Modern Potluck: Beautiful Recipes to Share, Signed Copy
+ $ shipping surcharge
Ready your casserole dish.
In this perpetually instagrammable age, throwing a dinner party can be a daunting task. Kristin Donnelly, a former editor at Food & Wine, felt the pressure of impressing food-savvy friends, appeasing gluten-free-vegan-paleo dieters, and feeding many mouths. In Modern Potluck, Kristin finds a renewed appreciation for the potlucks of yore—assuring us that a crowdsourced dinner is so much less stressful and way more fun than going at it alone.
Her collection of crowd-pleasing, just-impressive-enough dishes (her words) are potluck-ready. The casserole is given new life in her chapter “The 9x13-Inch Pan” with Smoky Squash Mac & Cheese and Moroccan-Inspired Shepherd’s Pie. Salads that wilt on the car-ride over are replaced with heartier counterparts like Grilled Corn Salad with Lime Mayo, Cilantro, and Radishes and Coconut-Roasted Squash Wedges with Lemongrass-Shallot Relish. And no one goes home without something sweet, like Plum-Ginger Coffee Cake and Rye-Maple Banana Bread. Donnelly invites her friends to join, too: they contribute their own recipes and advice to make it a true potluck of a cookbook!
