The Family Dinner

Laurie David

As if Laurie David didn't have enough on her plate with producing award-winning films like An Inconvenient Truth, she has now gathered lessons learned from her experiences as a mother and wife (and ex-wife) in her new book, The Family Dinner.

David's book is more than just a cookbook; it's a resource for bringing meaning back to the family table. Chef Kirstin Uhrenholdt provides the healthy recipes, and each dish has suggestions for including kids in the cooking process. But the suggestions don't stop with the food; David includes her tried-and-true tactics for making family dinner an engaging affair. She suggests dinner games, conversation starters, ideas for expressing gratitude, making your dinners eco-friendly, and even strategies for family dinners when parents are separated or divorced.

The Family Dinner is now available on Amazon for $18.98.
