Editorial Reviews

Mario Batali
“The Pollans have hit the ball out of the park with their first book, celebrating deliciously simple and poetically tasty food for my family (and everyone else's) to love every day. The shopping lists are easy and concise, the recipes simple and straightforward, and the photographs drive me insane with the urge to sprint first to the market and then to the kitchen and to start cooking right NOW. I simply cannot wait to cook from this book.”
Michael J. Fox
"Tracy’s family set a place for me at the Pollan Family Table, over 25 years ago now. This gorgeous book brings to mind so many holiday meals and other family gatherings as well as countless smaller moments when we could have just had a meal on the fly but instead made time to sit together and share. This is what my life tastes like. Enjoy."

Trying to find "safe" food is a challenge in today's supermarket. This is a wonderful guide. Although I am allergic to canola oil, it is easily substituted.

These are really delicious recipes with both great instructions for beginning cooks as well as sophisticated dishes for more experienced cooks. I find the special sections very helpful and unique--Essential Utensils, Pollan Pantry, Sage Advice, Culinary ABC's and especially the market and Pantry list on each recipe telling me exactly what ingredients I need from the store. The pictures of the dishes are mouth watering and the family shots are so fun. This cookbook is awesome-- I definitely plan on giving this book to friends and family for Christmas!

I have made several recipes from this book--all easy to follow with great results. Worth having on the home cookbook shelf.

I own hundreds of cookbooks, and I would have to say this is one of my absolute favorites!  The photography is gorgeous, but most of all, every recipe is delicious and wholesome.  Pollan Signature Salad, Chopped Italian Salad with Chicken Milanese, Smokey Sauteed Shrimp, Panfried Halibut with Chimichurri Sauce, Perfect Mariana Sauce (yes, it really is perfect),- everything I have made is destined to become a recipe I come back to over and over again.
