Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.
What does a recipe have to teach us? From hospitality, friendship, community, family and ethnic heritage, tradition, nutrition, precision and order, invention and improvisation, feasting and famine, survival and seduction and love, Lynn Z. Bloom reveals the surprising lessons we can learn, in addition to the obvious instructions on how to prepare a dish or perform a process.
Not just a list of ingredients, a recipe is a signature, as individual as the cook's fingerprint; a passport to travel the world without leaving the kitchen; a lifeline for people in hunger and in want; and always a means to expand one's worldview, if not waistline.
