First book by the popular Food Network personalities and winners of The Next Food Network Star competition
Everyone loves a party; now hosting can be as fun as attending

The stars of Food Network's popular Party Line with the Hearty Boys bring their signature style of casual entertaining to their first book. These Hearty Boys don't solve literary mysteries, but they sure are great at demystifying party-throwing. Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh are two guys who never attended culinary school yet built one of Chicago's most popular catering businesses. In Talk with Your Mouth Full, the couple's self-deprecating, natural approach to cooking, which has made them such a hit on the Food Network, comes through on every page. Packed with exciting but accessible recipes, clever how-to tips, and a gaggle of tales from the catering trenches, this is truly an entertaining entertainment cookbook.

Featured recipes include hors d'oeuvres, starters, main dishes, side dishes, desserts, and libations. Nibble on Gorgonzola, Fig, and Pecan Cheese Terrine or pass Seared Ahi on Wonton Crisps. Or sit down to enjoy Balsamic Mushroom Chicken and Oven-roasted Root Veggies, and finish the meal with Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes. Talk with Your Mouth Full offers help on everything from chilling wine to decorating a buffet table, as well as complete menus and planning advice. It's the ultimate guide to enjoying food and company.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Smith and McDonagh, who run a popular catering business in Chicago, were the first winners of The Next Food Network Star, which led to their own television show, Party Line with the Hearty Boys. Their first cookbook includes more than 100 recipes for entertaining, from hors d'oeuvres to "libations," along with lots of helpful tips and amusing anecdotes about their experiences in the catering trade. Most recipes include make-ahead information, and there are color photographs throughout, as well as sample menus (with time lines) and a liquor buying guide. For all subject collections.
