As one of the world’s foremost proponents of minimalism, British architect John Pawson has spent his life trying to distill the world into its essentials. In his first cookbook, Pawson brings this philosophy of simplicity to the kitchen. In Living & Eating, using methods similar to those he brings to structural design, John Pawson creates simple menus that underscore the unique character of each ingredient. Beginning with a sound foundation, Pawson advises us on the cornerstones of quality in food.

Living and Eating is above all a cookery book, packed with 'luscious recipes' (Marie Claire), with food that has been selected to be simple and delicious. The intention is to narrow the gap between how we eat on a daily basis and how we entertain, recognizing that the most relaxed form of entertaining is simply about inviting people to join you at your table. The collection of recipes is designed to cater for all seasons and occasions, and gives attention to making the best ever version of everyone's favourites: there are recipes for roast chicken, the definitive tomato salad, tagliatelle a la carbonara, apple tart and summer pudding. The book goes beyond the food itself to look at the whole context in which we enjoy it - the plates and glasses we eat and drink from, the equipment we use to prepare the food and the kitchen in which we cook. Exquisitely designed and produced, and illustrated with stunning food photography and photographs of John Pawson's London house, Living and Eating is an unparalleled, much praised guide to a simple yet utterly seductive way of cooking, eating and living.

Being an amateur cook is not always easy. But this book starts out setting the stage with cookware etc. It then explains in an effortless way how to cook some of the best dishes I have ever prepared. The stuff works every time and it always looks good. Currently this is my one stop book for all my dinner parties, and I have a large collection of cookbooks! Well worth the money and a beautiful book to read as well.

I found my copy of this book used at a library book sale a couple years ago. So, why write a review of it on Amazon, especially now? I just moved abroad and my copy of this book is among those that didn't find their way into my suitcase. I miss it already.

I must admit that the first time I looked through it, I found it pretentious and unrealistic. The recipes, the recommendations, etc. All of it seemed a bit contrived.

However, I got to know it. I misinterpreted it at first. What I though was pretentious or whatever was more along the lines of an exploration of food in line with a particular philosophy. It's a balance of food, philosophy, and solid ideas that I haven't managed to find anywhere else. Once I sat down and understood it for the statement that it is, it became incredibly valuable to me.

I started cooking as a line cook at a big chain seafood restaurant. Not inspiring, but it got me comfortable with cooking, with working with a variety of ingredients in a way I was unable to before. After I left, I started cooking for myself, and eventually this book was one of the things that really helped me find joy and ultimately a very enriching experience in cooking. It was a great presence for me.

This is the sort of book that won't be to the taste of a lot of potential buyers. It has an agenda and makes no apologies. However, if you can see the beauty in the philosophy that underlies the book as a whole and explore it for yourself, it's wonderful. Not for everyone, but all the same I recommend it.

I've got hundreds of cookery books. This is my favourite cookery book for several reasons. The recipes are fail-proof and the results are restaurant quality every time. The recipes appeal to me and make me want to try them (there are only a handful of things remaining that I've not tried to make yet). The book is as much about lifestyle and style as much as cookery - its refreshing to look at and inspiring to read. My favourite recipes from the book are often the most simple and frequently cook them - midnight spaghetti, vichyssoise & salmon, venetian peas & rice, tomato & basil lasagne, the best shepherds pie you could ever make and a nifty way to cook perfect, tender steaks.

The premise of not being in the kitchen attending to dinner while your guests amuse themselves was the most welcome news I had come across in a cookbook. I love folks milling around the stove but only if I can still concentrate on what needs to be done. This cookbook has great recipes, mostly simple, and everyone a winner. Our Food Group (8 people) have used this book more than once for menus and I love to point out that it hails from England! I want a sequel with more finger-food for those balmy California evenings outdoors. Please.

Every single recipe I've made from this book has been awesome! Definitely reccomended! Especially the Potato Leek Soup and Tabbouleh!

The writers did themselves a disservice when they started out the book with a load of pretentious gibberish. A garbage disposal has "an extraordinary lack of grace". Of course. "A conscientious country dweller would simply trail out to the compost heap". Oh. Certainly. The dialogue in this book is absurd - so absurd I couldn't even get past it to the recipes. I understand the authors are attempting to embrace simplicity, but they come across as snobbish and pretentious. Some of their suggestions are outright ridiculous. I felt like I was being lectured by some pedantic drone on the absolute correct way to scramble my eggs or serve my food on warmed plates (because everyone has a plate warmer in their kitchen).

As far as the recipes, I couldn't even make it that far. Most are very simplistic, which I appreciate, and the authors have a mentality that you should make something frequently until you can make it to perfection, which again, I can appreciate. There were definitely a few that caught my eye, but on the whole, you can find these recipes in many other (less pretentious) cookbooks.

If you can see past the pretentious dialogue and get into trying the recipes, then you may enjoy this book. I just couldn't make it that far.
Pawson demonstrates less is more as visual certainty. Annie Bell is a bit more traditional but a thoughtful cook who gets to the essence of things. She is the best on cooking equipment that you will find anywhere. Minimalist but no compromises on quality.
