This week we’re doing a special book review pro tip, talking about the fantastic Pasta Friday book by Allison Arevalo. Allison has a great story she told in the book about how her Pasta Friday tradition started: she had just sold her shares in a business – a successful restaurant in Oakland called Homeroom, her son needed a risky surgery and her sister was battling stage 4 cancer. The only time she felt better and stopped worrying was when she was cooking for friends, so she decided to host pasta Friday at her house every week. She started an email list and was off. After a year of cooking, she decided to share her pasta friday recipes with all of us in this book. It’s an ode to cooking as community building and a celebration of living life to its fullest with family and friends. And pasta, lots and lots of pasta.
