BEST OF BRIDGE SUNDAY SUPPERS: Recipes for Family & Friends


An all-new collection of recipes that celebrates what’s on the table and who’s around it.

Quick meals will always hold a special place in our hearts, especially during a hectic work week, but sometimes it’s wonderful to take your time, put a meal together with extra care and sit around the table with family and friends to savor both the food and the company. Hence, the concept of Sunday Suppers — dinners that inspire talking and laughing with the people who are most important to us.

Best of Bridge has always been about home entertaining, inviting people in and feeding them well. It doesn’t have to be extravagant — it could be pizza or taco night. Whether you love to spend the day creating in the kitchen or need some simple ideas that will bring family back around the table, this collection of recipes celebrates what’s on the table and who’s around it.
