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.

    Difficult to navigate, uncompelling

    The layout of the book is not easy to read. Recipies have no vlear demarcation. Halfway through, and I haven't found anything I would want to make.

    Entertaining

    Hints on entertaining, lots of cocktail recipes, recipes are more upscaled. Did like oven roasted yukon gold potatoes, chicken potpie and chocolate cream cheese cupcakes. More my taste.
