Eating Together, Being Together: Recipes, Activities, and Advice from a Chef Dad and Psychologist Mom

Dr. Caroline Clauss-Ehlers and Julian Clauss-Ehlers

Grow closer as a family through mealtime bonding. Explore recipes plus essays, tips, and activities for the whole family that show how cooking together and sharing family meals can help build healthy relationships with food and with each other.

With unique insights from a New York Times–starred celebrity chef dad and an award-winning psychologist mom, Eating Together, Being Together is much more than a cookbook. It teaches parents and children from toddlerhood through the teen years how to engage around cooking and mealtime.

Whether it’s kids sharing their feelings while they mix batter, or adults telling stories of their childhood while enjoying a favorite recipe, a special kind of bonding happens around food. Eating Together, Being Together gives you the recipes and activities for that bonding experience and helps set the table for connection.


Julian Clauss-Ehlers is a classically trained, New York Times starred chef/restaurateur who has cooked in five Michelin-starred restaurants. Currently he is executive chef at Butcher and Banker and Trattoria Bianca at the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan.

Caroline S. Clauss-Ehlers, PhD, ABPP is an internationally known, award-winning psychologist whose research, teaching, and writing have focused on supporting children, adolescents, and their families. Dr. Clauss-Ehlers is a licensed psychologist in New York and PA and a professor at Long Island University, Brooklyn.
