Dinner After Dark: Sexy, Sumptuous Supper Soirees
by Colin Cowie
This collection of dinner scenarios and recipes is a cookbook, but also claims to be "part decorating, part bartending, part etiquette, and part plain old bon-vivant-ism." Full of ideas and details, it's a great handbook for entertainers of all echelons.

Cowie's Favorites

South Africa native Cowie adores Wilbur Smith, listing several of Smith's books as favorites. "I have been reading him since I was in my early teens," Cowie says. "He is the quintessential African adventure writer who tells epic tales of African mythology that anyone with a love and understanding of Africa MUST read."
