old beloved standbys See You on Sunday offers both old and new basics in easy to follow recipes for both weeknight dinners and entertaining The recipes feature ingredients that you have in your home or are easily available Except for Dessert, the chapters are based on what you would like to cook rather than courses Birds, Big Pots, Pasta, Taco Night A surprising Chapter 11, A Nice Party features just four recipes that I won t give away here I received a copy from Random House in exchange for a free and unbiased review And I m glad I did See You on Sunday is my new go to gift for new graduates, new couples, new home, new apartment you name it And it is just what my old basic recipes needed some freshening up The crazier the world gets, thewe depend on our phones, thewe crave basic human connection And what better way to connect with family and friends than over a delicious dinner Sam Sifton gets that As the Food Editor for The New York Times, he understands both the hectic schedule of daily life and that inner drive for fellowship with others And he s come up with some ideas that can help us all, starting with chicken Really, he starts his new cookbook, See You on Sunday, with a bun The crazier the world gets, thewe depend on our phones, thewe crave basic human connection And what better way to connect with family and friends than over a delicious dinner Sam Sifton gets that As the Food Editor for The New York Times, he understands both the hectic schedule of daily life and that inner drive for fellowship with others And he s come up with some ideas that can help us all, starting with chicken Really, he starts his new cookbook, See You on Sunday, with a bunch of good information about how to plan and create a weekly supper that will feed and sustain the soul as well as the body He talks the practical advice of picking wine, setting the table, even warming the plates all the details that help provide the hospitality without formality But then he moves on to the best part the food There is a big chapter on chicken Why is that Because it s one of our favorite foods here in America, and it s relatively inexpensive A couple of roast chickens can go in the oven with just some simple seasoning, and an hour or so later, you have a hearty dinner Or maybe you don t want to do just another roast chicken Then try the recipe for Chicken Adobo, Chicken Milanese, Chicken Paprika, Chicken Provencal, Chicken Shawarma, or Oven Roasted Buffalo Chicken Wings From there the ideas go to Big Meats Pulled pork, ribs, pork chops, ham, roast beef, brisket, steaks, lamb Then he talks Big Pots, like Chili, Gumbo, Beef Stew, Beef Stroganoff, and Mapo Ragu There are recipes for pastas, beans, rice, seafood, vegetables There are a few words about salads, tips about serving breads, ideas for desserts And because Sifton understands us, there is an entire chapter on Taco Night, and another just on pizza The most important thing about these recipes is that they meet us where we are He s not trying to get us to create a whole different lifestyle He doesn t want us to throw formal dinner parties or if we do, to make those separate from these Sunday suppers He wants us to create meals that nourish our relationships and our spirits as well as our bodies He gives us thoughtful options for keeping our grocery bill low or for stepping out of our comfort zone and trying something new He doesn t care about the Instagram worthiness of the food He just wants it to taste good, and for those gathered to enjoy themselves See You on Sunday is a big cookbook with lots of gorgeous photos But they re not the glossy, magazine styled overly styled pages that you might expect from an Important Cookbook The photos make the food craveable but realistic, honest, pure This book is written from the perspective of a friend who you asked for advice on what to serve for dinner He just has a bigger idea of what your dinner should be, and he wants you to jump on board and get excited about the idea too And you know what For me, I think it worked I love this idea, and while I m not sure we can pull off this kind of meal every week, we can certainly try to do itoften Especially with all these lovely recipes to try out I ve received a free copy of See You on Sunday from Random House in exchange for a free and unbiased review See You on Sunday is the latest cookbook by Sam Sifton, the food editor of the New York Times Subtitled A Cookbook for Family and Friends, the book evolved from the author s many years of cooking Sunday dinners

care not to include too many expensive ingredients Since the focus is on feeding a group, all recipes yield about six average servings and can easily be made to serveRecipes are delicious and hearty and I think this would be a good cookbook for those starting out and for those with no dietary restrictions The majority of the recipes are meat or carb heavy Pork, sausage, and bacon are plentiful and are even included in bean, pasta, and vegetable dishes Dairy, flour, and alcohol tend to also be common ingredients I feel that some of the recipes such as for white rice, brown rice, corn on the cob, and garlic bread are not actually recipes butlike instructions on how to prepare these items This coupled with the fact that recipes tend to be for tried and true items such as potatoes, chili, tacos, stew, BBQ items, sauces, and pizza is why I feel that this would be a wonderful cookbook for new cooks More seasoned chefs most likely already have favorite recipes for the majority of these I really appreciate the message of focusing on the experience of gathering together that this book imparts However, in this day and age where most everyone I know is vegan, gluten or dairy free, or simply trying to cut back on meat especially processed meat consumption, I simply feel that this is not the cookbook for me.Disclosure I received a free copy from Random House in exchange for a free

copy from Random House in exchange for a free and unbiased review NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the New York Times food editor and former restaurant critic comes a cookbook to help us rediscover the art of Sunday supper and the joy of gathering with friends and family A book to make home cooks, and those they feed, very happy indeed Nigella Lawson People are lonely, Sam Sifton writes They want to be part of something, even when they can t identify that longing as a need They show up Feed them It isn t much complicated than that Regular dinners with family and friends, he argues, are a metaphor for connection, a space where memories can be shared as easily as salt or hot sauce, where deliciousness reigns The point of Sunday supper is to gather around a table with good company and eatFrom years spent talking to restaurant chefs, cookbook authors, and home cooks in connection with his daily work at The New York Times, Sam Sifton s See You on Sunday is a book to make those dinners possible It is a guide to preparing meals for groups larger than the average American family though everything here can be scaled down, or up Therecipes are mostly simple and inexpensive You are not a feudal landowner entertaining the serfs , and they derive from decades spent cooking for family and groups ranging from six to sixtyFrom big meats to big pots, with a few words on salad, and a diatribe on the needless complexity of desserts, See You on Sunday is an indispensable addition to any home cook s library From how to shuck an oyster to the perfection of Mallomars with flutes of milk, from the joys of grilled eggplant to those of gumbo and bog, this book is devoted to the preparation of delicious proteins and grains, vegetables and desserts, taco nights and pizza parties I
