Overview

When chic Manhattanites absolutely must throw an amazing party, there's only one name programmed into their speed dials: Serena. With a client list that includes Sigourney Weaver, Nathan Lane, Bernadette Peters, and Iman, the woman knows how to host a gathering. It's no wonder New York magazine called her company, Serena Bass, Incorporated, "the best food in the city, hands down."

In Serena, Food and Stories, the fabulous Ms. Bass shares 100 choice recipes, from Guadalajara Hash for brunch, to Chicken Curry Tea Sandwiches, to a mouth-watering Italian buffet. Organized into menus for 11 occasions, large and small, the focus is on ways to make guests feel both well fed and welcome. Part entertaining cookbook, part dishy memoir, this fun read includes charming anecdotes about Serena's family, friends, husbands, and her one faithful companion, Ruby-her little Westie. Between Serena's infectious, highly social vibe and the to-die-for dishes, it'll definitely keep home cooks-and their hungry pals-turning the pages.

Author Bio: London-born SERENA BASS is a high-profile caterer based in New York City. In addition to her successful catering business, she is the namesake behind Serena, the bar/lounge in the basement of the Chelsea Hotel, which she opened in 1999 and has since sold. This is her first book.

DAVID LOFTUS is a widely published food and wine photographer. He is well known for his work with celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Tamasin Day-Lewis, and his books include Island Life: Inspirational Interiors (STC).

London-based photographer ANDRA NELKI specializes in editorial and promotional photography. Her work is in the collections of such museums as Tate Britain and the National Gallery of Wales.

Illustrator and photographer DAVID CROLAND is based in New York City. His work has appeared in many major periodicals including Vogue, The New York Times, and The New Yorker.

    I have the hard cover version but got the e-book as I heard abou

    I have the hard cover version but got the e-book as I heard about the videos plus, for those who haven't tried, doing recipes from a highly portable reader - that doesn't need to be creased down the spine - is such the way to go.

    As to the videos, someone should make a sitcom. Too funny! One after the other. I love this (e)book.

    A delicious read - even if you don't pick up a spoon!

    As fascinating a woman as you'd ever want to meet, Serena Bass is every bit as interesting and unexpected as her recipes. There are comfort foods with a twist, combinations you'd never expect in a million years that just plain work brilliantly, and combinations as intriguing as a tiara with bluejeans. By the time you put this book down, you will not only wish you had a place at Serena's table, you'll wish you could count her as a friend
