With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s coming up, many people are beginning to think about the holiday meals they hope to prepare for their family and friends. Some people are looking to have a totally different experience for their families, and others are looking to enhance their traditional menus with new recipes or accompaniments. This means it is the perfect time to look at Martha Stewarts Menus for Entertaining!
Martha Stewart offers twenty complete menus for gatherings both large and small, casual and sophisticated–all reflecting an elegantly relaxed approach to entertaining. With its delicious recipes, inspired styling, useful information, and exquisite full-color photographs, this book is the indispensable guide to hospitality.
Once a caterer and now a best-selling cookbook author, Martha Stewart has become a lifestyle expert on the domestic life. She also shares her expertise on television and in her monthly national magazine, Martha Stewart Living. She shares tips on cooking and presentation in Menus for Entertaining.
This book includes recipes and photographs for the following occasions: spring celebrations, pink peony dinner, hors d’oeuvres in the garden, small but special baby shower, spring Thai lunch, Louisiana seafood feast, North Carolina barbeque, and crabs and corn cookout.
Other menus include aTuscan buffet outdoors, clambake, surprisingly simple Chinese, “Fried Green Tomatoes” brunch, midsummer fiesta, pasta for a crowd, Halloween “ghoulish” pleasures, Thanksgiving at Turkey Hill, holiday dessert buffet, birthday dinner of gifts, new traditions for Christmas and champagne and caviar New Year’s party.
The recipes in this book are delicious, but not your run-of-the-mill types and a little time-consuming. But if you try them, you will have some happy guests at your events. If you are studying this book, you will find some you love and get ideas from others. See what dishes she combines in her menus and make your own adaptations.
