In Comfortable Entertaining, Nathalie Dupree has written the book that gives us permission-at long last-to entertain in a less-than-perfect world. A much-loved cookbook and television personality, Dupree has thrown parties on rooftops and in tiny apartments, planned galas for hundreds, and put on last-minute get-togethers. Comfortable Entertaining is the book that shows us how to do what Dupree does best-create spontaneous hospitality and great food. This full-range cookbook and entertaining guide features twenty-six full menus, from holiday classics to an eye-popping formal dinner party for eight, from soup parties and brunches to more casual meals and salad lunches. Dupree displays colorful and attractive napkin and tablecloth arrangements, explains how to seat feuding guests, and tells us what to do when dinner burns to a crisp minutes before the guests arrive (order out!). Illustrated throughout with color photographs and packed with 250 life-is-not-perfect recipes, Comfortable Entertaining is as friendly, inspiring, and down-to-earth as a cookbook can get.

Bring It! is the ultimate source for potluck, picnic, or dinner party-worthy dishes that combine simple prep with big taste! The word "potluck" may inspire memories of church dinners and mystery covered dishes. But today's potlucks are essentially outsourced dinner parties, which make gathering around a shared table a cinch. Inside Bring It!, you will find dozens of impressive-looking recipes that come together easily, and are perfect for carrying to any occasion. Author Ali Rosen has put a long career in the food world to use, drawing on chef and restaurant secrets for easy dishes that will have friends begging for the recipe. Must-have dishes include: · Pimento Cheese and Crab Dip · Snap Pea Salad with Parmesan and Bacon · Pistachio and Anchovy Pasta · Short Ribs with Quick Pickled Shallots · S'mores Bars Each recipe includes a note called "How to Bring It," for make-ahead, reheating, and transport instructions. Flavors are designed for maximum impact, but won't take hours to cook, or require special ingredients. Have dinner with the neighbors, sit down to a picnic in the park, or bring a dish to the school luncheon. They come together easily, hold well, and travel beautifully. They'll have you rethinking the potluck.

Alicia Rountree's debut book is a refreshing guide for achieving harmony and health in your life, showing readers how to create casual gatherings as well as daily rituals to enhance their well-being. Inspired by the colors and textures of her tropical roots, Alicia Rountree shares her carefree lifestyle in her paradisiacal home in Mauritius--from a picnic on a sandbank to a sunset dinner on the beach and quiet time at home sipping tisanes. Her refreshing entertaining style is shown at her family's beach retreat and colonial stone homes as well as on deserted beaches. Chic tabletops are dressed up with a mix of heirloom and contemporary tableware, palmiers are worked into table decor, and fresh herbs or flowers are tucked in napkin rings fashioned from twine. Throughout Alicia also offers advice to promote wellness in daily life, such as energizing recipes including a lemongrass tonic, avocado toast, and nourishing dal. Vases full of vibrant blooms, such as bird-of-paradise and palm fronds, are used to create a serene decor. For the style-conscious and health-minded, Alicia's outlook is uplifting.
