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. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
“Karen Mordechai offers a gentle reminder to slow down and enjoy preparing simple meals to share with loved ones. You won't find trendy, complicated recipes in Sunday Suppers—her focus is on gathering around a communal table where good food leads to good conversation. From brunch to picnics to birthdays, Karen provides wholesome recipes that will nourish body and soul.”
—Nathan Williams, founding editor of Kinfolk 
 
“Sitting down to a meal with others is always an opportunity to learn, explore, ask questions, and expand one’s worldview. It might mean meeting someone unexpected, or deepening existing friendships. Sunday Suppers celebrates the act of connecting over a shared meal. The recipes are gorgeous, and the photography sublime. That said, the thing I love most is how Karen makes it all feel doable, and done beautifully, without a lot of fuss. Her menus are inspiring, the recipes accessible, seasonal, and crowd-pleasing—now it’s time to daydream about the guest list.”
—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day
 
Sunday Suppers is a beautiful meditation on the satisfaction of gathering—good food, friends and family, community—and sharing in the powerful experience of cooking and eating together.”
Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer, authors of Canal House Cooking

Sunday Suppers is an awesome cookbook! I feel like I say that with every cookbook I review but all the ones I get are really amazing especially this one. Sunday Suppers is the cookbook you would grab if you were having a big family get together on a beautiful summer day or a Sunday dinner after church. This cookbook is packed with delicious looking recipes and they aren’t so hard that an average home cook couldn’t master. The recipes are also healthy which is a big plus especially going into the New Year, these recipes would help you stick with that New Years resolution to lose weight. All the recipes are family friendly and kid friendly. There are a variety of recipes that any palette will love even those picky eaters! I absolutely love the cover. The sleek grey cover is just beyond sophisticated. It may not be a stand out bright color but it does the job of getting your attention, I think. The “shyness” of the cover makes it just blend right in with other cookbooks. It’s a perfect addition to any cook and chef’s cookbook collection. I would definitely say you need this one in your life! I can’t find not one bad word to say about it even if I wanted to. I give it 5+ stars! I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.
