Williams-Sonoma Cooking for Friends Cookbook

Learn professional secrets for hosting simple, stylish gatherings that are as much fun for you as they are for your friends. In this cookbook, authors Alison Attenborough and Jamie Kimm share the signature recipes and entertaining strategies that come from their work as two of New York City's most sought-after personal chefs and food stylists. Their philosophy: use each season's freshest ingredients to prepare dishes you love - and rely on imaginative presentation to create festive flourishes. Many of these foolproof recipes teach you how to take one "master" dish and present it four different ways, customizing the flavors and style to suit the occasion. From creative cocktails and appetizers to impressive main courses, side dishes and desserts, the more than 265 beautifully-photographed recipes in this book will carry you through parties with ease and panache. Hardcover, 256 pages.

One of my favourite cookbooks!
November 16, 2012
I found this book at a Home Sense store in Canada and it looked great so I picked it up. I am so glad that I did!! It has such an interesting variety of dishes - all full of exciting flavours and beautiful presentation!
I regularly use recipes from this cookbook when entertaining or even just for weekday dinners with my husband. We love the results! And so do our guests! Always a hit.
If you want an idea of the types of recipes that are in this book, I can say some of my favourites are the Belgian Endive and Persimmons salad, the appetizer section has some great ones like a shrimp and crab with avocado starter, 4 ways to make yummy pissaladieres, figs wrapped with basil and serrano ham on the grill, etc etc. and so much more! Really good stuff.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Design, wonderful recipes
