Yesterday’s post from Jessica on entertaining made me so so hungry. So much so that I couldn’t help share a few of my favorite cookbooks for those soon-to-be newlyweds out there hoping to create a socially conscious kitchen. Each of these are filled with seasonal, cultural and sustainable foods and tips on how to design a beautiful menu that’s good for all involved.
