'A book to be savored.' -DEBORAH MADISON, author ofThe New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone'Laughing with Tod at her loves and disasters will make you laugh at your own, and keep cooking.' -ANNA THOMAS, author ofLove Soup andThe New Vegetarian Epicure'Chatty, wise, and terrifically useful, Tod Davies' second serving ofJam makes disaster delicious and success the stuff of everyday life. What a treat to read and eat.' -KATE LEBO, author ofA Commonplace Book of PieWarm, conversational, and exquisitely practical, Davies returns to the Jam Today series to share new recipes from her home kitchen-and stories about her experiences cooking for herself and her friends, family, and pets-during the best and worst of times. Whether she's describing how she set up her kitchen in an RV after a flood, encouraging young feminists to try cooking a baked potato, adapting an M.F.K. Fisher recipe to create 'the world's simplest hollandaise sauce,' or singing the praises of her favorite local food purveyors, her infectious enthusiasm provides inspiration for everyone from trained chefs to those barely able to scramble an egg.Featuring advice for omnivores and vegetarians alike about how to eat (and what to prepare) to survive natural disasters, cross-country moves, bereavement, holidays-gone-wrong, and even a spontaneous picnic,Jam Today Too provides all the ingredients for daily feeding of mind, body, and soul.Tod Davies is the author ofSnotty Saves the Day andLily the Silent, both from The History of Arcadia series, and the cooking memoirsJam Today: A Diary of Cooking With What You've Got andJam Today Too: The Revolution Will Not Be Catered. Unsurprisingly, her attitude toward literature is the same as her attitude toward cooking-it's all about working with what you have to find new ways of looking and new ways of being, and in doing so, to rediscover the best of our humanity. Davies lives with her husband and their two dogs, in the alpine valley of Colestin, Oregon, and at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, in Boulder, Colorado.

Editorial Reviews

Praise forJam Today Too'Original and lyrical . . . Davies' relaxed and personable voice is as comforting sounding as the Tuscan Potato Soup or Cassoulet recipes she includes. . . . By sharing the specific and intimate portraits and interpretations of her daily meals, their preparation, and the people and life circumstances surrounding them, Davies allows the juxtapositions to themselves reveal some of the bigger messages of a life well-lived and shared.' -Oregonian'Davies entwines food and cooking with love and life. This engaging memoir will inspire you to find your inner Julia Child.' -Shelf Unbound'[Davies] infectious enthusiasm and cheerleading make even the most difficult New American recipes accessible to the average cook. . . . Jam Today Too, a delicious bite to be savored over and over again, teaches us how to live and enjoy life one day at a time.' -Shelf Awareness for Readers (starred review)'Shift-causing in its practicality. . . . What an original voice Davies is. She's all attitude.Jam Today Too is a treatise on how to develop a sane, honest, joyful relationship with food and cooking (and good red wine).' -ForeWord Reviews'A love of food emanates from every page. . . . [Davies] is a roll-your-sleeves-up foodie of the highest order.' -Washington Independent Review of Books'An amalgam of life and cooking. . . . Davies gives us readers not only good cooking ideas and instructions, but also the joys and sorrows and triumphs and mistakes that go along with them . . . serv[ing] up, in diction that reveals her genuine passion, a delicious second course of her Jam Today series.' -Friends of Atticus'A brilliant follow up to what's become one of my very favorite books about food, ever.' -Nourish Me'Absolutely wonderful . . . I dare you to read this book and not be cheered immediately. . . . It's not a book that tells you what to do or how to eat, it's a book that celebrates the pleasure of eating well your way.' -Bookconscious'Reading [Jam Today Too] feels like sitting at the kitchen counter with a glass of wine, talking with your friend while she cooks dinner.' -Rose City Reader'Jam Today Too is about cooking in real life, including cooking around destructive floods (two of them), having friends drop by, working with what's there when you're miles from town or the weather turns on you, cooking for a person whose taste is quite different from your own, and all the other ins and outs of eating and cooking while living. It's a book to be savored, not read all at once, though you'll be sorely tempted.' -DEBORAH MADISON, author ofThe New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone'Waiter, there's philosophy in my soup! But Tod's ruminations on life, love, disaster, friendship, and home always find their way back to real, practical advice about how to cook with what you have, wherever your kitchen may be. Laughing with Tod at her loves and disasters will make you laugh at your own, and keep cooking.' -ANNA THOMAS, author ofLove Soup andThe New Vegetarian Epicure'Chatty, wise, and terrifically useful, Tod Davies' second serving of Jam makes disaster delicious and success the stuff of everyday life. What a treat to read and eat.' -KATE LEBO, author ofA Commonplace Book of Pie'I'd just like a refill, please. A second cool, tall glass ofJam.'-MAGGIE RUGGIERO, Food Editor/Stylist forGather Journal'How refreshing, a food memoir that's actually about food. No tattooed chefs. No Nordic kitchen rock stars. Just a woman facing her stove and finding out who she is through the food she cooks. ReadingJam Today Too, you just might find out who you are, too.' -TORI RITCHIE,Tuesday Recipe'These days we understand that exercise is its own reward. The effects of exercise make you want to exercise again. Cooking, when it's done regularly and so loses the 'performance' aspect, has the same kind of multiplier effect. It takes us to a place that's just being, just doing. Jam Today Too takes us to that place, between our so basic need for and love of food; and our need for and love of nourishing each other. Davies' daily inspirations about what to eat show us how home cooking becomes its own reward.' -CHARLENE ROLLINS, Chef/Owner of New Sammy's Cowboy Bistro and three-time James Beard Foundation Awards semifinalist for Best Northwest Regional Chef'Tod Davies, inJam Today Too, teaches us how to have fun with food without throwing it. But, if you must, please throw this good stuff at me.' -VERNON ROLLINS, Sommelier/Owner of New Sammy's Cowboy Bistro, one ofFood & Wine magazine's '50 Most Amazing Wine Experiences''Jam Today Too is an antidote to the industrial food lobby's portrayal of food as inconvenient, irrelevant, and even harmful. Davies' book reminds us that real food-the kind that nourishes both body and soul-is found in the simplest meals made with love.' -KAYANN SHORT, author ofA Bushel's Worth: An Ecobiography atPearlmoonplentyPraise for the Jam Today series'Delightful . . . written by a woman who values food, family and friends.' -Shelf Awareness'Jam Today, whose title is culled from a line in one of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books, isn't so much a cookbook as it is ruminations on food preparation and living right.' -Cascadia Weekly'Tod Davies takes a physicist's approach to social change . . . like the minds behind a particle accelerator, her primary goal is to cause collisions.' -Portland Mercury'Davies's creative joy in food and the world around her is infectious.' -Bookslut'The spirit of M.F.K. Fisher surely hovers over this book, amused and beguiled by a cook whose prose has the same artful composure, and whose cooking possesses a similar innate sense of style.' -JOHN THORNE, author ofSerious Pig: An American Cook in Search of His Roots andMouth Wide Open: A Cook and His Appetite Praise forJam Today TooOriginal and lyrical . . .
