From Barnes & NobleEntertaining Made Easy
Entertaining at home can occasionally be nerve-racking. Or at least the anticipation can be. How do I time it so that every course is ready at the right moment? Do I dazzle my guests with the pan-seared bass or the scallop seviche? Will everyone enjoy themselves? Ellen Wright puts some of those pre-dinner fears to rest in her book, Bridgehampton Weekends. Not only does she champion casual home-cooked meals (bye-bye bicycle pump for the Peking Duck), she also suggests avoiding last-minute panic by making some courses in advance and freezing them until they are needed. Wright's recipes are arranged in menu form to make your planning easier. You can never tell in advance if your guests will have a good time, but if you're at ease, your guests will be, too.
