Overview

An insider’s guide to entertaining, with recipes and tips from America’s most accomplished society hosts. With this inspiring book, you can bring high style to your own gatherings at home. As a luxurious retreat with a storied past, Palm Beach has become renowned for its grand parties. Now, more than twenty of its most celebrated hosts open their doors, revealing secrets for entertaining along with one hundred of their most tried-and-true recipes. Among the illustrious hosts featured are fashion icon Arnold Scaasi, Spanish aristocrat Victoria Amory, and interior designer Celerie Kemble. Included are tips for setting a personalized table, creating a warm mood, and choosing crowd-pleasing dishes. Recipes include Kit Pannill’s Tomato Pudding, Kathryn Vecellio’s Lobster "Risotto," and James Patterson’s Grandma’s Chocolate Cake. Palm Beach Entertaining offers a rare peek into the glamorous world behind the hedges of some of America’s most luxurious private estates.
