Bring the mysterious and magical world of Emily Dickinson into your home by making the comforting foods that Emily loved to cook.
Whether you are a fan of the hit television series Dickinson or have long been inspired by Emily Dickinson’s poems, this enchanting cookbook brings Emily to life as little else could. A distinguished food historian said this about Emily: “She was probably better known as a baker than a poet in her lifetime.” Remarkably, that is true! Emily wrote her poetry in the kitchen of her home in Massachusetts and was cooking up a storm much of the time. She wrote poems on the wrappers of packages of chocolate that she had ordered for baking; and she wrote recipes in her notebooks of poems. Food and cooking were central to Emily’s identity and were woven into her vocation of writing poetry.
This charming cookbook makes a perfect gift for the Emily fan in your life—or for yourself, if you happen to love Emily and the comforting foods of days gone by.
