Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Leva has turned his longtime love of hosting celebrations into a glamorous party guide book that he hopes will inspire others, especially those intimidated by the festive process.  Written with longtime friend, textile designer Nancy Parker, Recipes for Parties features 10 different affairs, from a cocktail party at dusk to a family lunch... The book's decor, a mix of price points ranging from Pottery Barn to West Elm, was simple. Leva used test tube bottles from kids' chemistry sets for flower vases, and rock salt to display hors d'oeuvres.  He stressed that creative doesn't mean expensive." ~Boston Herald.com

"Michael Leva and Nancy Parker pull together incredible - and doable - recipes and ideas for entertaining in their new book Recipes for Parties." ~Tory Burch blog

"Hosting will be worry-free with Recipes for Parties by Michael Leva and Nancy Parker as your guide.  Their new book has more than just menus - you'll find suggestions for flowers, invitations and decor. The simple recipes will make you look like a prime-time entertaining guru!" ~Connecticut Cottages & Gardens
