Cooking Alone

Cooking Alone

The Career Woman (who buys a chicken as a treat)
The Bedsitter (who experiments with newfangled gadgets)
The Old Lady (who feeds her menagerie of pets)
The Schoolboy Moocher (who makes toffee and wallows in grapes)
The Bachelor (who learns to stockpile food)

Meet the experts in cooking alone . . .

'Every servantless man and woman should read her.' Truth

Supper for one? Cooking Alone (1954) is a delicious miniature compendium of tales inspired by a cast of eccentric solitary characters. Brimming with entertaining anecdotes, recipes (rabbit with aubergine and prunes, anyone?) and top tips (ever wondered how to store ice cream in a bedsit?), Kathleen Le Riche is a witty, charming guide to the single life. Reissued with a new foreword by Bee Wilson, this vintage delight is a hymn to the pleasures of dining solo.

'A clever book, and amusing too. Somebody ought to bestow its author's name upon a sauce.' Belfast News Letter

'Delightful . . . Ingenious.' Home and Country

'Remarkable. Aside from its wit and period charm, this is one of the very few cookbooks to recognise that the most important ingredient in the kitchen is the human ... Nearly seventy years on, this still feels like a radical message.' Bee Wilson

'Richly imagined ... There is great tenderness and defiance in Le Riche's attention to the pleasures of the solitary cook.' Rebecca May Johnson
