There isn't a book by Art Smith (Back to the Table, Back to the Family, Kitchen Life) I don't own and love and urge you to cook from, but I am particularly excited about this, his new one, not least because I have been urging him to write it for ages. You know I am not exactly in the market for what's often known as 'healthy eating' but that's really because so often it is espoused by those who don't actually love food. Art does and this book is replete with drool-making recipes, that earn their place for their deliciousness not merely because they make people feel virtuous — this gorgeous Brussels sprout salad being a case in point. But please: there is so much more here than simply salads. If it converts even me, you know it's a book to live for, not simply diet for.
From Art Smith's Healthy Comfort by Art Smith.
