Chris Kohatsu loves to cook, especially for friends, and she has a knack for preparing delicious, easy dishes on a moment’s notice, any day of the week. In her first cookbook, Food with My Friends, the effervescent HSN cooking expert, food writer and travel journalist shares her repertoire of tried and true recipes for turning any occasion into a chic celebration.
Food with My Friends is a collection of simple yet savory recipes culled from Chris’s years of entertaining her nearest and dearest over formal dinners, casual lunches and late-night refrigerator raids. From romantic tête-à-têtes and girlfriend get-togethers to spirited champagne brunches and indoor tailgate parties, Chris has the perfect, easy-to-follow recipe for both a mouth-watering meal and a memorable entertainment experience.
Chapter titles hint at the tantalizing treats within: "Girlfriends, Brunches & Lunches" serves up light yet substantial fare, “I Love You Meals” sets the mood for an intimate evening, “Turning Japanese” features a playful nod to Chris’s cultural heritage, “Scrumptious Pasta & Pizza” suggests creative approaches for carb lovers and “Sunday Suppers” offers an homage to the joys of slow-cooking.
Each recipe is accompanied by beautiful, colorful photographs by artist Stephanie Cameron. An illustrated index helps readers identify recipes suitable for any meal, with choices such as Balsamic Marinated Steak with Raspberry Vinaigrette, Creamed Spinach Macaroni & Cheese and Easy Quiche 1-2-3. Whether you’re setting the table for two or twenty, Food with My Friends will help you celebrate in style and give you and your guests every reason to smile.
