More about Nothing Fancy

Feeding friends—and feeding yourself—is totally relaxed with Alison Roman, author of Dining In and New York Times columnist.

It’s not entertaining, it’s having people over. An unexpected weeknight meal with a neighbor or a weekend dinner party with fifteen of your closest friends—either way and everywhere in between, it’s unfussy food paired with unstuffy vibes. This abundant collection of all-new recipes—heavy on the easy-to-execute vegetables and versatile grains, paying lots of close attention to crunchy, salty snacks, and with love for all the meats—is for gatherings big and small, from the weeknight to the weekend. Alison Roman will give you the food your people want (think DIY martini bar, platters of tomatoes, pots of coconut-braised chicken and chickpeas, pans of lemony turmeric tea cake) plus the tips, sass, and confidence to pull it all off. With Nothing Fancy, any night of the week is worth celebrating.

Alison Roman is a columnist for the New York Times Food section and Bon Appétit. She is the author of the bestselling Dining In, named a best cookbook of the year by NPR, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Epicurious, among others. A native of Los Angeles, Alison lives in Brooklyn.
