One of my favorite things is hosting friends at my home. The joy of cooking for others and of preparing a space for them to relax has a magic all its own.
So imagine an entire cookbook dedicated to cooking with friends. That’s exactly what Food with Friends by Leela Cyd is. Focusing on tiny tidbits of food, this cookbook contains recipes for food gatherings like tea time, breakfast and brunch, desserts, potlucks, and picnics. An entire section devoted to creating the atmosphere for a food get-together (“Secret Ingredients”) made me love this book’s effort to cultivate friendship.
As a child, I would have loved to have a book like this–simple, friend-oriented, and beautifully photographed. I recommend this book to both young and old friends.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
