About the Book:

Simple + Nostalgic + Sophisticated + Casual = Modern Hippie

The Modern Hippie Table invites you to slow down and create a sanctuary at home, using food and conversation to bring people together, strengthen family bonds, and forge lifelong friendships. The more than 70 recipes are elevated, yet simplified, with a mix of fresh fruits and vegetables plus quality prepared ingredients, ensuring the host has plenty of time to enjoy the gathering too. Gorgeous, doable decorating ideas for the tabletop include the use of flowers, linens, and surfaces in a unique way to set the scene quickly and economically and create an atmosphere of laid-back elegance. With an array of menus to help plan any meal, big or small, this lifestyle cookbook encourages everyone to use their inner Modern Hippie to find joy in the art of cooking and entertaining in a fun, relaxed, and approachable way.
