In The Consolation of Food Valentine Warner presents a collection of stories with recipes to read and make in troubled times. A book of 'comfort' food in the truest sense of the word, this book is unlike any other food memoir.

Following a personal tragedy, Val began to take note of his grief in culinary form, documenting meals that made him feel good. From the aching simplicity of toast with butter to the isolation of cooking for one and the pleasure of returning to heart-warming wholesome slow-roasts, one-pot suppers and more.

This is a cookbook for the modern world that recognises the affirmative powers of cooking; to hearten us in times of need and to cheer us in days of uncertainty or sadness, to soothe the soul, to lift our spirits and to celebrate the pure life-changing and life-affirming joy of good food.

Organised chronologically and featuring 75 recipes including illustrations and photography alongside personal stories, this is an incredibly insightful book, wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully written. It is a uniquely modern classic.
