Inside Plum Gorgeous, Romney "Nani" Steele follows her successful cookbook/memoir My Nepenthe with 60 seasonally inspired recipes that celebrate the "romance of fruit". Capturing the essence, beauty, and deliciousness of cooking with seasonal fruits, Steele offers simple and seductive recipes that intertwine with the seasons in which each fruit is harvested. Interspersed throughout Plum Gorgeous are beautiful, full-color photographs by Sara Remington and reminiscences from the year that Steele spent living in an orchard in Big Sur, along with fruit lore and select notes on handling and preserving fruit. Hardcover, 192 pages, published in 2011. Romney Steele is not only a writer, cook and food stylist, but is also the granddaughter of Bill and Lolly Fassett, the creators of Nepenthe Restaurant. Nani, as she is known to family and friends, grew up at the restaurant and opened Cafe Kevah, an outdoor cafe on the Nepenthe grounds, when she was twenty-six years old. She later served as a pastry chef at Sierra Mar Restaurant at nearby Post Ranch Inn. Her writing has appeared in various print magazines, including Gourmet, and online at MSNBC. She currently lives in Oakland, California with her two children, and runs the restaurant, The Cook and Her Farmer.
