Marion Cunningham, known throughout the country as today's Fannie Farmer and the 2003 winner of the James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award, dedicates her new book to getting America back to the family table.

In these days of chef-inspired fancy creations, it is a great pleasure--and relief!--to have these lost recipes for family-style eating. From the chapter Soups: The Pot That Needs No Watching, choose a Ham and Bean or Tomato Bread Soup to make a whole supper. In Yesterday's Side Dish--Today's Vegetarian Centerpiece you'll find rarebits, Spanish Rice, and Southern Corn Pudding.

Interspersed throughout are excerpts from writers--from Jeffrey Steingarten to David Gergen to Laurie Colwin--celebrating the family meal (and bemoaning its loss). Marion Cunningham exhorts us to return to the communal table and helps us get there with good, honest food to be shared and savored.
