretty sure everyone who reads it will come away with the same feeling that I have: Why don't I live my life like this? How can I do better? I love this book." --RUTH REICHL, author of Save Me the Plums

"A charming and unique almost-love story, almost-memoir, with predictably fabulous recipes." --MARK BITTMAN, author of How to Cook Everything

"To read Fanny Singer's intimate and honest memoir is like having a mouthful of jewels. After fourteen years of cooking with her and her mother, Alice Waters, I got to know her even better through her perfect book. Singer's writing reminds me about everything important to me in life, the four f 's: friends, food, family, and fun."--CLAIRE PTAK, owner of Violet Bakery in London and author of The Violet Bakery Cookbook

"Fanny Singer's joyful, witty, and loving encounter with American genius inside the home and in the world heralds the arrival of a new voice, one that understands the pleasure to be found in discovery, and the ever evolving mystery embedded in the known. A book like no other, an instant classic." --HILTON ALS, staff writer, The New Yorker

"In this wondrous memoir-cookbook hybrid . . . Singer's language is read-out-loud luscious, and her culinary coming-of-age story savory and sweet." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"This heartwarming, feel-good, highly recommended memoir will appeal to fans of cooking, culinary travels, and family ties." --Library Journal

"Singer's charming narrative, interwoven with Lacombe's painterly black-and-white photographs, bursts with sensuous descriptions of tastes, fragrances, and textures as she recounts her "very rich and full and just a little bit unconventional" young life . . . . An intimate homage to an iconic restaurateur." --Kirkus Reviews

"Singer tells her own tale and that of her influential mother, tying the two together with their love of food and knack for powerful storytelling." --Town & Country ("6 Best Books to Read This March") --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Publisher

Fanny is the only person able to document the personal, unique and affectionate relationship she has with her mother. She has worked in countless restaurants, including her mother's, from an early age and can include recipes both influenced by her mother and brought up-to-date for a contemporary audience. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
