Angelika  Overath  (Editor), Manfred  Koch  (Editor), Silvia  Overath  (Editor) - At Table


Between poppy-seed cake and nut schnapps – 33 writers cook for their friends

When, some time ago, writer Karl-Heinz Ott was invited round to dinner by Angelika Overath and her husband, Manfred Koch, he took with him as a present for his hosts a small hand-written booklet of some of his own recipes. The recipes were slightly out of the ordinary and easy to prepare. They also said a great deal about their author. That very same evening, Angelika Overath and Manfred Koch had the idea of asking other writers to jot down some of their favourite recipes, each one accompanied by a short story.

The result is a narrative cookbook with contributions from 33 writers, from Brigitte Kronauer to Olga Grjasnowa, from Hans Magnus Enzensberger to Terézia Mora. And it is a volume that shows that a great many writers are not only excellent story-tellers but often very special and exquisite chefs.

"At Table is an unusual and, in places, adventurous cookbook best read and enjoyed while experimenting with a group of friends."
