Editorial Reviews

Review

"In real life, Sara Kate is sweet and smart, funny, warm, gracious and boundlessly enthusiastic. She's the kind of person you always want to be around and she makes the kind of food you always want to eat: simple, honest, good looking and very, very good tasting. Here's great news: Sara Kate's style and culinary charm shine on every page of Good Food to Share." --Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table

From the Author

"The ultimate goal of any dinner party I host is to connect people to their food and to share a meal together. That's it. I want to fill their bellies, of course, but mostly I want them to leave with a strong sense of connection to what they have eaten."
- Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan

I thought this book would have more appetizer recipes. For entertaining?...not quite sure how this book differs from other cookbooks. The recipes are good, and most ingredients are easy to find in a local market. The pictures are beautiful. Meh.

Sara Kate's recipe's are always wonderfully unique without being bizarrely esoteric. I appreciate the ease with which she walks the reader step by step through each creation. This book would make a great gift from the newly- wed couple learning to cook to the retiree looking to hone his/her culinary skills!

I love this book. It's beautiful enough to make browsing a pleasure, and I've already given it as a gift. The recipes are creative, but not fussy--it's perfect for a dinner party or just a better-than-usual family meal. The author emphasizes local, sustainable cooking in a friendly, non-militant way, and it's helping me get out of my normal routine of cooking the same things every few nights. I know this is one of those books that's going to suffer a lot of spills and stains on its (completely gorgeous) pages, because I'm going to keep reaching for it every time I need some inspiration in the kitchen.

I know, I know, who needs another cookbook? BUT, this book has some wonderful, novel ideas. I've already sent it to my mother-in-law and another friend who are excellent hostesses. Ms Gillingham-Ryan's elegant yet simple style will help make your next gathering a fun time for you and your guests. I appreciate that the food is non-fussy and easy to make, yet still thoughtful and contains lots of fresh ingredients. The drink section is especially fun, I've already had the yummy fizzy drinks. Oh, and the pictures - I wish I could eat some of them off the page!
