JeanMarie Brownson has long been a beloved chef and food writer, from her time as the Chicago Tribune's test kitchen director and associate food editor to her ongoing professional partnership with the iconic Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, Xoco). Since 2007, Brownson has chronicled her life of cooking in a series of Chicago Tribune columns, the best of which have been hand-picked to form her newest cookbook, Dinner at Home: 140 Recipes to Enjoy with Family and Friends. This book features inventive and easy-to-make recipe ideas, along with gorgeous full-color photography. Organized by course, Dinner at Home also devotes chapters to holiday dinners, party snacks, rubs and sauces, and "breakfast for dinner." Readers will enjoy the seasonal menus, such as those for special occasions (Anniversary Dinner, Ultimate Father's Day, and Sunday Brunch) as well as themed meals (Manhattan Cocktail Party, Saturday Night Beer Tasting, and Wish We Were in Ireland Supper). For Brownson, cooking for others ranks as one of life's greatest pleasures, and her passion for creating trustworthy, approachable recipes is clear throughout Dinner at Home. This book is a must-have for home cooks who love the time spent gathered around the table with friends, family, and delicious meals.
