From the creator of Sunday Suppers, the wildly popular Brooklyn-based cooking club, comes a gorgeous menu-based cookbook celebrating the magic of communal meals with family and friends.

Karen Mordechai was one of the first to redefine “entertaining” as “gathering”—in order words, not as a production of complicated dishes and decor, but as the intimate act of eating together at home. Sunday Suppers features Karen’s achingly beautiful photography and 100 recipes centered around get-togethers (a beach lunch, an urban picnic, Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed) with easy preparations (you can actually make the whole menu!) and simple, elegant styling.

  • “Karen Mordechai offers a gentle reminder to slow down and enjoy preparing simple meals to share with loved ones. You won't find trendy, complicated recipes in Sunday Suppers—her focus is on gathering around a communal table where good food leads to good conversation. From brunch to picnics to birthdays, Karen provides wholesome recipes that will nourish body and soul.”
    —Nathan Williams, founding editor of Kinfolk

    “Sitting down to a meal with others is always an opportunity to learn, explore, ask questions, and expand one’s worldview. It might mean meeting someone unexpected, or deepening existing friendships. Sunday Suppers celebrates the act of connecting over a shared meal. The recipes are gorgeous, and the photography sublime. That said, the thing I love most is how Karen makes it all feel doable, and done beautifully, without a lot of fuss. Her menus are inspiring, the recipes accessible, seasonal, and crowd-pleasing—now it’s time to daydream about the guest list.”
    —Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day

    “Sunday Suppers is a beautiful meditation on the satisfaction of gathering—good food, friends and family, community—and sharing in the powerful experience of cooking and eating together.”
    —Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer, authors of Canal House Cooking

    “Mordechai offers a chic and stylish cookbook of 100 recipes with a focus on get-togethers and intimate gatherings. Mordechai’s style is casual, simple yet sophisticated... Complete soup-to-nuts, predesigned menus inspire a breakfast-in-bed menu of rich cream biscuits, perfect scrambled eggs, and fresh greens or a hearty winter brunch of homemade bagels, tea and ginger-cured sea bass, warm citrus salad, and fig tart with honey... Mordechai’s light-filled photographs mirror her calm, peaceful mood as well as her belief in a slow-paced approach to sharing food with friends and family through recipes that are informal, fun, and consistently elegant.”
