Announcing “The Family Cooks”


I am so pleased to announce that our follow-up to The Family Dinner, a new book entitled The Family Cooks, will be published this April. Kirstin and I worked up more than 100 recipes that are simple, fast, healthy, and designed to bring your children into the cooking process. Our goal was to demystify cooking and help you and your kids learn basic techniques, to make it easier for you create stress-free, healthy meals that will not only bring your family together but also help to fight the public health crises of diabetes and obesity.

As explored in director Stephanie Soechtig’s documentary film Fed Up, which recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (I was honored to serve as Executive Producer, along with Katie Couric), childhood obesity is a national epidemic. Generations of kids will now live shorter lives than their parents. But there is a simple solution: healthy, home-cooked meals.

Kirstin and I hope the new book will inspire you to cook at home more frequently, and get your family craving food that’s simple, tasty and incredibly good for you.

If you would like to pre-order The Family Cooks, it is available now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, and Books-a-Million.

Thanks for your continuing support.
