In the spirit of the classic community cookbooks assembled by churches, PTAs, families, and charities, the Tables of Contents Community Cookbook is a collection of dishes and reflections on food from the home kitchens of 36 contemporary poets, essayists and fiction writers.
Featured contributors include: Alexander Chee, Carmen Maria Machado, Idra Novey, Tommy Pico, Emma Straub, Angela Flournoy, Nick Flynn, Nafissa Thompson-Spires, Pitchaya Sudbanthad, Leanne Shapton, Paul Lisicky, and other favorite alums of the TOC Reading Series.
This collection of recipes from writers' home kitchens is printed in full color with illustrations and design by Moriah Grace Rodriguez. Evan Hanczor (founder of Tables of Contents and longtime chef of Egg in Brooklyn, NY) contributes an introduction and curated recipes from the TOC archives, including Colombian Arepas de Queso from Paola Mendoza’s SANCTUARY and Broke n Rice from Danez Smith’s HOMIE.
All profits from the TOC Community Cookbook will go to support the ongoing food relief work of FIG(Food Issues Group) in NYC.
