After Dinnerby Kristine Kidd, Chuck Williams
When you entertain at home, some of the most memorable moments come after the meal ends, when guests settle into comfortable chairs to enjoy coffee and after-dinner drinks, a few tasty morsels, and some good conversation, music, or games. This volume in the Williams-Sonoma Lifestyles series is dedicated to enhancing this special part of the evening, with a wealth of easy entertaining ideas, beverage suggestions, and inspired recipes devoted to crowning any occasion with unforgettable flair. After Dinner features 44 delicious recipes for special treats expressly designed to be enjoyed after the conclusion of a meal: cookies and cakes; chocolates and confections; fruits, nuts, and cheeses; and beverages. Created by noted food authority Kristine Kidd, each recipe includes helpful tips and hints, a nutritional analysis, and a beautiful full-page, full-color photograph. A comprehensive introduction explains all the basics of after-dinner entertaining, including creating a comfortable environment, setting up and stocking a bar, brewing perfect coffee and tea, presenting a cheese tray, and planning simple menus. A detailed glossary provides information on key after-dinner ingredients.
