How to Stride Ahead - Part One is the first installment of a video series that correspond to chapters in Tamar Adler's wonderful An Everlasting Meal. Instead of the standard instructional video, Tamar wanted something that illustrated the essence of cooking, something that got people excited to both read An Everlasting Meal and to get in the kitchen themselves.
“An Everlasting Meal is beautifully intimate, approaching cooking as a narrative that begins not with a list of ingredients or a tutorial on cutting an onion, but with a way of thinking…. Tamar is one of the great writers I know—her prose is exquisitely crafted, beautiful and clear-eyed and open, in the thoughtful spirit of M.F.K. Fisher. This is a book to sink into and read deeply.” — Alice Waters, from the Foreword
