Faith Durand is the managing editor of The Kitchn, the cooking section of, an acclaimed lifestyle website and online community. Not Your Mother’s Casseroles is her first book. She is an avid home cook, gardener, and lover of dinner parties. Durand lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her husband.

Durand grew up in a busy household of eight children and the casserole, disguised under various aliases, was central to her mother’s culinary repertoire. After all, there was no easier way to feed so many mouths! Today, Durand, a well-regarded cook herself, has set out to redefine the casserole. With modern tools and techniques, she has built fresh ingredients and favorite flavors into the classic convenience of the baked one-dish meal.
