Platters and Boards-Beautiful, casual spreads for every occasion
A visually-led cookbook with recipes for 40 easy, attractive platters or boards for every meal occasion or gathering. Each board 'recipe' is presented as a list with minimal method; each includes tips on arranging, a (more traditional) recipe for one of the items featured on the board, or a drink to pair with it. There are an additional 10 recipes for essentials – infused honey, homemade cheese straws, candied pistachios – that take any board to the next level with a homemade touch. Introductory content includes suggestions for materials that can be used as a board; how to mix textures, flavours, or come up with a theme; assembling, arranging, and portioning (for 2 to 100 people). Every board will be photographed, and many of the recipes will be photographed for hero shots. Each board recipe includes a drink pairing and a meat pairing (Shelly is a vegetarian, Wyatt is her boyfriend who eats meat).
