The one thing that I have learned through my travels, both personal and those experienced vicariously through friends and family, is that eating an extraordinary meal can transport you to a different place and even a different time.
The stories of Safe as Houses are magical and original and help answer such universal and existential questions as: How far will we go to stay loyal to our friends? Can we love a man even though he is shorter than our ideal? A wonderful collection!
It's so great to see a cookbook with a simple approach. Hope has parlayed her love of food and travel into a memoir of delicious recipes that are perfectly balanced, thoughtful and just plain taste great. "I can't wait to try them all!"— Marc Vetri
