About the Books

"Dining In: Highly Cookable Recipes"

The first born, the one that gave you Salted Butter Chocolate Chunk Shortbread and Anchovy Butter Chicken (with anchovy butter croutons). You’ll also find pantry staple guidance, recipes for basic condiments like Salsa Verdes and Crunchy Chili Oil, and a well-rounded collection of every-day recipes, including Weeknight Fish Stew with Crushed Tomato and Olives and a whole chapter on FRUIT SALAD.

"Nothing Fancy: Unfussy Food for Having People Over":

Second in line but not in our hearts, "Nothing Fancy" isn’t just for having people over: these recipes translate to excellent dinners for four (or for two with leftovers). Practical as it is inspiring, there’s a whole chapter on SNACKS, so you know it’s gonna get a lot of use. Here, you’ll find the perennial classic Lemony Turmeric Tea Cake, the internet-favorite Buttered Salmon with Red Onion and Lots Of Dill (the correct amount of dill), and personal favorites: Frizzled Chickpeas and Onion with Oregano and Feta and One-Pot Chicken with Caramelized Lemon and Dates, all suitable for having people over (or not).

"Sweet Enough: Desserts for People Who Don’t Do Dessert":

The third book to join the family, "Sweet Enough" is a dessert book for people who dream of desserts, who like desserts, and who don’t do desserts. It’s for the once-a-year bakers, the twice a week cake makers, for those who can only manage to open a carton of heavy cream and pour it onto some fresh fruit. This book is for everyone at every level, and I can’t wait for you to read it.
