Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In this veggie-friendly tome, caterers Donenfeld and Gordon pull back the curtain to reveal their favorite dishes for get-togethers, many calling for just a handful of ingredients. Grouped into categories such as parties for two or daytime parties, the duo offers a three to five course menu that includes small bites, as well as desserts and drinks. The dishes, many of which are vegetarian and even vegan-friendly, vary wildly. Simple party-starters such as Chili Lime Almonds or Spiced Roasted Chickpeas come together quickly, but others will take more time, sourcing, and skill (Kimchi Scallion Pancakes, Crab Fritters with Creamy Mustard Sauce, Skirt Steak with Quick Pickled Leeks, Scapes and Gigante Beans). While the book is well-designed and easy on the eyes, it's at the expense of the recipes since no space is left for a description of the dish or what the diner can expect. More creative fare such as Cinnamon Corn Ice Cream with Blueberries, Edamame Dumplings, and Caramelized Onion Crème Fraiche with Blistered Veggies would have benefited from more elaboration. Experienced hosts and hostesses will find much to enjoy, but novices looking for a party planning catch-all may wind up frustrated. "
