When it comes down to creating happy memories, what kind of entertainer are you? Do you like to make others feel special and loved? If you do, Food with Friends is the cookbook for you. Leela Cyd the author is a food, lifestyle and travel photographer and she is based in Northern California. Many of her food and spices are from her travels around the world which she blogs about at LeelaCyd.com.
The Food with Friends cookbook is focused on entertaining, the dishes are colorful and fun. Most have some sort of whimsical artsy twist that feels sincere and natural. There are six chapters: Breakfast and Brunch, Teatime, Happy Hour, Potlucks and Picnics, Desserts, and Tiny Takeaways. Every recipe comes with a beautiful photo and a personal introduction or story, which I found to be very charming. In her Onion Jam recipe she writes that it is so good she would happily marry a jar of it. Now that did it for me, later that day I made my own jar and it was delicious!! (see picture below).
