Written by NYTimes Staff writer, Molly O'Neil, One Big Table is an expansive collection of stories and recipes from some of America’s best home cooks. And took years to conceive and create. With its deeply felt oral histories and cherished recipes gathered from cooks across America, this is a cookbook to be read as well as to cook from.
From Publishers Weekly:
O’Neill, former New York Times Magazine food writer and author (New York Cookbook), has compiled an informative and heartwarming refutation of the demise of American home cooking. Ten years and many miles in the making, this collection celebrates the nation’s culinary diversity, both ethnically and agriculturally, and offers a uniquely intimate look at what home cooking in America is truly like today. O’Neill crossed the country, interviewing home cooks and spending time in the kitchens of recent immigrants.
