Read. Don't follow recipes. Cook with fire. Pick wild herbs. Talk to ghosts. Fail at aioli. Turn the clocks back. Turn the clocks around. Dinner at the Long Table, the debut cookbook of Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow and Diner Journal editor Anna Dunn, invites you in very simple terms to participate. The book is a collection of dinners inspired by celebrations repeated over the years at the restaurants, as well as at home, with a focus on making food together for as many people as you can gather, as well as menus inspired by some of our favorite books in the cookbook compendium and beyond. Make a list, lose the list, remember what you've forgotten. Set the table. Listen to the music your friends make. Cook until you understand. Cook to keep the house warm.
