About the Author

Jenny Rosenstrach is the creator of Dinner: A Love Story, a website devoted to family dinner, and a contributor at Bon Appétit magazine.


"Rosenstrach emphasizes her strong belief that the family who eats together stays together and combines stories and recipes in this essential collection."--Publishers Weekly
"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."--Amanda Hesser, co-founder of FOOD52.com
"A humorous and encouraging book for readers who believe in the importance of family dinnertime."--Kirkus Reviews
"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."--Elizabeth Gilbert, Bestselling author of EAT, PRAY, LOVE
"[Rosenstrach] entertains with her wonderful writing skills, persuades by sharing her successful strategies, and educates via research and relayed experience... this book shines."--Library Journal
"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"--Everyday Food
"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..."--Wired.com
"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."--Samantha Bee, Most Senior Correspondent, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and bestselling author of I Know I Am But What Are You?
"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."--Gretchen Rubin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
"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."--Adam Rapoport, Editor in Chief, Bon Appétit
"...compelling...more than just another cookbook. We love Rosenstrach because her writing is natural, honest, and smart"--Bon Appétit
