Cooking for Optimists is the result of a decade of thinking, writing and cooking from author Nicole Stock. The book celebrates cooking - all of its meditative, frustrating, rewarding, soul-destroying complexities. There isn't any hyperactive fist pumping about the magic of some s...lightly tweaked pasta recipe, but there is genuine, inspiring enthusiasm for the perfection of the crunch of pastry, or the wobble of a just-set ganache tart. If there was a theme to this book, "unpretentiousness deliciousness" would be it. Recipes have been compiled not by trend, nor by how they might photograph, but by taste. As a passionate home cook, she is considerate of oven space and timing, realistic with the pressures of jobs and kids and general busyness, but also instils a sense of wonder and giddy gluttony that sweeps you along and makes you, too, eager to cook.
