    One thought on “The Culinary Cyclist: A Cookbook and Companion for the Good Life”

    1. This book together with its charming illustrations were such a pleasure to read. It embodies a lifestyle I long to cultivate in my own life: running errands by bike, buying simple food, making nourishing meals and enjoying them with those I love. It's short enough to read over two or three breakfasts, and definitely a book I want to keep in my kitchen.

    2. I didn't know there was a category in the world for Culinary Cyclists (but of course there is; there's a category for everything) so this hits home nicely since I am a biker who loves to bake. Hmm: Baking Bicyclist? There's a category.The bike stuff I already knew but it's great information for someone just starting to bike around town or who's committed to commuting by bike.Anyway, with Johanna Kindvall's irresistible illustrations, this slim volume in a perfect olive-y green pleases me to no e [...]

    3. “A small garden, figs, a little cheese, and, along with this, three or four good friends—such was luxury to Epicurus.”

    4. Small quick read. Some nice recipes. Not functional in Alaska, or for really busy people. But nice to dream.

    5. I won this cookbook from First-Reads and I'm happy to have it in my kitchen. Anna Brones has written an excellent cookbook with very nice illustrations by Johanna Kindvall. Eating healthy and exercising is something that our family believes is important. Most of our family is Vegan/vegetarian with a couple of family members who eat meat. We all agree that everything we put in our body should be worthy to be eaten, so we don't eat processed or fast foods. This wonderful cookbook allows us to mak [...]

    6. I am not part of the target audience for this book - but that's OK, I guess. I picked this up on the new books shelf at the public library. (It amuses and sometimes puzzles me that Arlington County (VA) gets certain books.)I was not particularly interested in the recipes that are most of the contents, but read through much of the commentary about how cycling can or should fit into one's life. The author has strong opinions, but they are expressed relatively lightly, or anyway they come across wi [...]

    7. One of the most charming cookbooks ever! Charming in part because of size (small, slender, but also very rich)--partly because of delicate and whimsical illustrations--partly because of Anna Brones's clear delight in food and bicycling and general happy living. Also continues my obsession with Microcosm Publishing (though this book is actually from Elly Blue Publishing, Microcosm sells/distributes it). So inspired to make a bunch of gluten-free stuff from this book (since I am newly gluten-free [...]

    8. "Nietzsche said, "A small garden, figs, a little cheese, and, along with this, three or four good friends - such was luxury to Epicurus" (p.10)"Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as necessity. - Voltaire" (p.13)"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him the people who give you their food give you their heart - Cesar Chavez" (p.61)

    9. I read this in about an hour. It is a quick guide to two things that I love, biking and eating. There are recipes and tips on how to haul things around on your bike. Stuff I already knew, but never really thought about intentionally. It is a great guide for someone just starting to utilize their bike and kitchen in say a city. Knowing how to entertain, how to be entertained and how to haul things all by bike are great skills to have.

    10. Fun and whimsical. Interesting perspective from someone who is a cyclist and loves to cook too. Like me!!

    11. There are several cute recipes in here - the best is a cardamon cake that my husband loves!!! (paleo friendly)
