#Aprella #DinnerForTwo 🍽Isabel & Edward's dinners sometimes included others but often it was just the two of them in this foodie memoir by a journalist who as a favor, starts having weekly dinners with a friend's father that turn into a lasting friendship. Chapters start with a menu of what Edward cooked. I made my take on his Shrimp & Corn Chowder when we read it for virtual foodie book club. I'm craving it now-so it's good there's 🍤for dinner.

ReadZenRites That looks delicious 😋 2y

Wish I could cook a #dinnerfortwo like Julia Childs. Hoping that if I get my hands on all of her books maybe I can get there with some practice 😬 wish me luck 🤣

Reviewsbylola Take some lessons from your MIL while you‘re living with her. And then invite me over for dinner. 👍🏻 2y
Leftcoastzen Her Boeuf Bourguignon is challenging to make , but one of the best things you will ever eat. please disregard if you don‘t eat beef.😁 2y
emilyhaldi Oh I eat beef @Leftcoastzen ... 4 nights a week probably 😆 I‘ve heard that dish is to die for and worth the work! Might be one of the first things I try 🤤 2y

I‘m sure a few of these “last suppers” were #DinnerForTwo ? 😆

This is a really fun (and maybe slightly ghoulish) read, complete with recipes. Did you know that Hitler was a vegetarian? 😳


Melissa_J You always have the most interesting sounding books! 2y
Maria514626 Ooh! I hope my library has this one! 2y
AmyG Hitler a vegetarian? How ironic. 😳 2y

Mdargusch I did not know that! This sounds very interesting! 2y
Moray_Reads I'd heard about Hitler's vegetarianism, but I also heard it was a myth... Who knows? 2y
Aimeesue Recipes? I must have it! 2y
britt_brooke Love the photo! This sounds so good. #stacked 2y
Reviewsbylola One of my favorite recipes is the French toast casserole Lacey Peterson planned to make the morning she died, so I believe in this. 2y
emilyhaldi Lol @Reviewsbylola so morbid. This book looks amazing, I agree with @Melissa_J !!!! 2y
LauraJ Yep, Hitler the speed-freak vegetarian. 2y

I Know How to Cook | Ginette Mathiot
post image

I'm always the one who gets stuck making our #dinnerfortwo - probably because my SO's culinary skills only extend as far as switching on the oven!
This is the holy grail of cook books as far as I'm concerned. It's a mammoth book and the only one you'll ever need on your bookshelf.
#aprella @Cinfhen @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch

LeahBergen I love the cover! 2y
Mdargusch Good to know about. I usually just get my recipes from Pinterest now but sounds like a good one. 2y
mabell How cool! Is it similar to Joy of Cooking? 2y

Reviewsbylola I love that cover!!!!! 2y
emilyhaldi Wow it‘s beautiful and has good recipes?! Only cookbook I‘ll ever need?! SOLD!!! 2y
Cinfhen I love finding new cookbooks and this one sounds 🙌🏻💕will definitely check it out 2y
PagesOfKate I've never read joy of cooking @mabell but I had a quick look at the blurb on here. Joy of Cooking seems quite different in terms of the inspiration behind the recipes but similar in scope. Seems a good read- I'll have to take a look. 2y

The Dinner | Herman Koch
post image

Not a #dinnerfortwo but for two couples in an absurdly fancy restaurant. Over a five-course-meal, some unsettling secrets are revealed concerning a hideous crime committed by their teenage sons and these parents show how far they are prepared to go to protect their children and themselves.

Reviewsbylola I was hoping someone would use this one! It seems fitting. 2y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I listened to the audio of this and loved the way the reader said “Serge Loman” with such disdain 😂 2y
Cathythoughts Really enjoyed this book ... great for bookclub discussion.! Great choice here 2y

Cinfhen My first thought today, I really hated all the players in this book but plenty to discuss 2y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Did not care for this book. None of the characters were likeable in the slightest. But I could see it being a good discussion book. 2y
Mdargusch This book came to mind for me too! 2y
emilyhaldi Yes, my first thought for today too!! Good one 👍🏻 2y
