Paris Picnic Club

More Than 100 Recipes to Savor and Share

by Shaheen Peerbhai, Jennie Levitt
Every Friday for a year, Shaheen Peerbhai and Jennie Levitt made a delicious picnic-style meal for their friends. This small tradition soon grew into a clandestine pop-up restaurant, serving much-anticipated lunches to eighty or so hungry guests once a week in different hotspots around Paris. In their charmingly illustrated book, Shaheen and Jennie offer a collection of curated flavorful recipes, taking inspiration from both classic French dishes and a selection of other diverse cuisines that are prominent throughout Paris. Pack your picnic basket with a recipe from the Small Plates chapter, such as the Frenchie Arepas with Caramelized Plum Jam. Be sure to impress the guests at your next casual dinner party with your tartine (open-faced sandwich) Smoked Ham, Brie and Onion Jam with Buttery Almonds and Garlic Zucchini recipe. Also, make sure to always include a plate of Rye, Chocolate, and Sea Salt Cookies to satisfy any companion with a sweet tooth! Along with its delicious recipes and stunning watercolor depictions, Paris Picnic Club gives you the tools to cook meals and grow your community through dishes that are supposed to be shared and recipes that are meant to be passed on. Paris Picnic Club helps you slow down, enjoy one another’s company, and nourish your community through the love of cooking for one another.
