Harvard Book Store welcomes award-winning cookbook author DORIE GREENSPAN for a discussion of her latest book, Everyday Dorie: The Way I Cook. She will be joined in conversation by journalist and food writer CORBY KUMMER.

About Everyday Dorie

To the hundreds of thousands who follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Dorie Greenspan’s food is powerfully cookable—her recipes instant classics. In Everyday Dorie, she invites readers into her kitchen to savor the dishes that she makes all the time, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to Lemon Goop.

What makes a “Dorie recipe”?

Each one has a small surprise that makes it special. Mustard and walnuts in the cheese puffs. Cherry tomatoes stuffed into red bell peppers and oven-charred. Cannellini beans in cod en papillote. The dishes are practical, made with common ingredients from the supermarket, farmers’ market, or pantry, like Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, which is both weeknight simple and fine enough for company, and Eton Mess, a beautifully casual dessert of crumbled meringue, fruit, and whipped cream. They are easygoing, providing swaps and substitutions. They invite mixing and matching. Many can be served as dinner, or as a side dish, or as an appetizer, or hot, cold, or room temperature. And every single one is like a best friend in the kitchen, full of Dorie’s infectious love of cooking and her trademark hand-holding directions.

Praise

“Dorie Greenspan, a guru in many different fields, is now turning to everyday cooking, bringing with her original ideas and lots of culinary know-how. In Everyday Dorie, a clam chowder can be made with Thai aromatics; bread pudding turns to a savory celebration; and cheesy gougères are lifted with a mustardy kick. Dorie isn’t a prisoner to tradition, and she gives you the liberty to vary, adapt and eat deliciously.” —Yotam Ottolenghi

“Dorie’s stuff works. It’s practical. It’s compelling. In Everyday Dorie she effortlessly represents how we cook today—a culinary mashup that promises a bigger helping of fun and adventure in the kitchen.” —Christopher Kimball

“If what you'd like more than anything else is to be invited over to Dorie's house, have her pour you a glass of wine and cook you something simple and comforting but irresistible, then this book is for you. Packed with elegant, yet accessible recipes, Everyday Dorie gives us a glimpse into the kitchen of one of our most beloved food writers and answers the eternal question of what to cook.” —Samin Nosrat
