  • Eat the Love by Irvin Lin

    It’s my go-to cookbook for entertaining a large crowd...I love how each recipe also shows ingredients for double batches in case you’re feeding an extra large crowd.

Food brings a community together.

With recipes for generous family-style, big-batch cooking by chefs, cooks, and big-hearted people, Feed Your People will inspire people to feed their people both literally and spiritually. From a Soup Swap Dinner by Kathy Gunst to a big pot of vegan greens and grits from Bryant Terry (AfroVegan); a gnocchi-making party with Angelo Garo to a summertime aioli feast by Georgeanne and Ethel Brennan; to a pig roast by Ryann Farr and Rodney Scott, and a lemon blueberry trifle for 20 by Emily Lucchetti, the book will feature festive foods to gather around. Most importantly, each recipe includes specific and helpful strategies, including make-ahead plans, freezing, equipment, and scaling and serving instructions as well as how to "make it to take it" (i.e., make a second batch of soup, cookies, Bolognese, etcetera for takeaway)!

Organized into chapters by method/strategy of cooking—Big Soups and Stews, Roasts and Braises, Grilling, Pastas and Rice Dishes, and recipes like dumplings and empanadas to cook with your people—the book will also include recipes for vegetables, sides, and sweets to round out meals. Each recipe will provide specific information on how to scale to feed from 4 to 40 and beyond. It will also show a diverse range of ethnic styles and budget concerns. All the food will be big-in-flavor, homey, comfort food.

Cooking for crowds isn't a new concept and cooking brilliantly for those crowds, with honest ingredients that feed the soul is a valuable skill. In the spirit of community, we are co-authoring the book with 18 Reasons, a nonprofit organization in San Francisco, that hosts community dinners and Cooking Matters programs and is committed to "empowering our community with confidence and creativity to buy, cook, and eat good food every day." Illustrated with gorgeous how-to and event photography, Our hope is that this book will be a practical, beautiful celebration of the art of cooking for your people and empower readers everywhere to to cook together and feed each other both literally and spiritually.
