Nature isn’t persistently bright; it wears and ages.
~ Tamar Adler, An Everlasting Meal
A few months ago, a friend sent me the book An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace. It’s been sitting on the to-be-read shelf, and I’ve looked at it occasionally, thinking that I shouldn’t be neglecting it as I have been. It is, after all, a gift, one I should explore and appreciate. But I’ve learned that some gifts need to be approached at just the right time, and this book is one of them.
