NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the New York Times food editor and former restaurant critic comes to a cookbook to help us rediscover the art of Sunday supper and the joy of gathering with friends and family.
“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 more complicated than that.” Regular dinners with family and friends, he argues, are a metaphor for connection, 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 eat.
