“A beautiful expression of how Aran feeds her family and friends simple foods like buttermilk-brined chicken and roasted carrot and cashew soup. This is a book for all cooks.”—Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, founders of Food52
2020 James Beard Award Semifinalist/The New York Times Book Review Holiday Books pick/A Most-Anticipated Fall 2019 Cookbook at Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Epicurious, and Food 52
From the creator of the Bon Appétit-lauded food blog and CannelleVanille Instagram comes 100 recipes that show us how to bring more joy, mindfulness, and connection to the kitchen through family-friendly meals.
The recipes in this critically acclaimed cookbook are organized around the day: start off with Spicy Carrot, Grapefruit, and Sunflower juice Soft-cooked Eggs with Dukkah and Bitter Greens; and move on to Tomato, Corn, and Bread Salad at midday. There is a chapter of everyday dinners you can prepare on a weeknight, such as a simple spaghetti and meatballs supper or Braised Chicken with Apples and Cider. You’ll also find a chapter of menus to inspire you when you want to gather together a larger group of friends and family which Aran heartily encourages! She is especially known for her tender, gluten-free baking, and the book includes recipes for her sourdough bread, caramelized onion and fennel biscuits, and apple tarte tatin (with flour substitutions are included for those who aren’t gluten-free).
Filled with Aran’s gorgeous photographs, you will also find suggestions sprinkled throughout the book for creating a welcoming space with lighting, linens, flowers, and flatware, along with gentle encouragement to spend time in the kitchen nourishing yourself as well as those you love.
