Notes From Your Bookseller

The essential guide to hosting parties, Big Night is full of all the recipes and table settings you need to impress guests and ensure your night gets remembered. With vivid photography and food for all occasions, it's all you need for a joyful night.

Elevate your home entertaining with the ultimate guide to hosting unforgettable dinner parties and celebrations.

When Katherine Lewin opened up her first store—a dinner party shop—she had one goal: to help everyone make their meals at home feel a little bit more special. A little bit more joyful. A little bit Bigger. In her debut book, Katherine channels her New York City–based brick-and-mortar’s irresistible energy into a treasure trove of tips, tricks, and hosting essentials for every kind of Big Night. Learn how to Stop Worrying About Everything Matching and Just Set the Table; the step-by-step formula for discovering your (and your guests’) Perfect Martini; and the Cheese Plate of Dreams math of how many ounces to plan per person. 

On top of these helpful sidebars—and in addition to more than 80 recipes for snacks, apps, mains, desserts, and cocktails—you’ll find full menus for 12 Bigger Nights to take you through every occasion, all year long. The first hint of sun in March calls for An Almost-Spring Thing, where you’ll serve ricotta toast with English pea pesto; in the peak of summer, treat everyone to an Italian Vacation Without Leaving the House, starring clam and corn pasta followed by lemon granita; when the leaves have turned, confidently plan The Best Friendsgiving, complete with the ultimate stuffing; and in the dead of winter, lure your friends over with A Noodle Soup to Get People Excited. From date night for two to pull-out-all-the-stops dinner parties to low-key weeknight hangs (delivery pizza encouraged—just make A Big Chopped Salad to go with), this hosting cookbook will help you find all the inspiration you need—and confidence you want—to make any and every night a Big Night.   

Discover the joy of hosting stylish yet effortless parties with this comprehensive guide to memorable holiday gatherings and festive event menus. The ultimate host gift for your favorite party planner, this dinner party cookbook shows you how to make any evening feel like a special occasion through creative presentation, delicious party food, and a celebratory atmosphere.

About the Author

Before she became the founder and CEO of Big Night, Katherine Lewin was a food writer and editor. She worked at The Infatuation for almost six years. She fell in love with New York City through its restaurants, eating incredible meals in packed dining rooms where it felt like anything could happen. The more time she spent in restaurants, the more she wanted to learn how to make her own dinner magic—the kind that comes from feeding people you love, and new friends, too.
