Alana Chernila has been piecing together a philosophy about food at least as early as becoming a mom. Her first contacts with preparing meals, often with vegetables she helped raise, goes back to her own childhood. Through writing about her journey in the culinary realm, Alana has crystallized her experiences interacting with ingredients into some common sense grains of kitchen wisdom. With “The Homemade Kitchen: Recipes for Cooking with Pleasure,” (Clarkson Potter, 2015) these precepts are offered to help the entire process of food preparation and enjoying simpler and, well, more pleasurable.

Alana’s description of “The Homemade Kitchen” —

The Homemade Kitchen: Recipes for Cooking with Pleasure is a book about why I cook. It’s about how every time we cook and eat, we have a choice about how to shape our lives and relate to the work of our days. But maybe most of all, it’s about how to let go of the guilt and stress that can make it’s way to the kitchen and the dinner table. It’s a book about throwing out rules and judgement and whatever else might be weighing you down in the kitchen. It’s a book about joy and food, and how it’s time to reconnect the bond between the two.
