Food with Friends: The Art of Simple Gatherings by Leela Cyd, is a gloriously beautiful cookbook that celebrates the marriage of food and friends. The pictures in this book are stunning and swoon worthy. This book has unique recipes that will not only impress your friends, but make your mouth water while doing it. The foods have a rustic down-home, yet tea time inspired feel. Perfect for just about an occasion be it a baby shower or book club meeting this book is perfect.
Another component of this book is that the ingredients are for the most part staples, the recipes are not going to send you on a wild goose chase trying to find some mysterious thing you only need 1/8 of a teaspoon. I love that about this book, the recipes aren’t complicated, they have an effortless feel to them. The recipes are delicious, I cannot wait to see what Leela comes up with next, because I am completely smitten with these recipes and possibly going to need to go on a diet if I keep eating all of her delicious creations.
