“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.”

"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."
