Delicious recipes from two chefs who cooked up a community as well as a meal.
Every Friday for a year in a small town tucked into the hillsides south of Paris, Shaheen Peerbhai and Jennie Levitt made a delicious picnic-style meal for their friends, and it grew into a clandestine pop-up restaurant, serving much-anticipated lunches to eighty hungry guests.
Soon they moved their picnic club to parks and hidden spots across Paris. In this charmingly illustrated book, Shaheen and Jennie offer a collection of their flavorful recipes, taking inspiration from the diverse cuisines of Paris. You’ll delight in eclectic small plates and sharing platters, abundant tartines, creative drinks, indulgent desserts, and more—to savor and share in your favorite picnic spot or at your dinner table.
" If only we all had friendships like Shaheen and Jennie's-ones focused on gathering people and cooking for them. In Paris Picnic Club, they've created a joyful reminder that great cooking is nothing without the sense of discovery and pleasure that you share with others. You'll find yourself hopscotching in a playground of appealing recipes-make sure you don't miss gems like the Cold-Oven Chicken, which is now a staple in my dinner repertoire." -AMANDA HESSER, cofounder and CEO of Food52; " Brimming over with seasonal produce, the recipes of Shaheen Peerbhai and Jennie Levitt blend classic technique with the diverse flavors of twenty-first-century Paris.
