The Gathering of Friends
Entertaining for friends and family is one of my favorite things to do. There is nothing more satisfying to me than to be able to bring smiles to others' faces with the meals I make.
The Gathering of Friends focuses on just that; entertaining family and friends through food. This book is a real keepsake - beautifully bound and filled with gorgeous colorful photos. The recipes are not anything that the average home cook wouldn't be able to make. Each recipe is tried and true, many of them very familiar, but perfectly paired with others and presented in such a way that it makes each meal a memorable one.
There are fifteen gatherings presented in the book, from an Evening Gathering in chapter one to a Hero Shower in chapter fifteen. There is also a chapter devoted to ideas on creating the perfect gathering place - even when you think it's not possible.
Authored by Michelle Huxtable and Alyse Christensen with stunning photos by Matt Christensen, The Gathering of Friends, Volume One is a book you'll cherish for years to come.
