This cookbook is a celebration of shared homes and their most iconic dishes â€“ the food designed to feed the crowd, without breaking the bank or spending hours in the kitchen. It is a book about community, warmth, love and the unique connection of a nurturing home, where shared meals are central to the environment. Plus, without getting preachy or â€śclean â€™n green eatingâ€ť about it, all the recipes in the book are vegetarian and vegan.The eight chapters are captured in different share houses throughout the inner, sunshiny, suburbs of Brisbane. Each chapter has a distinct theme, as dictated by the culinary skills of those living in the featured house: A breakfast spread menu; Hungover brunch; A leisurely long lunch; Eat it with your hands; Mexican-inspired feast; A Mediterranean dinner party; Pasta night; and Comfort food spread. Through its clean and bright photography â€“ all taken by Clareâ€™s own friends and roommates â€“ The Shared Table is simultaneously luxe and sincere. Itâ€™s a warm and inviting cookbook that every share house needs on their communal bookshelf.
