You can’t open your Instagram these days without running into Alison Roman or one of her dishes—and for good reason. With recipes that are unfussy yet unfailingly delicious, the New York Times food columnist, and author of the bestselling Dining In, has won legions of followers with mouthwatering creations like her chocolate-chunk cookies and #TheStew—a marriage of chickpeas, coconut and turmeric so outrageously good that it practically broke the internet.

In the hotly anticipated Nothing Fancy, named one of the fall's best cookbooks by Bon Appetit and Food & Wine, Roman celebrates the joys of eating with friends, offering an abundant collection of all-new recipes that are perfect for gatherings big and small, any day of the week. Presenting the book in Toronto for the very first time, she'll discuss her latest, effortlessly rewarding dishes, and provide a fresh and festive take on the pleasures of making wonderful food for your favourite people in life.

In conversation with food writer and restaurant critic Chris Nuttall-Smith
