When Shaheen Peerbhai and Jennie Levitt moved to France for school, the pair parlayed their love of cooking into "Friday Lunches," a weekly event for which they created homemade picnics for their friends. Word of their delicious food spread, and their friendly gatherings evolved into a pop-up restaurant and eventually a meal-delivery "picnic club" in Paris. Their goal: To bring people together over fresh, locally sourced foods reflecting the many cultures of Paris. Now you can host your own picnic (or dinner party, luncheon, or date night) with this inspired collection of nearly 100 of Peerbhai and Levitt's delectable recipes, including chestnut tagliatelle; salmon gravlax; pecan crusted rack of lamb with parsnip purée and chips; quinoa salad with butternut squash, pomegranate, feta, and hazelnuts; Turkish pot roast; wild mushrooms and poached eggs tartine; chocolate and passionfruit tart; citrus-scented baklava; Moroccan mint tea; and more. Bon appétit!
