Special Dinner #244: What’s for Dinner, America?
Food expert Molly Stevens teaches us how to cook!
America is home. How can we capture the rich, diverse history of our country in the food we cook in our own kitchens? If there is anyone who can teach us, it is James Beard award-winning cooking instructor and cookbook author, Molly Stevens.
In 2007, Molly won Bon Appetit’s ‘Cooking Teacher of the Year’ award for being “[one of the] extraordinary men and women—people like Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, and Mario Batali … who have made an indelible mark on the way we eat, drink, cook, read, and entertain.”
Molly’s new cookbook, All About Dinner: Expert Advice for Everyday Meals, will be released just in time for her to join us at the Roadhouse in November. She will connect us to time-tested recipes using simple ingredients – dishes we can recreate every day!
“A quintessential Molly Stevens cookbook—instructive, encouraging, and brimming with home run recipes. All About Dinner exemplifies why she is one of America’s most respected cooking voices,” says Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day.
For the past 16 years, the Roadhouse has connected with food professionals from around the country to learn about American foodways. We are proud and humbled to serve the food we learn about, and to share the stories of these artisans with our friends. Join us as we welcome back Molly Stevens!
