SHARE is the totally new dining experience - 70 simple recipes for wonderful food designed to be presented directly on a surface for maximum visual appeal and enjoyed by a group of people.
Chef Theo Michaels has been creating and presenting his delicious food in this way to create excitement and start the conversation at large catered events and now brings his unique vision to home entertaining. Downsized to feed 6-8 people and easily achievable by the home cook, this inspired collection of themed sharing menus is perfect for communal, sociable eating.
The book opens with a section featuring a simple share comprised of sourced deli-style ingredients to get you started, with expert instruction and pointers on how to create a visually stunning presentation. Next, each of the themed sharing menus is dedicated to one concept and features recipes as well as simple buy-ins and suggestions for aromatic and/or edible garnishes to create a feast for the eyes, senses, and taste buds. Menus include recipes suitable for a relaxed brunch, a summer picnic, a Thanksgiving dinner, an indulgent celebration, a selection of treats to satisfy a sweet tooth, plus feasts for vegans and pescatarians, as well as a grilled cook out spread for lovers of meat.
