Overview

Thanks to Rebecca Lang's Southern Entertaining for a New Generation, you no longer have to be raised in the South to entertain your guests with the hospitality of a Southerner. Designed for her own generation's needs, this creative book on entertaining is packed with tips and hints for easier cooking, and timelines to simplify the process of entertaining. In short, it's about how to host parties with less stress while serving food as good as grandmother used to make. Unlike most books on entertaining, the chapters are organized by the time of day in which a party is scheduled. The recipes are easy enough for the novice cook, and timelines are included to make sure that all of the food will be ready at the appropriate time. Each step is listed by the exact time of day at which it should be done, even when to run the dishwasher. The chapters all contain three or four party themes, each with recipes, serving piece suggestions, detailed timelines, and grocery lists. Some recipes even list lighter ingredients that can be substituted for high-fat ones without compromising taste. Each menu also includes wine suggestions to lessen the stress of choosing wine, even suggesting which glass to use and what to do if the host doesn't have enough wine glasses. Because so many young adults lead busy lives, the menus also include shortcuts in case there isn9t enough time to make the entire menu from scratch.
