Reviews

"Tamar Adler is a curious magpie, skillfully collecting culinary ephemera from across the ages and weaving them into an unimaginably beautiful nest. Step inside. You'll find yourself comforted and inspired by the writing and the food, both equally sensible and elegant."
--Samin Nosrat, author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat
"Tamar Adler is more than a wonderful food writer--she is a wonderful writer. She delves into these past and forgotten recipes with the spirit of an adventurer and a sleuth, and while writing about food, she is always secretly writing about something else--a love of life, eternal values, industry, thrift, friendship, the unknown. Her books--written with a charmingly loose confidence and care--feel timeless. Even those of us who never cook, or don't give meals much thought, will find enduring literary pleasure in Something Old, Something New."
--Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?
"Home cooks looking to adventure into the past will find much to enjoy with these refound recipes."
--Library Journal, (starred review)
"Adler is a peaceable cook, and a pragmatic one... Her economizing ethos shines in her new book."
--The Washington Post
"Adler has a curious intelligence and technical command to back up a thoughtful approach to classic French dishes, which reimagines what might be produced out of a home kitchen... Any cook looking to exercise and enhance creativity will find in Adler a worthy muse."
--Booklist
"What a delight this book is. It reminded me of half-forgotten treats and made me nostalgic for things I've never actually tasted. But most of all, I treasure Something Old, Something New for the writing, which is as suave and fun to read as M.F.K. Fisher. Adler is the best kind of kitchen companion, someone whose warm and witty voice I want to carry with me as I cook."
--Bee Wilson, author of Consider the Fork
"A lovely and literary cookbook... handsome and witty and personal, full of glimpses into Adler's life." --Vogue.com
"Revitalizes fusty classics and long-forgotten dishes, bringing them into this century with verve and ease... it's bookery meets cookery."
--Christine Muhlke, Bon Appetit
"A personal, nostalgic journey inspiring the rediscovery of classics... as much about the writing as it is about the cooking... lyrical."
--Jenny Rosenstrach, The New York Times Book Review
"Her writing is lyrical and lovely--and thorough and authoritative."
--Food 52
