In the mood for some gay French onion soup? How about gay linguine with autumn vegetables? These recipes and more will let you recreate popular dishes born in the kitchens of some of Brooklyn’s best-loved restaurants when they’re released as part of  “A Family Table: Recipes from Brooklyn’s Gay-owned and Gay-friendly Restaurants” on February 18.

The Brooklyn Pride organization will publish the tome with the goal of helping gay-owned eateries, reports The Brooklyn Paper, and there’ll even be a forward written by “gay-friendly Borough President [Marty] Markowitz.” Restaurants who contributed recipes include Teddy’s Bar and Grill in Williamsburg, Park Slope’s Bogota Bistro and Belleville.

No relation to Lou Rand Hogan’s “The Gay Cookbook” (1965), which the BP notes “is full of innuendo and references to the reader as ‘girlfriend.’”
