Everybody talks about eating seasonally. But that’s easier to accomplish in summer, when sampling nature’s bounty is as simple as a trip to the local greenmarket. Being a consummate (and truly seasonal) cold-weather cook takes real creativity—and a deep enthusiasm for the fortifying pleasures of the autumn and wintertime table.


Anne Bramley has both. The host of the hit podcast Eat Feed heads straight to the kitchen when temperatures plunge—eager to share her passion for food that will stoke your fire through all the months when the body craves warmth and the soul hungers for conviviality.


Going well beyond cookbooks that focus solely on the holidays, Eat Feed Autumn Winter finds reason to celebrate throughout the year’s twilit time. After helping you stock your pantry, Bramley presents meals to sustain you from the first chilly evenings of fall through the lengthening days that herald spring. With menus for enjoying the autumn harvest (Wheat Berry and Fig Salad, Feta-Olive Phyllo Cigars), celebrating the winter solstice (Lambswool Punch, Yule Log Cake), and warming up après ski (Onion Rösti, Cheese Fondue), the book is a cornucopia—not just of delectable recipes but also of imaginative ideas for cold-weather entertaining.

Despite not being a whiz in the kitchen, I do like to cook and Eat Feed Autumn Winter is hands-down my favorite cookbook because the recipes in this book do not require expertise yet yield results that would belie that fact. Some of the recipes, the Whitefish Chowder in particular, are go-to standards; others, such as the Pork Chops (I can't remember the whole title right now and am having a glass of wine) are more for when my (vegetarian) boyfriend and I are entertaining. The division of recipes into thematic menus is brilliant, if only because it makes it easier to find what one is looking for. However, the absolute delight of simply perusing this book as if it were a coffee table book on eating in the winter through time and countries is inestimable. Despite having owned it for four years now, I still like to sit with a cup of coffee and just leaf through the pages, fantasizing about which of the few recipes I haven't made will be next to try, and which favorites I will be making again soon.
Very nice book. Have a great butternut squash soup that I love.
I love Mercedes
I started borrowing it from the library, and was probably two months late returning it, it was so hard to part with. Then I had the brilliant idea to look on Amazon... Amazing, unusual and fun recipes for winter cooking. Fun information. Lovely photos. So happy to own it.
this is a super cool cookbook.

i am not a master chef by any means, and yet i desire to cook healthfully and seasonally, and make food that is inspiring without being so difficult. well, this book is it!!

first off, it is a joy to read: there is both humor throughout the book and great factual info on veggies, meats, other ingredients, and seasonality; it's also great to look at: the photos are great! the larger size format of the book is comfortable and well designed, and thus pleasurable to read.

the content is inspired: chef Anne Bramley (of the EatFeed Podcast) provides meals, not just individual dishes, and as a plus there are great little accompaniments such as unusual and sometimes funny drink recipes and desserts that truly go well with the meal: ex-lambswool punch!, easy home-made ice creams...

the recipes seem mostly UK-based and ''comforting''(it IS a fall/winter book afterall)--but before you think heavy and starchy--NOT!
Ms Bramley manages to make scottish and english dishes hearty and healthy yet still light--i think it's the great ingredients and unusual english spicing/herbing instead of the over-emphasis on potatos, starch, corn starch, and breads that so often seem a big part of UK cooking. i find that the fats used are combined well with vegetables and other ingredients and they add to, rather than taking over the meal.
there are great versions of savory pies, pasty(!) and souffles and savory meat dishes; yet the vegetables and fruits in general shine in this book. to me it seems that this would be the original cooking of old in the UK, where more greens, veggies, and slow cooking as well as fresh, original ingredients were used. chef Bramley adds her own in the superb combinations of meats, veggies, spices and herbs. the menus are both the simple and unusual, yet healthy; there are complex ones as well--but i never get the feeling i can't handle making the recipe without success. that is a really nice aspect of this book.

in short, with very little skill, and some great ingredients, i can make a wonderful, inspired meal. Currently I'm loving the parsnip souffle and the winter greens tart! can't wait to try the Welsh Rarebit too! i have found this is just a really great book for a fun and tasty fall/winter season, but also for sunday summer suppers and brunches! i find i can't wait to try the next menu..
This book, quite simply, is a jewel and a treasure. I came upon it unexpectedly a couple of summers ago and refused to open it until the first perfect fall evening. It has now become an annual tradition, curling up in a cozy chair with a cup of hot cocoa or tea and just perusing the pages, leisurely re-reading it as though it were the very first time. It has become my favorite hostess gift - autumn, winter, spring, or summer. I keep hoping there will be a follow-up, 'Eat Feed Spring Summer'. Please? 'Pretty' please?
I can't say enough good things about this cookbook. It's beautifully designed, the photography is outstanding, the writing witty and informative. And yet it remains a very approachable book, and the recipes that I've tried are all outstanding. I've written a longer review and included several recipes from the book at: [...]
Anne Bramley's book is beautiful. The photographs are stunning and the recipes are easy to read and follow. I loved the stories and history that came along with the recipes. I would highly recommend this to any cook book lover.
This is a great cookbook full of simple, elegant and unusual recipes - the dishes in it are truly festive. Best of all, however, it is simple to follow and the recipes do not take terribly long to make. If you are a cook with only a moderate skill level (like me), this book will not bog you down.
