If you follow her blog, you already know that Jenni Epperson loves to write about fashion and food, so it was only natural that when given the opportunity to write a book, it revolved around these two topics. “Fashion + Food: Entertaining at Home in Style” is easily a modern Pinay’s guide to making any meal a celebration.
Jenni’s conveniently arranged the contents by occasion. Whether it’s big events like Birthdays or Christmas or any day affairs like Girl’s Night In or Sunday Brunch, she’s laid out plans for the menu, table settings, and even what to wear!
The pages are laden with inspiring photos taken by her hubby Tom Epperson (she said they would do their shoots until the wee hours after their two kids had gone to bed) and cute illustrations by Soleil Ignacio and Kris Abrigo. Even the book’s design and lay-out by Dix Perez, who’s worked with Jenni in the past, makes it an easy and delightful read; what with her trivia and insights highlighted to seemingly arm you with the right quotes to get your dinner conversation going.
Xandra Ramos-Padilla, National Book Store’s Merchandising Director for Books, noted: “Being the epitome of the modern day woman, Jenni is really the ideal person to guide the reader through the concocting of events and affairs that will always be remembered.” She adds, “A great occasion is always anticipated and, ultimately, enjoyed by both the guests and the host; and thanks to this book by Jenni, women now have a reliable source to turn to when preparing for that much awaited gathering.”
At the book launch last December 6, a tearful Jenni came on stage to thank everyone present, especially her family, for coming to support her that night. She described the book as a labor of love filled with recipes and ideas that have brought color to her own life. We highly recommend you let it bring color to your Holidays too!
“Fashion + Food: Entertaining at Home in Style” by Jenni Epperson retails at P1100 and is available at National Bookstore.
