A devoted wife, two bright children, a gorgeous home in a nice Connecticut suburb, an ample income as a successful lawyer: By all accounts, Cameron Stracher is living the American dream. Problem is, thanks to a crazy work schedule, he’s never home to enjoy it. So Cameron makes a bold decision: For the next year he’ll be home by six o’clock at least five days a week to sit down to a real family dinner–and he’ll even help cook that dinner himself. But as this daring adventure gets under way, it becomes clear that the road to culinary togetherness is no cakewalk. Only the author’s faith in another American dream–family closeness at the dinner table–keeps him moving, as he shops, chops, and cooks his way to fulfillment.
Fired with love and humor, wit and heart, and peppered with engaging social and cultural history, Dinner with Dad is a four-star, five-course celebration of family life. Millions of overextended parents will relate to and relish Cameron’s journey as he discovers what truly matters most.
