about


The old adage, 'It's not what's on the table, it's who's at the table,' means more to home cooks as the stuffy, fussy, pretentious dinner party of the past disappears, making way for a new entertaining ideal. People naturally gather together over food; it's a huge part of any celebration, and a means of coming together for more casual daily social interactions. Dinner parties are making a comeback - with more focus on gathering over easy, casual food, there's less pressure for fancy recipes, immaculate table settings and perfect presentation. Home cooks crave comfortable ways to socialize with friends and family, whether it be a special occasion or a means of reconnecting on a regular weeknight.

Gatherings puts the focus on real situations that bring people together, whether the occasion is a birthday or holiday, or just an excuse to reconnect and strengthen relationships. The book will be broken down into casual scenarios, with recipes, drinks or cocktails, and easy serving, decor and presentation suggestions for each. It will appeal to those less inclined to spend money eating out, who are still interested in socializing or hosting more casual home parties. It will benefit those who can't cook, have a small space, don't know how to mix drinks or easily decorate, or are intimidated by all that organizing a party entails, from estimating quantities to storing and serving. Gatherings makes social occasions easy and approachable, and strengthens relationships while building confidence in the kitchen.
