NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY DELISH AND LIBRARY JOURNAL
Eden Grinshpan’s accessible cooking is full of bright tastes and textures that reflect her Israeli heritage and laid-back but thoughtful style. In Eating Out Loud, Eden introduces readers to a whirlwind of exciting flavors, mixing and matching simple, traditional ingredients in new ways: roasted whole heads of broccoli topped with herbaceous yogurt and crunchy, spice-infused dukkah; a toasted pita salad full of juicy summer peaches, tomatoes, and a bevy of fresh herbs; and babka that becomes pull-apart morning buns, layered with chocolate and tahini and sticky with a salted sugar glaze, to name a few.
For anyone who loves a big, boisterous spirit both on the plate and around the table, Eating Out Loud is the perfect guide to the kind of meal—full of family and friends eating with their hands, double-dipping, and letting loose—that you never want to end.

She conceptualized, produced, and hosted Eden Eats, her first culinary travel show for the Cooking Channel.

“Eating Out Loud oozes Eden’s culinary perspective and overall hotness. From the Tahini Caesar to Lemony Mejadra with Extra, Extra-Fried Shallots, she brings new life to everyday dinner staples, making them unique to her experience and fresh to our senses.”—Antoni Porowski, bestselling author of Antoni in the Kitchen
“Cooking a recipe from Eating Out Loud is like flooding your kitchen with sunlight! The energy, warmth, and deliciousness this cookbook exudes is infectious and instantly puts me in a good mood. Eden’s food is seductive, unfussy, superfresh, and always flavor forward. Just like her! I’d happily bask in its glow from morning ’til night . . . and sop up every drop!”—Gail Simmons, food expert, TV host, and author of Bringing It Home
“This is the cookbook you won’t be able to put down, can cook out of every day, and comes from the heart and soul of the stunningly talented Eden Grinshpan. Deciphering the flavors and techniques of the Levant? Sure. Delicious recipes? Absolutely. And this book does more than that, taking inspiration from Eden’s childhood, where the kitchen was a safe place to express herself and passing that gift on to the readers and home cooks.”—Andrew Zimmern, traveler, chef, writer, and teacher
“I have always said that my next culinary adventure would be to dive into the foods of the Middle East. Learning a new cuisine can be intimidating, but what I love about this book is that Eden gives you the basics of typical ingredients, sauces, and flavor combinations to get you started and then turns them on their head to provide her own modern and fresh approach that leaves you wanting to explore every dish in the book.”—Missy Robbins, chef and owner of Lilia Ristorante and Misi; cofounder of Grovehouse
