RECIPES UNDER CONFINEMENT, 2021 Edited by Sharon Kivland

RECIPES UNDER CONFINEMENT is a cookbook that follows a call on Facebook by the Editor to friends and acquaintances in 2020, a few months into confinement, asking for their recipes under confinement (at the same time as a friend called for dreams). Many people were showing or recounting what they were preparing, with pride in their resourcefulness, their invention, their modest ambition. She mentioned Alice B. Toklas’s cook book as an example, which is a mingling of recipe and reminiscence. Herein are recipes sent by hundred and fifteen cooks, who are also writers, poets, artists, art historians, editors, philologists, lovers, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters (and of course, children and grandmothers and other kin. There are also several cats who did not provide recipes but interfered).
The recipes range from soup to nuts: from artichokes (planting of) to tea (brewing of), from smoking (fish, that is) to nettle soups (foraged); from pickles (various) to fermenting (tips and a kind offer). There are breads, cakes, muffins, scones, and puddings. Fridges are emptied, store cupboards exploited, and all are resourceful when resources are limited. And wonderfully, there is homebrewing, wine, and cocktails.

N.B.: There are some small errata in the first printing, due to a misunderstanding over print files (an idiot of an Editor), but nothing terrible, and all will be corrected in the second printing, which hopefully will come about due to sales.
