In Parties! Ina Garten shares the secrets she has gleaned from her years as a caterer and a dedicated party giver. Ina's parties are easy to prepare and fun for everyone, including the host. Packed with plans for pulling off parties like a pro, and stories and recipes from her own parties, this is a must-have guide to easy entertaining. *In the spring you can invite your friends to a party where they all make their own pizzas. *Come summer, it's into the garden for a lunch with grilled lamb and pitta sandwiches that guests assemble themselves. *In the autumn, Ina roasts a fresh turkey, which her friends enjoy with a creamy spinach gratin. *And on a winter's day, everyone is invited for a lunch buffet with seafood chowder and butternut squash and apple soup. Delicious! Ina has reached new heights here with recipes like sour cream coffee cake - the ultimate breakfast treat. Salads? The red lettuce, balsamic onions and blue cheese salad; Chinese chicken salad; and panzanella may be the best you've ever tasted. And fillet of beef is easy to make for a fancy dinner with oh-so-good gorgonzola sauce.
With so many great ideas and recipes to choose from, this will be an essential read for anyone who loves a party.
