Around Our Table


Around Our Table



120 seasonal, flexible vegetable-forward recipes for family and friends that answer the question “what do I make for dinner when I feel overwhelmed?’ from the Sara Forte, of the Sprouted Kitchen blog and Cooking Club.

Around Our Table is Sara Forte’s third and most personal cookbook. It comes from years of work on the Sprouted Kitchen blog and Cooking Club, which has provided insights into how people actually want to cook and what obstacles they face.

In Around Our Table, Sara shares her honest and unfussy insights from heavy lifting sauces that can work for multiple meals, to truly flexible meals (accommodating picky kids, dietary restrictions, and time limitation), tips on which dinners will travel well, feed a group, and freeze well. With ideas for all of life’s big moments; meals for birthdays, bridal showers, and meals to deliver to families with new babies, or sick relatives. The book contains sample menus for easy entertaining, and make-ahead meals in an approachable, forgiving way that relies on a mix of homemade and packaged ingredients. 

Through 120 recipes, she shares her perspective on how she feeds her family and friends with dishes like Mexican Caesar Brussels with Cornbread Crispies, Chicken Parmesan Meatballs, and a Gingersnap Pumpkin Tart. These are endlessly flexible recipes, and headnotes and sidebars will include tips to prep ahead and swaps for making dishes gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan or vegetarian. 

Sara’s writing is like talking to a friend who has a little more kitchen experience than you and understands the obstacles you’re up against.
