Chris Kohatsu has a way of making it look easy and impossible to resist. Having been lucky enough to sit at her table many times over the years, I know her sumptuous meals are an equal match to her grace and graciousness. If you love your friends, follow Chris’s advice… your friends will thank you for it.

Chris’s amazingly positive energy and infectious good mood turns any everyday encounter into a party.
Chris Kohatsu’s recipes are simple, easy-to-follow and absolutely delicious. I’m excited to cook my way through this book for my family and friends. They make you want to get in the kitchen with friends and have fun!
There could not be a better title for the book because I know from Chris’s perspective food is nothing without friends to share it with. Her generosity of spirit is evident in every dish she makes and there is a love and a joy that goes into Chris’s food that you can actually taste. I have had the pleasure of enjoying Chris’s delicious food on a few occasions when she has traveled to DC (and cooked for her friends), and as a known food lover I highly encourage people to not only buy the book and try the recipes, but do as Chris does, prepare food as a gift and share it with friends.

Our senses play such an important role in creating lasting memories. Some of my most vivid memories include gatherings with friends – old and new – and the aromas and tastes of Chris Kohatsu’s culinary treats. I invite you to dive into Chris’ cookbook and create some special memories of your own with friends and family. I’m proud to call Chris a good friend and am so pleased she is sharing her special talents with you!
