Really, what can’t Julia Turshen do? She’s written bestselling cookbooks, including an inspiring (yet accessible!) guide to activist cooking and, most recently, launched Equity at the Table, a website focused on giving creative women and gender non-conforming food industry professionals, especially POC and the LGBT community, a place to be seen. And now, she’s ready to make cooking even more approachable.

In her forthcoming cookbook Now & Again, Turshen has cooked up a love letter to what we all have sitting in our fridges—leftovers.

“Cooking for someone is the biggest gesture of love you can do,” Turshen says. “But I always cook more than I can possibly eat, and I love turning leftovers into something new.”

Since those leftovers have to come from somewhere, Now & Again will include a slew of Turshen’s favorite recipes, from holiday menus to weeknight go-tos, as well as her smart ideas for giving those meals a second life.

Now & Again doesn’t come out until September 2018, but we’re excited to share an exclusive first look here today, in the form of this beautiful book trailer:

Equally exciting? Ashley Cimone of Equator Productions, who is a member of Equity at the Table, art directed and produced this heartwarming video for Turshen. To preorder your own copy of Now & Again, head here!
