Have you ever been invited to a summer potluck and found yourself with a bad case of the cook’s block and no idea what to bring?
Former Food & Wine editor Kristin Donnelly has just released a cookbook for that very situation: in Modern Potluck: Beautiful Food To Share, she highlights perfectly shareable meals sure to impress at your next gathering.
I love the book’s emphasis on vegetables and the wide range of flavors, from new twists on deviled eggs, to gracefully constructed salads, to no-noodle lasagna.
Naturally, the photos are gorgeous (the book promises “beautiful food” in its subtitle and it certainly delivers) and there is a handy guide on what makes a perfect potluck, and what dishes may flop.
It wouldn’t do to write a potluck book without having other people contribute, and I’m thrilled to say Kristen features one of my recipes in the book as well.
Even better, Kristin’s (and my) publisher Clarkson Potter is offering to send a free copy of the book to 3 lucky C&Z readers!
