Editorial Reviews

Praise for Deb Perelman and SmittenKitchen.com “A blog with a wonderfully homey feel . . . [Pereleman’s] creations are . . . mouthwatering.”—Time, a Best Blog of 2011 “For four years, Deb Perelman has been blogging her cooking pursuits from her tiny New York City kitchen as a newlywed and then as a new mother. This is the result of hours spent perfecting her own recipes and interpreting those of the best food publications out there. Some of the recipes featured can be complicated, but you have Deb’s warm chatter, funny anecdotes, encyclopedic knowledge of food and cookbooks, cooking, and gorgeous photography getting you through it. She’s a farmers’ market shopper and hence her blog is completely seasonal, and archived that way as well. You'll see her tackle the impossible—a wedding cake—and the very simple, ‘How to Turn a Bucket of Cheap Tomatoes into a Perfect Pot of Sauce.’ Do we really have to wait until 2012 for the Smitten Kitchen cookbook?”—Gwyneth Paltrow, on her blog GOOP “Smitten Kitchen reads like a conversation with a witty friend who can recommend the perfect nosh for any occasion.”—O, The Oprah Magazine “Warm and encouraging, the photos are pure food porn, and the something-for-everyone recipes sound sublime.”—Entertainment Weekly“Perelman’s thoughtful prose and sometimes humorous posts read like an e-mail from your best friend—only with better photos.”—Better Homes and Gardens “An enthusiastic kitchen amateur chronicles her adventures, offering a mix of easy recipes, smart and witty commentary, and beautiful photos.”—Real Simple “One of our favorite cooking blogs . . . We are big fans of Deb Perelman—the founder, cook, writer, and photographer behind the whole operation—and her gorgeous food photos, simple recipes, and charming voice.”—Everyday Food
