On today's episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Kristin Donnelly asks that everyone bring a dish. Growing up outside of Philly, a family full of dozens of aunts, uncles and cousins, every birthday and holiday was a potluck. After years of the same old casserole, Kristin became a trained cook, and began writing about food, eventually joining staff at Food & Wine Magazine. There, she focused on well-being, and while exposed to top chefs techniques and recipes across many lands, she looked to apply these flavor concepts to how she feeds her family at home. In her cookbook, "Modern Potluck", Kristin not only enables us how to prepare Deviled Eggs 4 ways, Seven Layer Salad with Mediterranean spices and quinoa, Stuffed Poblano Peppers, Scallion Pull-Apart Bread, and a selection of pies (sweet, savory, and slab), but also guides you how to bring them to the party without worry. An updated look into the conviviality of shared meals, Kristin takes away the stress of cooperative entertaining, which in turn, brings us closer together.
