9 Delicious Hostess Gifts
Ripe by Nigel Slater
You’ll love this cookbook devoted to the pleasures of fruit both for the endearing writing (plums are described as “jelly-fleshed
and incandescently ripe”) and the easy-to-follow recipes. If that doesn’t pull you into the kitchen, gorgeous photographs
of dishes like Baked Peaches With Maple Syrup and Rhubarb Cinnamon Polenta Cake will do the trick.
