This book has been written for the modern cook who doesn't do pointless garnishes or napkin origami, and who likes nothing more than bringing people together around a table - or a picnic rug - preferring to enjoy guests' company rather than sweat away in the kitchen. Journalist and former magazine editor Sasha Wilkins of LibertyLondonGirl.com has been cooking for her family and friends around the world since she was old enough to grasp a wooden spoon. Inside Friends Food Family are her ideas for kitchen suppers for impromptu guests, Sunday lunches for family and friends, perfect picnics, and brunches for long weekends. Alongside Sasha's recipes are tips from her kitchen and insider secrets gathered on her global travels for LibertyLondonGirl. Think guides to flea markets from Bangkok to Brooklyn, suggested presents for godchildren, and interesting ingredients to have on standby for last-minute dinners.
