Bestselling author and chef Lynn Crawford teams up with chef Lora Kirk to deliver more than 140 super-delicious recipes for casual home cooking to enjoy family-style.

Chefs Lynn Crawford and Lora Kirk share their favourite family-style recipes for everyday cooking and casual celebrations at home. Creating a family meal: setting the table, sharing dishes passed around the table in large bowls or platters and enjoying it with one another is cooking at its best. Cook together and eat together—it just does not get any better than that. Sitting down and enjoying a meal together is one of the greatest gifts we can give one another.

Hearth & Home features over 140 delicious and comforting recipes—from Turkey Cheddar Biscuit Pot Pie and Honey-Garlic Ribs to Buttery Mashed Potatoes and Sweet Onion Cornbread—that are all achievable for any home cook. Most of these dishes come together quickly with few ingredients and basic techniques. Inside you will find many mains, an abundance of side dishes and show-stopping desserts to create and share a meal family-style, whether it is a quick weeknight supper, a weekend get-together or a special-occasion celebration. The book includes suggestions for building a family-style meal, but feel free to create your own feast of shared plates.
