Friends in Food
From the very beginning, food has been an essential part of Laine. Thus, it only felt natural to add cooking to the genres our small publishing house focuses on.
Friends in Food by Pia Alapeteri is a fillable book for everyone who sometimes eats together with family and friends. Gradually, a lovely database for dinners, birthday parties, cottage weekends and everyday meals grows in between the covers, listing friends’ diets and allergies, favourite foods and ingredients they cannot stand. No more guessing how many guests drink tea, who loves coriander, which plant milk anyone’s coffee needs, or who loves gin & tonic – all of this with a twinkle in the eye.
The book also consists of short and encouraging true stories of eating together, simple recipes, and tips that make it easier to gather around a common table.
Pia Alapeteri is a food influencer, storyteller and an entrepreneur from Helsinki, Finland. She writes medium dry stories about food, wine and a little bit about love, too. Family and friends, food, a sustainable lifestyle and the unique Finnish nature are at the top of her priority list. In her blog, Pia shares memorable food experiences, the results of her experimentative cooking, heartfelt encounters, cottage journal entries and tales from her trips in Finland.
