Indulge in afternoon sundowners in style – with great food and drink ideas and thoughtfully curated playlists from around the world.

At dusk, as afternoon relaxes into evening and the sun sinks towards the horizon, there is a magic moment.

The work day is finally done, and it's time for food and drinks with friends. Dining at Dusk follows the golden hour around the globe – from Samoa, where the sun sets first, through Australia, Japan, India, Europe, Morocco and Brazil, to the USA and Mexico – celebrating the evening with Italian cicchetti, Spanish tapas, Greek mezzes, with tacos, yakitori, ceviche and more.

Simple-to-prepare recipes with roots in local culinary and cultural traditions, each paired with the ideal drink and a thoughtfully curated playlist – this is the perfect cookbook for elegant, laid-back gatherings with friends.

Dining at Dusk showcases a range of contemporary cuisine from around the world for this beautiful time of the day: relaxed, simple, comforting inspiration for food that is the ideal accompaniment to a modern lifestyle.

“Dining at Dusk is magical. The day’s work is done.We can let go and make time for a cool drink, accompanied by small, uncomplicated dishes”
