Kitchen Things (Skyhorse Publishing, 2013), by master photographer and respected novelist Richard Snodgrass, celebrates well-loved objects and recipes and showcases them in an unexpected way — a way that touches upon the science of food, the physics of cooking, the sensory pleasures of eating, and indeed the very nature of life itself. The following Porcupines Meatballs Recipe is from page 70.

You can purchase this book from the GRIT store: Kitchen Things.

“These are fun,” Chub says. “It’s your ground beef and you mix it up with all the other ingredients, and you include some uncooked rice in there. Then you shape the mixture into balls, and when you cook them the rice sticks out like quills. They’re great for kids. You’d probably like them too.”
