The Pollan Family
Wednesday, May 6th at 7 p.m.
The Pollan Family, author of The Pollan Family Table, will be our featured speakers.
Sitting down together for dinner every night has been the cornerstone of the Pollan family for generations. Corky Pollan, despite a busy career as the Style Director of Gourmet magazine and the acclaimed Best Bets editor at New York magazine, managed to make wholesome and nourishing meals every night for her husband and four children, utilizing local and fresh ingredients long before the advent of the ―eat local movement. The shared family meal inspired Corky’s daughters ― Dana, Tracy, and Lori ― to carry the tradition into their adult lives, making it a point to cook and share meals with their own families. This stunning and practical cookbook gives readers the tools they need to implement the Pollan food philosophy in their everyday lives and to make great, nourishing, delectable meals that bring families back to the table.
The inspiration for The Pollan Family Table began when Dana, Tracy, and Lori––busy with careers, marriages, and children––found themselves routinely calling each other to ask, ―What are you making for dinner tonight? ―We kept turning to each other for fresh ideas whenever we felt stuck or we would regularly call Mom and ask for one of her recipes. Although we each had a large repertoire of our families’ favorite dishes, we would find ourselves, time and again, unable to remember the whole range of possibilities.
