See You on Sunday: A Cookbook for Family and Friends

New York Times food editor Sifton’s (Thanksgiving: How To Cook It Well) latest is a guide to cooking simple meals for casual gatherings, the kind of Sunday night suppers where friends and family gather for fellowship. Because the intent is to easily and frequently produce food for many people, many dishes rely on grains and legumes or inexpensive cuts of meat stretched by sauces or gravies. Most of the recipes are familiar crowd-pleasers such as spaghetti Bolognese, hard-shell tacos, and potato salad. The desserts chapter features large-batch, mostly fruit-based desserts such as cobblers and crisps that can be made with whatever is available.
VERDICT Though large-scale entertaining is not an option as we practice social distancing, this book is equally well suited to cooks looking to stock their fridge or freezer with food that could serve for several meals over the course of a week or longer.
