Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s a book all about cooking for (and with) your sweetie. For newlyweds and happy couples of all kinds, The Newlywed Cookbook by Food Network Kitchens veteran Sarah Copeland is a delicious guide to nurturing your love with great meals, day after day. I caught up with Sarah by phone to ask her a few questions about her new cookbook.
How did you get the idea for this cookbook?
I always wanted to write a cookbook; I didn’t have an exact idea, I just knew I wanted to make it a garden-to-table or farm-to-table lifestyle easier for people instead of an ambitious change-your-whole-life thing. I met my editor at a workshop, and I must have talked a lot about my husband – I was just married and totally in love. He called me a few months later and said, “We have an idea for a book, and I think you might be our author.” So it’s a book all about my real life. When I actually sat down to write it, it literally poured out onto the page.
