Cookbooks for Mom: Dinner: A Love Story by Jenny Rosenstrach

This week, we’ll be highlighting a cookbook each day that we think would be a great Mother’s Day gift. These are cookbooks we’ve each used in our own home cooking—and, these are authors we all enjoy working with. In addition to being great chefs, bakers, or cookbook authors, they’re just terrific people. What could be better to give your mom on Mother’s Day than a collection of delicious recipes invented by a great person? To kick things off, we welcome Ben Tomek from the Ecco Books team, as he share with us Dinner: A Love Story.

We are such fans of Jenny Rosenstrach and her thoroughly entertaining, inspiring blog that we couldn’t be more thrilled to be publishing Dinner: A Love Story, the book (you can watch the video here).

Jenny and her husband Andy bring an attitude, energy, team spirit, and seemingly effortless commitment to family dinner which inspires anyone to make cooking for those they love a worthwhile, happy, satisfying experience. With simple strategies and common sense, Jenny figured out how to break down dinner—the food, the timing, the anxiety, from prep to clean-up—so that her family could enjoy good food, time to unwind, and simply be together

Not only is each recipe in the book a real meal, one that has been cooked and eaten and enjoyed at least a half-dozen times by someone in Jenny’s house, but we here at Ecco can personally vouch that these recipes were as easy and delicious cooked in our own kitchens.


The book isn’t on sale until June 5, but if you act this week we’re offering special extras for Mother’s Day. Pre-order Dinner: A Love Story by May 10, enter your information here and we’ll send an email to the special mother in your life on Mother’s Day letting her know that the book will be on its way to her when it comes out, and we’ll send you a bookplate signed by Jenny to give with your book and a “MAKE DINNER NOT WAR” bumper sticker.
