people who love us
I love these girls and their tasty, delicious, no-nonsense cooking.
This eccentrically enjoyable book by two strange and wonderful women
may well be the cookbook America needs right now. Fun, deliberately unintimidating
and filled with interesting—even ingenious—recipes, it inspires
the non-professional to raise their game-and have a good time while doing
so. Both book and authors are clearly good for the world.
In Forking Fantastic, Tamara and Zora share their gift of creating
easy and delicious meals with wonderful stories, tips, and recipes—reminding
us all that good food is about sitting around a table and eating, drinking,
talking, and laughing.
chef / owner of Oleana Restaurant and author of Spice
This book will help you relax, remind you to slug some
wine for courage, and inspire you to corral some friends and friendly
strangers. Like the best hosts, the book is full of great stories and
generous with advice and encouragement. Cheers to more Sunday night suppers—on
any day, at any hour!
chef and co-founder of ripe Family Supper, chef / owner of Beast
Ah, yes: peek, and much more…into what these gals get excited about,
and share in delicious bites. You too will discover your inner chef. I
know I have.
author of Chocolate Obsession
For too long, food writing has made actual cooking seem intimidating
and complicated. Tamara and Zora's style leads you along with wit and
humor and lots of great tips, to the point where you will be having great
convivial dinner parties with interesting food every week without even
having to think about it.
