About this site
Hello, and welcome to The Cookbook Chronicles, a blog that showcases the recipe-testing I’m doing for my first cookbook: The Newlywed Kitchen: Delicious Meals for Couples Cooking Together. The cookbook is published by Sasquatch Books, and will be in stores May 2010.
As a newlywed, I feel incredibly fortunate to have also found someone who views the occasion of preparing and sharing a meal as one of the most intimate and loving rites a couple can experience. My husband and I are fairly accomplished home cooks and during the three years we’ve been together, we’ve celebrated many of our milestone events together in the kitchen—from preparing duck ragu for his family when I met his family for the first time, to hosting our first Thanksgiving together, where we challenged one another to a “Turkey-off”. Our relationship was founded on our mutual love of food and our desire to nourish one another’s stomachs as well as our spirits. And with this cookbook, we hope to inspire newlyweds (and couples who still have that newlywed spark!) to return to the kitchen and enjoy preparing meals side-by-side once again.
Ali Basye, the editor at Seattle Bride magazine is also contributing to this project. Our cookbook will be peppered by intimate stories from celebrity chefs and their spouses who shared their secrets to happiness in and out of the kitchen with Ali. Ali and I met when she featured our wedding in Seattle Bride.
