"A quietly brilliant ode to the myriad pleasures-both mundane and sublime-to be discovered in the daily ritual of cooking. Dana Velden's words read like a deliciously warm hug to cooks of all ilks; her charming stories, appealing recipes, meditative reflections, and honest encouragement will lure hesitant newbies to the stove and remind seasoned cooks why they fell in love with the kitchen in the first place." --Erin Scott, author of Yummy Supper
"The way Dana articulates what happens in the kitchen has helped me form my own deep-rooted philosophies about the cooking life. I turn to her when I cannot find the words to express how utterly healing and ultimately metaphorical it is to pick up a knife or stir a pot of soup. I am so grateful that she finally put what I am sure is just a fraction of her rich experience into a collection of chapters for us all to experience." --Sara Kate Gillingham, James Beard Award-winner, cookbook author, and co-founder of TheKitchn.com
"Finding Yourself In The Kitchen is a glorious meditation on the quiet magnificence of the mundane, and how kitchen tasks-everything from cooking to cleaning to placing a simple bowl of lemons on your kitchen table-can root and ground us in a noisy world that is distracting and nebulous. This is an instant classic, and a must-have addition to my kitchen bookshelf where I predict it will remain forever, dog-eared, stained, falling apart, and deeply loved." --Elissa Altman, author of Poor Man's Feast: A Love Story of Comfort, Desire, and the Art of Simple Cooking
