Bring It! is out! It's all about a new kind of potluck or casual meal: a gathering of friends and delicious dishes that still manage to impress. I have been so overwhelmed with the response to the book and I'm sharing all the updates here. If you want to see all the places where Bring It! has been featured - from Harry Connick Jr's show to Oprah to Martha Stewart - see below for it all. - Ali
We love the convenience of a potluck, but Bring It! is making sure that we love the food at a potluck. Complete with strategies, tips, and tricks, Ali Rosen is saving our dinner parties one dish at a time.” —Carla Hall, co-host of The Chew
“Gathering together to break bread invites connection and joy. Ali shows us exactly how easy (and delicious!) making food to share with others can be. I love how Ali takes covered-dish classics and gives them a tiny tweak: her Chocolate and Walnut Rice Krispies Bars and Cauliflower Gratin are pure genius. Bring It! is a true celebration of feasting together.”
—Melissa d’Arabian, author of Supermarket Healthy and host of Food Network’s Ten Dollar Dinners
“Ali Rosen has captured the desire to cook and feed others with the things that make it possible to do it easily and with grace. Knowing how to tote food without disaster is as important as how to make it delicious. And as my grandmother said, many hands make light work.”
—Nathalie Dupree, James Beard award-winning author of Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking
“Ali gets how we want to cook and eat, entertain friends and family, and spend time together around the table. The recipes are easy and stylish and her tips for how to bring whatever you’ve made across town or country are perfect. It’s a smart and delicious book!”
—Dorie Greenspan, James Beard award-winning author of Dorie’s Cookies
And from the media:
Harry Connick Jr said he loved me.
Local papers have kindly run some awesome recipes. AM New York got excited with a recipe for Shephards Pie. My hometown paper, The Post and Courier, loves the tomato tart. The Miami Herald was very into puff pastry recipes. The San Diego Tribune enjoyed the mustard carrots.The Parkersberg Sentinel got nitty gritty into potlucks. San Antonio is ready for strawberry sandwiches!
And the Epoch Times ran an article called How to Succeed at Potlucks Without Really Trying, which is such a great encapsulation of what the book is about. Refinery29 also gave us some love and shared a few recipes.
