Dinnertime should be a special time—whether it’s just family gathered together to share food and conversation or a full-scale formal party. And, with this lavishly illustratedHouse Beautiful salute to home cooking and gracious entertaining, every meal and every table will be extraordinary. The 130 mouthwatering recipes—shown on gorgeously designed spreads, with photos and serving ideas—include everything needed for a full supper: salads, soups, appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, and, of course, luscious desserts. Some make great weeknight dinners, including the Herb-Roasted Chicken—or dazzle guests with the fancier fare, such as Poached Filet of Beef with Watercress Sauce, on holidays and other important occasions. “Serving Style” features appear throughout the book, offering invaluable suggestions on tableware, flatware, linens, centerpieces, and other tabletop and serving accessories most appropriate for a recipe. They take into account the food’s colors and textures, as well as the season, menu theme, and any other details that convey a welcoming spirit and generous sense of hospitality.
