Overview

How to plan, cook, and present with style and ease, with plenty of time left over to slip on heels and pop on lipstick before guests arrive
 
The author has drawn on her many years of successful soirees and laid-back lunches to present time-saving tips and show-stopping recipes for hostesses who want to actually enjoy their own dinner parties. She teaches readers how to do as much of the cooking and preparation beforehand as possible, so they can then relax, spruce up the house, and enjoy quality time with friends. There are recipes here that are perfect for all tastes and occasions, such as Barbecued Mussels with Tangy Pesto Dip; Crostini with Jamón, Goat's Cheese and Fig Jam; Rosemary and Olive Lamb Stew; and Peppermint Brownies. Filled with glamorous illustrations, this cookbook breaks each recipe into which steps can be done days ahead, the morning of, before guests arrive, and just before serving; and it offers suggestions to give each dish an elegant look. Includes dual measurements.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A] stylish accessory for fashionistas who know their way around a kitchen."  —Library Journal 
Library Journal
We all won't look as fabulous in the kitchen as the illustrated "dinner party divas" in this colorful entertaining guide; however, with plenty of tips, menus, and make-ahead techniques and serving suggestions, we can at least be more organized. London food writer and stylist Joyce offers recipes for canapés, starters, mains, sides, sweets, and more, all designed to help readers maximize time spent with guests. Start the evening with Prawn and Water Chestnut Wontons and finish with Profiteroles with Salted Caramel Sauce. VERDICT While this book won't replace entertaining classics, it's a stylish accessory for fashionistas who know their way around a kitchen.
