There is something incredibly human in gathering together around the dinner table. It is a custom that spans every period of history, in every culture, in every part of the world. Because as humans, we innately crave the connection that comes with breaking bread. When we gather around the table, we nourish not only our bodies, but our souls. Memories are made, adventures planned and relationships cemented when we gather around the table. Bad news and sorrows are softened by sharing comfort food friends and celebrations elevated with bubbles and a celebratory meal.
I’m so excited to introduce this new section of Live Life Love Food. Here, you will find recipes that are worthy of feeding your loved ones when you gather them around your table. Traditional holidays, anniversaries, reunions, promotions, new babies, loss of loved ones, engagements, housewarmings and going away parties. Or just a laid back Wednesday with the friends you’ve been saying “We should get together for a meal” to for six months now.
Make the call, invite your people, choose a recipe and make some cozy memories as you gather your people around your table.
We’ll be adding to this section periodically, so check back often for new recipes and tips on things like how to do everything ahead of time, and how to host an enjoyable dinner party with children.
