When does a cook book become a coffee table book? When it’s a cook book written by Ricky Lauren, stylish wife of fashion guru Ralph.
I have been a Ralph Lauren (here , here, and here) fan since the 1980’s when I first smelled his signature fragrance, Lauren, and saw one of his first designs, a simple denim dress. So, I was thrilled when his wife came out with another book.
This book is definitely a triple threat loaded with family photos, family stories, and family recipes.
Ricky tells us about the different homes they have owned in the Hamptons which is the back drop for the book.
The book gives us a taste of how they spend their casual yet elegant summers by showing us photos of Hampton summertime life.
I saw a documentary last year about Ralph’s car collection which is the top collection in the world. Of course, he would have the perfect beach mobile to use as transport for a get-away picnic.
If they don’t feel like riding in the blue Jeep, then they can hop on a bicycle and ride to the dock to pick up some of the day’s catch from local fishermen.
There are so many recipes and food photos that you will be able to plan your menu for weeks.
The book is a five-star production, and I am thrilled to own it.
