Julia Turshen: Now & Again

We are so excited to welcome back to Ann Arbor food writer Julia Turshen who will be sharing with us her latest cookbook Now & Again: Go-To Recipies, Inspired Menus + Endless Ideas for Reinventing Leftovers. Julia will be in conversation with Chef Kate Williams of Lady of the House restaurant in Detroit and journalist Ashley Woods

About Now & Again:
Small Victories, one of the most beloved cookbooks of 2016, introduced us to the lovely Julia Turshen and her mastery of show-stopping home cooking, and her second book, Feed the Resistance, moved a nation, winning Eater Cookbook of the Year in 2017. In Now & Again, the follow-up to what Real Simple called "an inspiring addition to any kitchen bookshelf," more than 125 delicious and doable recipes and 20 creative menu ideas help cooks of any skill level to gather friends and family around the table to share a meal (or many!) together. This cookbook comes to life with Julia's funny and encouraging voice and is brimming with good stuff, including:

- can't-get-enough-of-it recipes 
- inspiring menus for social gatherings, holidays and more 
- helpful timelines for flawlessly throwing a party 
- oh-so-helpful "It's Me Again" recipes, which show how to use leftovers in new and delicious ways 
- tips on how to be smartly thrifty with food choices

Now & Again will change the way we gather, eat, and think about leftovers, and, like the name suggests, you'll find yourself reaching for its pages time and time again.

An extension of the Slow Food movement, it’s meant to beautifully prepare food that would otherwise be thrown away on the farm.
