Review

"Rosenstrach emphasizes her strong belief that the family who eats together stays together and combines stories and recipes in this essential collection."--Publishers Weekly

"The family dinner, that forum for manners, taste-making, storytelling, and memorable arguments, is no small subject. Jenny Rosenstrach tackles it with gusto as she shares her fascinating story of learning to feed her family....[N]ot only a wonderful read, but a book studded with excellent recipes and tips."--Amanda Hesser, co-founder of FOOD52.com

"A humorous and encouraging book for readers who believe in the importance of family dinnertime."--Kirkus Reviews

"Jenny Rosenstrach writes about food and family with such a marvelous spirit of warmth, friendship and-most importantly-pragmatism that you simply can't help but fall in love with her. As long as people keep having kids, jobs, marriages and appetites, this cookbook is destined to remain a classic."--Elizabeth Gilbert, Bestselling author of EAT, PRAY, LOVE

"[Rosenstrach] entertains with her wonderful writing skills, persuades by sharing her successful strategies, and educates via research and relayed experience... this book shines."--Library Journal

"Part cookbook, part survival guide, Dinner: A Love Story has all of Jenny's favorite meal ideas, suppertime tips, and cook's secrets (read: cocktails) that help make dinner fun again"--Everyday Food

."..compelling...more than just another cookbook. We love Rosenstrach because her writing is natural, honest, and smart"--Bon App?tit

"At first glance, it's a cookbook, based on a blog, by Jenny Rosenstrach, a magazine columnist and editor who lives outside New York City. But really, it's a memoir, and also a how-to manual: a smart, pragmatic, warm and thoughtful guide..."--Wired.com

""Dinner" gives me hope that one day my family will also assemble around an actual table and eat an actual meal that was actually cooked by me; a meal not solely comprised of animal shaped cheese crackers dipped in hummus. Although those are good too."--Samantha Bee, Most Senior Correspondent, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and bestselling author of "I Know I Am But What Are You?"

From the Back Cover

Jenny Rosenstrach, and her husband, Andy, regularly, some might say pathologically, cook dinner for their family every night. Even when they work long days. Even when their kids' schedules pull them in eighteen different directions. They are not superhuman. They are not from another planet.

With simple strategies and common sense, Jenny figured out how to break down dinner--the food, the timing, the anxiety, from prep to cleanup--so that her family could enjoy good food, time to unwind, and simply be together.

Using the same straight-up, inspiring voice that readers of her award-winning blog, Dinner: A Love Story, have come to count on, Jenny never judges and never preaches. Every meal she dishes up is a real meal, one that has been cooked and eaten and enjoyed at least a half dozen times by someone in Jenny's house. With inspiration and game plans for any home cook at any level, Dinner: A Love Story is as much for the novice who doesn't know where to start as it is for the gourmand who doesn't know how to start over when she finds herself feeding an intractable toddler or for the person who never thought about home-cooked meals until he or she became a parent. This book is, in fact, for anyone interested in learning how to make a meal to be shared with someone they love, and about how so many good, happy things happen when we do.
