Binding the Nation in Its Love of Meatloaf - The New York Times



"...Propelled by their own Proustian meatloaf memories and leveraging their connections to politicians, chefs and other journalists, Mr. Bruni and Ms. Steinhauer have attempted the seemingly impossible: a comprehensive and compelling collection of 49 recipes for meatloaf..."


Binding the Nation in Its Love of Meatloaf - The New York Times

And more on the book:

"Frank Bruni and Jennifer Steinhauer share a passion for meatloaf and have been exchanging recipes via phone, email, text and instant message for decades. A MEATLOAF IN EVERY OVEN is their homage to a distinct tradition, with 50 killer recipes, from the best classic takes to riffs by world-famous chefs like Bobby Flay and Mario Batali; from Italian polpettone to Middle Eastern kibbe to curried bobotie; from the authors' own favorites to those of prominent politicians. Bruni and Steinhauer address all the controversies (Ketchup, or no? Sauté the veggies?) surrounding a dish that has legions of enthusiastic disciples and help you to troubleshoot so you never have to suffer a dry loaf again. "
