Sunday Best Dishes
By: Jorj Morgan
About the Book
"In this debut cookbook, Morgan fondly recalls foods from past Sunday afternoons and evenings that she spent visiting her relatives’ houses, strolling the farmers market, having picnics at the beach, or watching football games." - Kirkus Review
Sunday is the day we relax, worship, cheer on our team, picnic, and generally share time together. Cooking is an excellent way to unwind; a passionate hobby with results that are deliciously shared with friends and family. Combining the two thoughts, Sundays are the best day to have fun in the kitchen.
Whether you’re perfecting your potluck dish to share with friends, packing up a family picnic for a group hike, besting your burger for your pre-game tailgate party, or working on a new skill yielding gourmet results, it’s not all about food—it’s about how you invent it and who you share it with. What better day to begin than Sunday!
