How to Celebrate Everything
Recipes and Rituals for Birthdays, Holidays, Family Dinners, and Every Day in BetweenBook - 2016
"From the creator of the popular blog and book Dinner: A Love Story and author of theNew York TimesbestsellerDinner: The Playbookcomes a warm and inviting guide with more than one hundred time-tested recipes and a host ofinspiringideas for turning birthdays, holidays, and everyday occasions into cherished traditions. "Families crave rituals," says Jenny Rosenstrach, and by rituals she means not just the big celebrations--Valentine's Day dinners, Mother's Day brunches, Thanksgiving feasts--but the little ones we may not even realize are rituals: A platter of deluxe nachos on Super Bowl Sunday or a bowl ofcreamy mashed potatoes after every braces-tightening session. Whether simple or elaborate, daily or annually, these rituals all serve the same purpose for Rosenstrach: to bring comfort, connection, and meaning to everyday family life. Recipes here are organized into groupings unique to Rosenstrach but familiar to everyone: Our Family Rituals (think tomato sandwiches for lunch after a family walk to the market, or homemade popovers on sleepover mornings); Holidays We Didn't Invent, including Friday Challah and Easter Ham (yes, both, more on that inside); a Halloween Launch Party for trick-or-treaters, featuring a self-serve simmering pot of Chicken Chorizo Chili. A section on Birthdays includes Rosenstrach's legendary chocolate frosted "mud" cake as well as a one-size-fits-all party planner with menus that donotrely on pizza. Lastly, in Family Dinners you'll findcelebratory Sunday meals (Soy-Glazed Grilled Pork Chops, HarissaRoasted Chicken, Summer Cobbler) alongside Rosenstrach's signature easy weeknight fare (Crispy Chickpeas and Yogurt, Shrimp Tacos with Avocado "Butter," and vegetable-packed Burrito Bowls)--all of which translate to prime quality time with the family. In this digital, overscheduled age, How to Celebrate Everythinghelps families slow down, capture the moments that matter--and eat well while doing it"-- Provided by publisher.
