A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR 2022

Take your morning coffee with cinnamon crumble cake and your evening wine with mushroom pate, via a riot of salsas, crispy bits, banana splits, cheeseballs and frozen pina coladas. Whether you’re home alone or ready to party, The Joy of Snacks will lift your spirits while satisfying your deepest snacking desires.

‘People think it’s easy to write well about food. It isn’t. Goodman does it brilliantly, with brio and wit as well as cleverness. This is a collection of essays, recipes and meditations about snacks and it is both joyous and useful.’
India Knight, The Times

‘Deft storytelling, deep research and real wisdom about how we actually eat’
Rachel Roddy, Guardian Books of the Year 2022

‘As moreish as the snacks it celebrates, The Joy of Snacks is a smart, funny and moving meditation on the little things that make life great. I loved it.’
Ruby Tandoh

‘Naked, unashamed and witty, Laura Goodman delights, tempts and insults our intestines with raucous, dangerous and surprising suggestions.’

Reviews

Laura Goodman is a simply perfect food writer and everything she does is a dream
Ella Risbridger
It's so refreshing to read a cookbook that makes me laugh! Laura does the near impossible; her food and her good humour are as delicious in real life as on the page

An utterly joyful read. I cannot think of a nicer afternoon than to settle down with this book and a variety of snacks alongside.

Miriam Margolyes
There are few food writers as witty and informed as Laura, and I (unsurprisingly to me) devoured this book. She also happens to have great taste, so I will be making most of these dips immediately.
