"As we all start returning, albeit sporadically, to life as we knew it, Peppler’s 'À Table' is a fantastic guide to re-learn how to entertain in a way that makes everyone feel like we’re back in the good ol' times."
—The Los Angeles Times

"A prolific food writer and stylist, Peppler cultivated a reputation for hosting relaxed, flavor-infused soirees in Brooklyn and Los Angeles before planting roots in Paris. In this savvy volume, she channels that laid-back style into stylish, sexy gatherings in the tiny apartment of her adopted city."
