CANAL HOUSE COOKING, VOLUME N° 2, FALL & HOLIDAY is filled with recipes that will make you want to run into the kitchen and start cooking. It is a collection of our favorite fall and holiday recipes. We are home cooks writing about home cooking for other home cooks. Our recipes are easy to prepare, and completely doable for the novice and experienced cook alike. Foods of the holidays are classics, tied to tradition and memory. We cook our grandmothers’, aunts’, and mothers’ recipes to bring them to life and invite the people we miss to the table again. For us, it wouldn’t be a holiday without Neenie’s Sourdough-Sage Stuffing, or Jim’s Roast Capon, or Peggy’s Grand Marnier Soufflé. But no matter what your menu, the most important thing is to join together for a meal and share the intimacy of the table.

Canal House Cooking, now in its second of three issues per year, is a serialized cookbook, one that comprises unpretentious but inspiring recipes, photographs, stories, and quotations that are well
suited to the home cook who revels in the simple pleasures of the table, not to mention a good read by the fire.” — The Editors, Saveur

“Usually when I see “charming” and “self-published” in the same sentence, I run quickly in the opposite direction. But Canal House Cooking, a charming new self-published cookbook by Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton, has me running to the kitchen instead.” —John Willoughby, Gourmet

“Full of practical advice and handsome photography, this is just the kind of well-designed serial cookbook that an enthusiastic cook—seasoned or new—will treasure.”—Ed Behr, The Art of Eating

    The recipes in this book sound amazing! I love the article "Getting Drunk" by Colman Andrews. It's brilliant! The email from one author to the other was pretty great too! Even though most of these recipes are not what I would consider "every day" food, they still look and sound delicious! Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
