Description

A Table for Friends celebrates the joy of eating with friends and family, with over 100 simple and wonderfully inviting recipes that allow you to relax with your loved ones whilst the cooking takes care of itself.

Drawing on years of cooking for more people than it ever seemed possible to squeeze into her kitchen, Sunday Times columnist and cookery author Skye McAlpine shares the secrets to her stylish and relaxed way of hosting, setting you up for success whether you're cooking for two or twenty.

A Table for Friends has recipes for every occasion, from last-minute weeknight dinners to large celebratory gatherings. Skye's recipes fall into four chapters, Stars, Sides, Sweets and Extras, which allow you to intuitively plan a simple and impressive menu, and, because juggling oven space is one of the biggest challenges when cooking for a crowd, each chapter is ingeniously organised into Throw Together, On The Hob and In The Oven so your menu works best for your mood, your kitchen and your time. Alongside these beautiful, deliciously do-able recipes comes Skye's practical, fuss-free guidance for hosting a stress-free gathering, from what to cook in advance to how to lay the table beautifully, allowing you to step out of the kitchen and relax with your guests.

About Skye McAlpine

London, United Kingdom
Skye McAlpine is a cookery writer who believes that food tastes best when shared with others. Born in London, she moved to Venice with her parents when she was six years old. The plan was to stay for a year, but Venice has a way of capturing people’s hearts - and some thirty years on, she has never really left, now dividing her time between London and Venice where she writes, photographs and teaches cookery workshops.

Skye is the author of two cookbooks: A Table in Venice, which celebrates the Venetian home-cooking of her childhood, and A Table for Friends, which is all about how to cook for friends and really enjoy it (whether you’re cooking for two or twenty). She writes a regular recipe column for The Sunday Times and contributes to a number of publications around the world, including Vogue, the Daily Telegraph and Vanity Fair. In 2020 She was named one of the 50 most influential women in food by the respected Italian daily newspaper, Corriere della Sera. A love of entertaining, and sharing her home and food, are at the heart of everything she does.
