"Like me, Danielle Kartes realizes that food is the great connector―a conduit to bring people together around the table and create new memories."―Rachael Ray
This life we've been given is truly meant to share. Rustic Joyful Food: Meant to Share is a tender look at the way food shapes our hearts, souls, and communities. The idea that it's not just a novelty but a necessity to give food to people and to cook for those we love is the backbone of this book, which celebrates connection and gives you all the tools you need to create amazing moments, one dish at a time, in a way that feels genuine, thoughtful, and effortless. We only have one chance to live life to the very fullest. The food in these pages will ignite connection, not perfection, and feed people in our lives. In the spirit of open-heartedness, I invite you to share your life, your food, and your story with the people in your life.
