Rustic Joyful Food: My Heart’s Table is the long-awaited New American cookbook from Danielle Kartes – former restaurateur, home cook, mom, and food stylist. Simple, flavorful, tested recipes and new twists on classic dishes. Her story of triumph over loss, culinary simplicity and love for people shine brightly in her debut cookbook. This book houses over 140 stunning everyday recipes, heartwarming stories and over 100 vibrant images to support the recipes.
“It’s my hope that you will find something to love within these pages―that one of my recipes will become your own memorized specialty that you’ll add or take away an ingredient or two to create your own perfect meal. And I hope that meal―your meal―will be enjoyed for years to come by people you love. I want you to feel amazing each time you make it.
Truth be told, that’s the beautiful thing about food. I believe that when heart, soul, and creativity are interjected into a recipe, no two people will ever make it the same. Every meal is uniquely yours.” ―Danielle Kartes
