Instead, the author advocates cooking with quality ingredients sourced from local farmers and indigenous people. This book includes recipes that use basic ingredients, from crackers to meatloaf, a handful of ferments and preserves are also included. Since the author lives in Minnesota, most of what she describes as locally available carries over to the climate and growing conditions of the Upper Peninsula.

Together is Jamie Oliver’s post-pandemic cookbook that encourages us to cook for each other and make connections. Recipes are sorted by gathering type, rather than category.

Each entree includes a main course and sides, many also include dessert and a drink. The recipes are simple and include common ingredients. Perhaps the best part of this book is the photos. This book goes beyond photos of the food itself and is filled with photo collages of Jamie’s family and friends enjoying shared meals.
