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.
