Overview

Growing up in a close-knit Italian family, Cristina Ferrare learned early that nothing equals the satisfaction of putting together a delicious meal, setting a lovely table and getting rave responses from the people you care about. Cristina Ferrare's Family Entertaining brings all these elements together in a beautiful book filled with menus, more than 150 recipes, gift and decorating ideas, and, most of all, Ferrare's sense of what makes a meal truly magical.

Ferrare takes us through a year full of celebrations at her home, with osso buco, risotto and chocolate mousse cake for New Year's, through Mother's Day, the Fourth of July and a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast, to five festive and delicious menus for parties during the Christmas season. A great believer in creativity and flexibility in entertaining, Ferrare suggests ideas for a birthday party, a Mexican fiesta and a late-summer picnic that take advantage of the fruits and vegetables of the season. She also includes many of her family's traditional Italian recipes—variations on her mother's and grandmother's classics, including fourteen different pasta sauces—and her own favorite comfort foods, such as chicken pot pie with a cornbread crust.

Cristina Ferrare's Family Entertaining inspires us to make every day a celebration of home, family and food.

    Love this must keep cookbook! Kept with affection right next to

    Love this must keep cookbook! Kept with affection right next to my Ancient Fanny Farmer cookbook, you can Not miss this chef!.
    I became a better cook by watching Christina on the old, great Home and Family TV Show and have this cook book on my shelf in a plac of honor! Her meat rub recipe is a favorrite of our extended family--so much so that my personal twist on the recipe is an often requested gift! Her rosemary chicken glaze recipe is so well loved that durring the summer I always keep a jar of rosemary, cooked garlic, and olive oil in the refregerator for quick dousing on our chicken pieces before they are put into the freezer on grocery shopping day. Easier to just thaw and make up the glaze the day I need it. Christina writes an acessable cookbook. And I know this because the first recipe my non-cooking sister made was one of Christina's so I know this cookbook is for every cook or newbie! For me, this is must Keep and share with friens cookbook! I am sad to see that it is not offered for my Nook Tablet!!
    A winner!
