This summer, I teamed up with my friends at lemlem to create a healthy, fresh, and bright summer menu. It’s all meant to be served family style, which to me is what summer is all about – casual, nonfussy meals with lots of friends gathered around the table. It was easy to be inspired by all the beautiful colors and stripes signature to lemlem’s handwoven collection. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m usually wrapped in one of their scarves, dresses, or beach coverups and like their clothes, this is an easy, effortless summer menu (with maybe just a little prep ahead of time).
The dishes in the cookbook are perfect together as a summer dinner party and also great alone. I also love a good clean cocktail – for me it’s usually tequila or mezcal on the rocks – but this one feels much more special. To get all the recipes, join the list by Sept 1 and I’ll get it straight to your inbox. Here’s a little peak at the menu.
