Top ten lost women's classics

Caroline O'Donoghue's debut novel is Promising Young Women. One of her top ten lost women's classics, as shared at the Guardian:
Home Cooking by Laurie Colwin

I have limited interest in adjectives, and food writing is full of them. Even good food writing I find hard going. Or at least, I did, until someone gifted me this slim little paperback. It’s full of gross references to 80s food, such as creamed spinach. Regardless, it’s a tragicomic exploration of life and friendship through food, something every food writer wants to achieve, but Colwin truly pulled out of the bag.
