Let’s cook our way through this.

American Love is a live cooking show broadcasting from Harlem, NYC and a shared virtual dinner across the nation celebrating our swing states in ten weeks. It features “Chef of the Soul” Samir Selmanović with home chefs Mark Sandlin and Alli Malifronte

Staying at home and preparing food for yourself, your family, or your neighbors has never been more natural. Let’s gather our Common Good cooking community and dish out some faith, hope, and love for each other.

Every week, let’s connect virtually, cook, eat, and take action together. Chef Samir Selmanović will share custom-made recipes for American Love focused on all-American as well as local swing-state recipes that are heartening, wholesome, and fun to make. Come in and make yourself comfortable.
