From the mint juleps kicking off Derby Day to the Spanish Christmas cookies by the fireplace, these hostesses offer easy ideas that anyone can achieve at home. These ladies show that taste is all about how you put things together—on a tabletop, in a vase of flowers, with handmade invites. It’s these small touches, and the generous spirit behind them, that will inspire readers everywhere. The recipes they’ve chosen are tried-and-true crowd-pleasers that are guaranteed to be down-to-earth dishes you’d be proud to present at any occasion.

    Park Avenue Potluck CELEBRATIONS:Menus for 14 Glorious Holiday Celebrations

    I love Park Avenue Potluck and the follow up book -- Park Avenue Potluck CELEBRATIONS -- doesn't disappoint. It is even more beautiful with many more photographs of New York and the Hamptons. The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Florence Fabricant have outdone themselves. The recipes and entertaining tips have been contributed by members and friends of The Society of MSKCC -- Many have been passed down through generations from mothers to daughters and now to us! The book features 14 menus for family celebrations including my favorite holiday Thanksgiving! I have Ilana's Pumpkin Muffins in the oven right now... and we are also having Butternut Squash Soup and Corn Bread Pecan Stuffing. YUM! And the best gift of Thanksgiving: Part of the book sales are donated to The Society.
