“In a shock to no one, Dan’s debut cookbook is as full of living, laughing, and loving as any cookbook possibly could be. The recipes are homey and unpretentious just like he is—where sitting down with your people to a cozy, delicious meal is the end goal, and there’s joy in the process of getting there. We all yearn to be guests at GrossyPelosi’s table, and while I am lucky enough to have been one on a number of occasions, rest assured that diving into Let’s Eat is about as close as you can get.”

“My dreams of cooking like the adorable Italian grandma I never had have been REALIZED thanks to Dan's gorgeous and hilarious cookbook!”
New York Times bestselling author of The Cook You Want to Be
“Once you open Dan Pelosi’s Let’s Eat, you quickly realize it isn’t just a cookbook. You’re immediately transported to his delightfully colorful and wildly delicious world of food. This book is a love letter to so many of the dishes Dan grew up eating in his Italian-Portuguese family, and after making dishes like the Fork & Knife Carbonara and the Piri-Piri Roast Chicken, you realize Dan is the best friend (who can cook) you’re lucky to have in your life.”

“In Dan Pelosi’s exuberant debut cookbook, Let’s Eat, he tells us that his friends call him ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ because he feeds them so well when they visit. Let’s Eat is so congenial, nurturing, and personal that Dan is ‘mom’ to me from now on, too. Dan gleefully brings family and joy back to cookbooks, sharing his Grandma Katherine’s Rice Pudding, Bimpy’s Pizza, and the pot roast that his mom let him skip school to enjoy. His viral Vodka Sawce, which launched his dazzling food career, makes the cut (phew!), and he devotes a giant spread to the gloriously giant Italian sandwich. Dan’s book is like a culinary bear hug—surrounding you with food you want to share with a loud tableful of friends, debating which was better: the Vodka Sawce or the Fork & Knife Carbonara.”

“What a joyous (and stylish) cookbook, and so fun to read. Dan’s humor, generosity, and impeccable advice come through on every page—lucky us!”
Carla Lalli Music,
New York Times bestselling author of That Sounds So Good
“Dan, a.k.a. GrossyPelosi, knows exactly what love looks like: stretchy cheese pulls, crispy fried bits, crunchy croutons, and sawce-slicked lips. I can 100% relate to the way food, memory, and emotional wealth are wrapped up in his life, and this book delivers all the joy of standing in his colorful kitchen. As if that weren’t enough, it’s worth its weight in gold for his mom’s cleaning tips alone!"
New York Times bestselling author of Mi Cocina
“Few books capture the essence of a person better than this one. I feel Dan’s warmth, love, and generosity in every single word. I flip the pages and hear his encouraging voice and the roar of his laughter. His food and photos make my mouth water, and his personal stories make me feel like I’m a part of his family.”

“….a love letter to friendship, family, and eating and cooking with the people you love the most. Pelosi lets you in on family memories and his top cooking secrets — making you feel like he is your best friend, who also makes you killer pasta on the regular.”
“Dan “Grossy” Pelosi became a social media star during the pandemic, cooking the big-flavored Italian American dishes he grew up with for his fans. Now he’s sharing the classics, plus recent culinary creations, like his (brilliant!) Rainbow Cookie Loaf Cake.”
“Even a veteran in the kitchen will find plenty of helpful advice for cleaning, storing leftovers, and keeping herbs. Recipe introductions share personal stories and introduce readers to the many branches of Pelosi’s family tree, including his adorable 101-year-old grandpa Bimpy, and deliver the warmth and humor that fans of @grossypelosi will find familiar.”
“Let’s Eat absolutely rules, and whether you’re a TikTok cooking trend admirer, an Italian restaurant fanatic, or just a home cook looking for some bangin’ new pasta recipes, this is one $20 investment to make now and ensure a mega cozy winter (and life), replete with pizza, polenta, and, of course, vodka “sawce.”
