The Gourmet Potluck: Show-Stopping Recipes for the Buffet Tableby Beth Hensperger, Scott Peterson (Photographer)
Has yet another potluck invitation landed in your mailbox? The anitdote to any resulting what-should-I-bring woes, The Gourmet Potluck is the definitive guide to being the star of every meal cooked by committee. Here, the caterer and award-winning cookbook author Beth Hensperger shares her fifty favorite crowd-pleasing recipes, including Filo Green Tart with Fresh Dill and Feta; Zucchini, Turkey, and Wild Rice Casserole; Sweet Potato Torta with Apple, Parmesan, and Fresh Thyme; and Moroccan Chicken with Dried Fruit and Olives.
Organized seasonally and focusing on fresh ingredients (with several vegetarian options), these recipes are sophisticated, straightforward, and so delicious that everyone will beg for copies. Some recipes are scaled to serve an intimate gathering of eight people; others, a large buffet of thirty-six. All transport well, have a wide appeal, and are proven to send the serving dish home empty. Each recipe also includes a preparation timeline, serving equipment requirements, transportation notes, and reheating instructions. From Super Bowl parties to summer barbecues to bridal showers, this book dishes up ideas and tips aplenty for every potluck occasion.
