About

Compiled by Jon Gilman and Christopher Idone, in celebration of more than 30 years of service, comes an illustrated cookbook (God’s Love We Deliver Cookbook: Nourishing Stories and Recipes from Notable Friends) like no other, packed with family recipes and personal anecdotes from 75 supporters of this NYC non-profit fixture. Born of the idea that the sharing or preparing of a meal is among the greatest acts of love, this intimate and exquisitely photographed compilation reaffirms and reminds us that many of our most precious and cherished moments occur around the dinner table and in the kitchen. From Alan Cumming’s Stovies and Jennifer Hudson’s feta-stuffed chicken burgers to Ina Garten’s roast turkey and Michael Kors’ pineapple upside-down cake, each superb and sometimes hilarious (Roz Chast, for example) contribution offers a glimpse into the home of the recipe-giver and is certain to inspire the making of new memories.

            Discover breakfasts that woo, such as Charles Masson’s scrambled eggs with shaved truffles and Kyle McLachlan’s yeasted waffles; desserts that heal and pacify, like Simon Doonan & Jonathan Adler’s Peach-Blueberry Pie, Roseanne Cash’s Coconut Cake and Blaine Trump’s Carrot Cake, and dinners that delight the senses, including Charlie Palmer’s Duck Breasts with Wild Mushrooms & Asparagus, Danny Myers Spareribs and Ricky Lauren’s Goulash. From favorite childhood meals that comfort and sooth to dishes that lift us to new heights of gustatory pleasure or commemorate tender and joyful milestones, every delicious recipe included is this collection has a meaningful story to tell.
