When you eat together, friends become family.
Pasta Friday is a weekly gathering of pasta-lovers, wine drinkers, and all their wild children. It began in Allison Arevalo’s Oakland kitchen in 2017, and it’s now a tradition shared by people all over the world. It’s also a gorgeous cookbook!
Unwind. Connect. Make memories. Our grandparents understood the importance of eating together. Of sitting down, face-to-face, and sharing a meal with your community. But it's harder now. Finding the time to cook and entertain every single week seems impossible.
But it’s not. I would host around 30 adults and 20 children in my Oakland kitchen, and now I’m continuing the tradition in our new home in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I cook a giant pot of pasta, a big salad, and the guests bring wine. Yes, I have chips in my walls and popsicle stains on my rugs, but it is so worth it, because I also have so many friends who have become my family.
I can show you how to start your own Pasta Friday. How to shop, prep and prepare to host a weekly gathering that will change your life.
