The Family Table

Excerpt from The Family Table

If there is one cookbook you need in your kitchen, it's The Family Table. Written by cooking instructor and television celebrity chef Christy Rost, this comprehensive cookbook gives you delicious, nutritious, and easy-to-make recipes for the entire year. Divided into four practical sections—Everyday Meals, Weekends, Entertaining at Home, and Holidays—there are recipes for every occasion. Recipes range from all-American favorites, like Old Chicago Minestrone and Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins to international delights, like Beef Sukiyaki and Tomato Galette.

Whether you are a family of five, a couple, or a single person, The Family Table inspires all of us to savor our meals together. "Whether we dine as a family or set a few extra places for others to join us, gathering around the table provides us the opportunity to celebrate the most important things in life—love, family, good health, and good friends." Christy Rost believes that the act of sharing meals is the glue that holds families and friends together.
