Overview

This fun-to-read tips book offers hundreds of ideas for low-fuss, low-anxiety entertaining with friends, for the holidays, and for business purposes.

Author Biography: While Storey's Basic Country Skills has no one specific author — as it is a compilation of the best of Storey's projects, plans, and sage advice — John and Martha's voice of experience rings loud and true throughout the book. Their vision, combined with the editorial expertise of Deb Burns (also a Storey author!) brought this treasury of country wisdom to fruition.

Martha also lent her party-planning advice to Keeping Entertaining Simple. She has mastered the art of relaxed hostessing, whether giving small dinner parties for close friends or large corporate picnics, and she shares her secrets and inspiring ideas with readers. Country-living publisher for more than 17 years, Martha also draws on her country roots to bring you the time-honored classics of the American country kitchen in her book, Treasured Country Recipes from Martha Storey and Friends.

John and Martha Storey founded Storey Communications, Inc. in 1983. They have three children and eight grandchildren. They live in western Massachusetts and farm in Westport, New York.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Storey, executive vice president of Storey Communications, has put together a down-to-earth potpourri of creative yet practical ideas for "frazzleless" entertaining in a wide variety of circumstances and settings. Tops on her list are organization and planning, the use of available help (personal and material) and the simplification of culinary offerings and decor. Storey's ideas are imaginative and useful, and manageable recipes and lighthearted quotations add to the main text, which lends itself to browsing as well as start-to-finish attention. A good selection for patrons who want to host the gathering on special occasions yet have a relaxed time themselves.Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology, Alfred, NY
