sunday suppers gathering
This past weekend I hosted a City Picnic in celebration of the Sunday Suppers, Recipes + Gatherings Cookbook by Karen Mordechai. I stumbled upon Sunday Suppers a few years ago on Instagram; a gorgeous feed filled with pictures from Karen’s Brooklyn studio. There I saw many of my favorite food bloggers and photographers hosting and participating in gatherings and sessions. I tried not to be envious, wishing plane tickets weren’t quite so expensive. But they are, so I looked on from a distance, happy to watch others partake.

When Karen asked me if I’d like to host a small gathering for her cookbook launch, I replied ‘yes!’ with no hesitation. A few months later I found myself on the lawn just outside the Gutherie Theater in Downtown Minneapolis, sharing a lovely city picnic with a few good friends and all our little ones. The sun was blazing but we were tucked under trees, basking in shade and a perfect menu, straight from the pages of the book. My children asked me all week long if we could ‘go back to the picnic again’, which I took as a sign of a really good day, tucked away in their memories. It will be in mine.

    This is the loveliest post, Sarah. It looks exactly like the sort of day that would have me asking to go back to the picnic (how precious!) all week, too <3! And I have to echo everyone else — you have such a gift with capturing human moments and emotions. I love seeing what you do each time. Thank you for sharing!

    these photos are gorgeous and I just love this! the simple idea of getting close friends and family to share a meal together outdoors. simple, yet perfect. that fennel slaw sounds out of this world. excited to get my hands on a copy of the cookbook! thanks for sharing!
