Her hands lay inert and upturned on her lap – probably stunned, she thinks, by the hideousness of the skirt underneath them. Centre seam puckered, zipper mangled, it's handmade in a way that makes people say, 'Did you sew that yourself?' when they mean, 'How can you wear that thing?' But she made it the day after he died, and she talked to him in her head the whole time. Which is why it looks like hell and why she had to wear it anyway.

Excerpt

Beans. We know them well, but as familiar as they are, a huge number of us don't have a clue what to do with them once we get them home to our kitchens. It's amazing that legumes, which have been around for centuries and are present in nearly every cuisine around the world, are still such a mystery even to skilled cooks. The process of soaking and simmering seems daunting, even though it requires even less culinary skill than cooking rice or pasta. All legumes-beans, chickpeas, peas, and lentils-are high in fibre, protein, and other essential nutrients. They're low in fat, cholesterol-free, versatile, environmentally friendly, and cheap. They could very well be the world's most perfect food.
