Harvard Book Store's virtual event series welcomes beloved food writer JULIA TURSHEN—bestselling author of Now & AgainFeed the Resistance, and Small Victories—for a discussion of her latest cookbook, Simply Julia: 110 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food. She will be joined in conversation by fellow home chef and recipe expert CLAIRE SAFFITZ, author of Dessert Person.

Details

Julia Turshen has always been cooking. As a kid, she skipped the Easy-Bake Oven and went straight to the real thing. Throughout her life, cooking has remained a constant, and as fans of her popular books know, Julia’s approach to food is about so much more than putting dinner on the table—it is about love, community, connection, and nourishment of the body and soul.

In Simply Julia, readers will find 110 foolproof recipes for more nutritious takes on the simple, comforting meals Julia cooks most often. With practical chapters such as weeknight go-tos, make-ahead mains, vegan one-pot meals, chicken recipes, easy baked goods, and more, Simply Julia provides endlessly satisfying options comprised of accessible and affordable ingredients. Think dishes like Stewed Chicken with Sour Cream + Chive Dumplings, Hasselback Carrots with Smoked Paprika, and Lemon Ricotta Cupcakes—the kind of flavorful yet unfussy food everyone wants to make at home.

In addition to her tried-and-true recipes, readers will find Julia’s signature elements—her “Seven Lists” (Seven Things I Learned From Being a Private Chef that Make Home Cooking Easier; Seven Ways to Use Leftover Buttermilk; Seven Ways to Use Leftover Egg Whites or Egg Yolks), menu suggestions, and helpful adaptations for dietary needs, along with personal essays and photos and gorgeous food photography.

Like Melissa Clark’s Dinner or Ina Garten’s Modern Comfort FoodSimply Julia is sure to become an instant classic, the kind of cookbook that will inspire home cooks to create great meals for years to come.
