Almost vegetarian entertaining : simple and sophisticated recipes for vegetarians, nonvegetarians, and everyone in between

Diana Shaw
Diana Shaw comes to the rescue of aspiring hosts everywhere, with eclectic, sure-fire recipes, and advice and encouragement to inspire both the novice and the veteran party-giver. The basics include how to set a table, choose a wine, buy and serve cheese, and recover gracefully from mistakes. Then come the recipes, geared toward the way we want to eat today, laden with vegetables and bright, fresh flavors. Many that call for chicken and fish can also be made without. Each recipe supplies preparation times, storage tips, and steps to do ahead, while menus and sidebars throughout help home cooks plan a meal. An Occasions chapter offers menus for holidays, barbecues, Sunday suppers, book club meetings, and such events as having the love of your life or your in-laws over to dinner. Included are shopping schedules, basic etiquette tips, advice for preparing your party space, and serving suggestions.--From publisher description
