Award-winning food writer Kate Young has made a name for herself in bringing together the joys of food and literature, and in The Little Library Parties she’s turned her attention to the topic of party food, with fabulous photographs of gatherings, and the dishes, adding to the book’s understated style and gift-appeal.

With fifty recipes in all, the book opens with inventive ideas for garden party food, ranging from the posh (poached salmon sandwiches), to back-to-basic-winners (sizzling sausages). Framed by an aspirational Bridget Jones quote (“People will flock to my dinner parties, enthusing ‘It’s really great going to Bridget’s for dinner, one gets Michelin star-style food in a bohemian setting’”), the dinner party recipes are a mix of ambitious show-stoppers and easier options that deliver big on taste and colour.

Also covering tea parties, wedding parties and house parties, this will have users upping their host game while indulging in the three-fold delights of food, friends and famed literature.
