"Julia Sherman is a constant source of inspiration. In her cookbook Arty Parties, she brings passion and innovation to cooking and entertaining like no one else I know. This book is a creative platform for human connection."--Mina Stone "chef at Mina's café at MoMA PS1 and author of Cooking for Artists"
"Julia Sherman is a grand champion of creative get-togethers. She wants you to be one too and this gem of a book is the spark you need if you tend to talk yourself out of entertaining (we've all been there). Arty Parties gets under the hood and shows you how to make the world your dining room, rethink what it means to host, cook great food, and have fun in the process."--Heidi Swanson "author of Super Natural Simple"
"Arty Parties is so utterly original, playful, and practical that if it doesn't inspire you to throw a party, I don't know what will. Amid thoughtful recipes highlighting exquisitely sourced ingredients, Julia Sherman profiles a mix of artists' parties that run the gamut from a chic Parisian office party to a queer performance night in Upstate New York. Everything in the book has the same message: Food is visual art, a performance, and sustenance. The next time you entertain, think outside the box."--Stephanie Danler "author of Sweetbitter and Stray"
"Julia Sherman is bursting with delicious ideas: eat a halved furikake-sprinkled avocado, perhaps on the go or over the sink! Soak some sour cherries in vodka for a memorable hostess gift! Toss a head of romaine on the grill and mix it with celery-kumquat salsa to make a mouth-watering salad! Sherman takes us in hand and teaches us not to be too precious in the kitchen: to experiment, make a mess, try something new. This book is a reminder that food is a party, and a really good one at that."--Naomi Fry "staff writer, The New Yorker"
