This title presents great food for every kind of get-together. Gone are the days of formal dinner parties. Now entertaining is much more casual – it might be a picnic breakfast at the beach, or a group of friends watching a DVD on a Saturday night. Every type of function is catered for here – girls’ lunches, tea parties, cocktail parties, kids’ birthday parties, romantic dinners. As well as fabulous recipes, there’s lots of information on how to plan a party, how much food to provide, what to do in advance and how to make it all go smoothly. These days we’re time-poor but we love our food and we love our friends. This timely book shows us how we can entertain with style and grace.
