And the Art of Living Generously

Laila Gohar

Cookery, Lifestyle

In the lovely, warm, engaging company of Laila Gohar, this is much more than a ‘cookbook’ or even a ‘lifestyle’ book – it’s really about the art of living generously.

Laila Gohar is an internationally recognized installation artist and chef who works with food as her artistic medium. She creates immersive experiences that blur the line between art and dining.

As she explains very eloquently, Laila is neither in one world (born and raised in Egypt) nor another (she lives in Tribeca), neither one thing nor another: she has had to create a space for herself. The recipes she shares are unpretentious (and delicious) – and her philosophy of generosity and simplicity is something we can all relate to.

Known for her high-profile collaborations, and has partnered with such brands as Comme des Garçons, Chanel, Perrier-Jouët, and Tiffany, Laila Gohar’s eye for curation, and ability to tell visual stories that are shared well beyond their initial audience has amassed her a very loyal and engaged following of over 200k followers on Instagram.

She also has just begun a column in the How To Spend It section of the FT.
