Photographer, award-winning blogger, and creator of the Brooklyn Sunday Suppers community, Mordechai offers a chic and stylish cookbook of 100 recipes with a focus on get-togethers and intimate gatherings. Mordechai’s style is casual, simple yet sophisticated. Chapters honor milestones and times of day (Morning, noon, afternoon, holiday, and evening) with recipes for gatherings typical of those times. Complete soup-to-nuts, pre-designed menus inspire a breakfast-in-bed menu of rich cream biscuits, perfect scrambled eggs, and fresh greens or a hearty winter brunch of homemade bagels, tea and ginger–cured sea bass, warm citrus salad, and fig tart with honey. For noon, a camping or day trip menu includes lemon hummus and naan with rosemary and thyme, and afternoon recipes for a city picnic feature chicken pie, fennel, a feta frittata, and a refreshing tomato and cantaloupe salad. Mordechai features menus for a children’s birthday party, a whiskey rib feast, and nostalgic Thanksgiving holiday dinner, as well as recipes for when friends gather upstate or around a beach fire. Mordechai’s light-filled photographs mirror her calm, peaceful mood as well as her belief in a slow-paced approach to sharing food with friends and family through recipes that are informal, fun, and consistently elegant.
