Friends at My Table is a good example of a kind of British cookbook that’s popular right now – full of visions of rustic entertaining based on global flavors. There are charming, old-fashioned sidebars – like how to play beach cricket, and an assortment of parlor games.
The food itself ranges from the simple to the overwhelming (in the mood for venison made in a fire pit?). You could argue that that shows versatility, although in plain fact it may just mean this turns out to be one of those cookbooks where you use maybe 3 of the recipes regularly, and never open it otherwise.
