Launching a US edition of my cookbook Friends, Food, Family: Essential Recipes, Tips & Secrets for the Modern Hostess from LibertyLondonGirl.com was, in the time-honoured cliché, beyond my wildest dreams. (Releasing it here in the UK was incredible enough.)
So you can imagine my delight when people started saying lovely things about it in some of my favourite American publications from W to Domino, Architectural Digest to Lonny.
I also thought this might be a good time to point out that it’s on SALE FOR AN AMAZING $9.51, a 62% discount on the list price of $24.95 ON AMAZON.COM today, so this would be an excellent time to buy a copy for everyone for Christmas. Subtle, am I not?! (It’s also reduced in the UK to £13 – also a tremendous bargain!)
And here are the links to some of the reviews and stories that have appeared so far (more to come!):
Architectural Digest – Where to Eat in London, According to British Blogger Sasha Wilkins
“Sasha Wilkins is the sort of girl you want at your dinner party. The Wall Street Journal Magazine style editor turned lifestyle blogger has perfected that effortlessly elegant kind of cooking that says, “I just whipped up this terrific cake after a day at the park.”
Domino – The Modern Hostess Handbook By A Blogger Who KNOWS This Stuff
“Sasha Wilkins, or as you know her, Liberty London Girl, just released her new cookbook, Friends, Food, Family: Essential Recipes, Tips, and Secrets For The Modern Hostess–and these recipes are real. They’re designed for the hostess that actually wants to attend her party, rather than spend half of it in the kitchen. Don’t be shocked if a few of these scrumptious recipes work their way into your daily cooking routine, too!”
Lonny – With her new cookbook, LibertyLondonGirl blogger Sasha Wilkins is officially the British culinary babe we want to be.
“Our rampant Anglophilia aside, we wholeheartedly recommend this book as one you’ll cook from frequently, not just display…If we could fall right into the pages of this cookbook and live happily ever after, we would.”

“Given Wilkins’ creativity, it’s a safe bet her “friends and family” equate eating what she’s prepared with happiness, perhaps even going so far as to consider it one of their favorite occupations…Her taste is impeccable, her sense of style spot-on.”
