In Defense of Food: Recipes



The Pollan Family Meal

Gathering around the dinner table to share a meal with family and friends has always been the highlight of our day. We offer here some of our favorite recipes, the ones we turn to all the time. These dishes exemplify our food philosophy: they are rich in nutrients, full of fruits and vegetables, low in fat and processed ingredients, and best of all, they are delicious and easy to make.

Our light, crisp signature salad appears at all our family gatherings, the hunter’s chicken stew is the ultimate comfort food, the root vegetable “fries” appeal to both grownups and kids, and no Pollan holiday dinner is complete without an apple crumble for dessert.
