Food is life, and Laurie Colwin served hers up with jokes and trivia, delightful diversions and strange segues . . .
Greetings from Hoxton Square, where we’re busy preparing a feast of good reading for the summer quarter: the new issue of Slightly Foxed magazine will be rolling off the presses next week, as well as the latest limited-edition memoir, Over to Candleford & Candleford Green by Flora Thompson.
To fortify readers meantime, we have selected a delicious morsel from the archives to share with you this weekend. We were delighted to learn that Olivia Potts was shortlisted for the Fortum & Mason Food and Drink Awards 2022 for her food writing in Slightly Foxed, so we’re serving up her piece on Laurie Colwin, the original ‘writer in the kitchen’. Click here to read the full article – we do hope you’ll enjoy it.
And please see below for a selection of highlights from our online kitchen library of food and drink titles. Bon appétit!
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
