Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Gilbert
“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.”
Everyday Food
“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”
Adam Rapoport
“I can’t decide which I like more—reading this book or cooking from it. Jenny is that rare writer who can literally make you laugh and cry—and most importantly, she inspires you to stop just talking about dinner and start making it.”
Samantha Bee
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.”
Gretchen Rubin
“Warm, funny, packed with recipes and photos, and reassuringly nonjudgmental, it will help inspire the most faint-hearted of cooks to pre-heat the oven.”
Amanda Hesser
“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.”
Bon Appétit
“…compelling…more than just another cookbook. We love Rosenstrach because her writing is natural, honest, and smart”
Wired.com
“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…”

Enthusiastic two thumbs up (actually four thumbs) for this great book and blog by Jenny Rosenstrach. Guilt-reducing, inspiring, funny, and loaded with great dinner recipes, this book helps even the beginning—or thinking about beginning—cook discover the potential of dinner as “the emotional anchor to our days.” –Mary Beth Lagerborg and Mimi Wilson, Once-a-Month Cooking.

Dinner: A Love Story takes readers on a wonderful journey from the first blush of romance to life with a lovely family of four - all through the lense of a fantastic story/recipe writer/gatherer. The book is accessible to all - from the timid to the adventurous, and gave this reader hope that perhaps, one day, my children will eat something beyond peanut butter crackers and yogurt drinks for dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed every page, and feel like I not only know Jenny and her family, but also trust her implicitly. Oh, and I'm buying copies for everyone I can think of so I can share my joy!
