Dinner Partiesby Norman Kolpas
Dinner Parties presents 10 diverse menus for memorable meals, each complete with several courses and special serving and beverage suggestions. You can choose to suit the weather (perhaps the Southern-Style Barbecue featuring Sweet-and-Spicy Ribs and Peach Cobbler), the season (a Spring Celebration Supper finished by a crisp Watermelon-Chardonnay Ice) or your mood (a Romantic Dinner for Two beginning with Oysters with Six Garnishes). And since all the dishes are easy to prepare as well as delicious, you may want to try your hand at a cuisine from a different country or region, such as the Mediterranean Buffet, Thai Dinner or New England Lobster Boil. Vegetarian dishes are clearly identified with a special icon throughout -- there is even an entire Vegetarian Feast.
Dinner Parties also offers valuable tips on selecting wine and other beverages. Whenever possible, the recipes include hints, recommendations and shortcuts to make your party preparation quick and easy. A section called "The Art of Presentation" offers expert advice on worry-free advance planning and setting the stage for your most successful parties yet.
