Event description


Alison Roman is on a mission to make us better home cooks & entertainers and we’re not mad about it.

As a bestselling cookbook author and former Senior Food Editor at Bon Appetit Magazine, she’s all about how dining in can bring us just as much (if not, more) joy as eating out, create more accessibility around good food and most of all, build lasting friendships and community.

Her philosophy is grounded in building flavor and saving time. Her book guides us through her favorite condiments, pantry essentials, why your fridge should always be stocked with boiled potatoes and is full of useful recipes (that are actually fun to read!) for everything from morning-after-salad to that cookie (salted butter chocolate chunk shortbread!) everybody’s Instagramming.

Join us for a highly cookable evening where as expert or aspiring home cooks, we’ll ask important questions like “why is Alison always asking us to toast our nuts?” We’ll explore the ease of cooking and Alison’s career from Milk Bar pastry chef to acclaimed author with our moderator Melissa Jones, edible activist and founder of FoodTalksDC.

As Samin Nosrat said about Dining In, “this is not a cookbook, it’s a treasure map.”

Dining In books available for purchase in advance and at the event!
