When I just hard look at the online to find out some information about you and I found your Alter egos that the body builder. And I thought that's really guilty and then of course I realize. It was issue but it. And they're in mind. And it just not right. And folks if you do a Google search for Alley Rosen don't go with the body go. You can look at walker got a bug bit. Alex got. Great FaceBook presence could put residence. I'm gonna talk about the book before we do Alec counseled about you your journey and food of what led duke to write the school. Think you while I'm going from pop up like Europe with a lot of other good thing. That my grandmother married my mom and me from doing like kind of cute. Who influences that I think with my whole life and I started my career actually is acting and I just couldn't let go of that for love the food out. I started her in my own childhood about them in the American. You know a lot of like is kept from the thing I'd do it in her view. Check the reference tour than cookbook authors but you know violent Cuba in Philly but cooking though. This is my chance to answer my own recipes then threw everything I have learned from getting talked to. Shackled line and then also you know from growing up in the thousands. Of new England and Padma in all over the country so it really. Just don't want lettered entertaining trying to make it easy as possible for people without that being kind of that like. That story is that I think we'll have an hour had you to work a lot you know it. It didn't have to feel like a casserole dish full as Ian eagle could be. Something great to potluck about the idea behind the book like cooking have been making them look really impressive but are actually quite. To me. Well you know I have found that. It's so fun to be a part of a potluck whether your date the host or whether you're. Bringing something to one because it's an opportunity to see what other people or make him pulled fairly rescues whatever and learned some really cool stuff. What are some tips that you offer in the book about. Putting on your own. Why firstly the earth is to get yourself a little bit organize you know everybody want it. Bergen their friends that they like the fan at all it's free what do you want that actually. That I. Happening on unmanned and then everybody kind of bring the same thing they don't know what it brings. So but we started to think hey you know you and bring. You my bringing up that you Yuma and bringing it is there and that way. You don't have the right Brett. This thing I think is really important to keep in mind is just to make sure. That brings something known but that's. It was it you know three people doesn't that figure out how to work if people need rich if they need. Countered they cut something and put it this together. I'm so did he mean the biggest issue that people had a they're trying to over comity and they don't get enough information. And then to add a little -- that the that you start out by the open than you can from people who make everything right a lot more. Well even if if you include in the required RSVP. Pay what what what what's what are your favorite things what do you bring it number gonna counsel role with the chicken and broccoli okay did you write that with the experts have called. That's as I was gonna react how fortunate enough about the I think you know deacon collective important. Would you would you put the book together first off the book is pretty intensive it's got a lot of rest beat a lot of fun information. But it had to be hard because when I can think of probably. Fifteen things that we take to pop what type deals and divided in the categories it and it had to be heart paring it down. Yeah I mean this film and many things that you think taken everything interference and everything he has been classic you know but for being with -- that have. You know what do that this is that hold up it would that this is that if Biden. To happen it out happy for them you know they don't necessarily have a four night you know what everything. But look at practice. You know as though it was really narrowing it down and I can't sit on my family you know both my siblings with a New York for needy. And their significant other than every parent and I we have dinner and they keeping the thumbs up for the fans out there are a lasting that was good it. It's not free. That just you know it didn't make in the book so it was really kind of labor of family love those. Carrying out in the future we had the great recipes connect with the people have a lot option but there's nothing in the I think you wouldn't want. I'd love it I'm. You know I think one of the best parties that have ever hosted and have them a couple of times as everybody likes small plates and opportunity it's not a Philip a plate and sit down and eat dinner it's grades and there's a lot of really cool appetizer recipes in the book. How about some tips and some of the rescue that you like to do if it's going to be a bunch of small plates for big group. Yeah I think it is if you're gonna have a lot of softly in the process grieving commitment that don't even try to keep them things have to try you know that's I think. We think that people make particularly at Portland after yet. Is that the decree thing you know if you're having multiple courses that if it's great if you like going back or they. And offered by the time insisting with cheese and the other thing. In the thick of hot yet it it's it's kind of sad note you wanted to uphold it that the recipe for safety that pepper hot streak.
