"Every Day Is Saturday should be our new collective cooking manifesto, and Sarah gives us the tools and tips to make it happen. The recipes are modern and nourishing, with room for indulgence, and most important, to connect with the ones you love." —Aran Goyoaga, author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats and creator of Cannelle et Vanille

"It's a worthy primer on modern, healthy family cooking."— Julia Moskin, New York Times (Named one of the 12 Best Cookbooks of Spring 2019)

"In this timely, beautiful book, Sarah reminds us that we can bottle the magic of a Saturday night or Sunday supper with friends and family at a long table—where the flavors are bigger, wine flows a little more, and laughter grows little louder—to nourish the ones we love any night of the week. All it takes is intention, a bit more planning, and her smart recipes as a roadmap to create big flavors with minor effort."—Hunter Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of Food & Wine

Whether you're looking for easy recipes, seek inspiration from beautiful photographs, or like digging into notes on technique, this book has you covered. With Sarah's food, every day can be Saturday! —Camille Becerra, chef

"I was sold on Every Day Is Saturday as soon as I read the names of the chapters. From Grazing Platters to Cooking for Friends to Projects, Sarah describes my life as far as how I eat, who I eat with, and when I decide to hunker down in the kitchen for a while. The recipes are delicious and doable, and they take into account that we're busy. Our lives just needed to shift a little . . . to Saturday (even on a Wednesday!)."—Carla Hall, author of Carla Hall's Soul Food and Carla's Comfort Foods

"I wanted to eat everything in this book and lick the pages clean. Sarah has created a book that is not only beautiful to look at, but also makes me want to start cooking and baking immediately."—Chris Morocco, Senior Editor, Bon Appétit

"Everything Sarah cooks looks like something she's made expressly for your happiness. That she has two young children and a very busy life has always made me wonder, How does she do it? The answers are on each page of this book, which is as practical as it is beautiful. Sarah's get-ahead suggestions, her ideas for gathering-and pampering-people around the table, are down to earth. With Sarah at your side, every day will be Saturday in your home, too."—Dorie Greenspan, award-winning author of Dorie's Cookies and Everyday Dorie
