Simple Soirees: Seasonal Menus for Sensational Dinner Parties by Peggy Knickerbocker
Reviewed by Ann Ellenbecker
"Peggy Knickerbocker's Simple Soirees is a testament to good food and entertaining. Each menu includes tips for table decorating and a handy party planning guide, which details what can be done days or hours ahead of time. But the real treasure here are Knickerbocker's gorgeous recipes and her inimitable talent for marrying flavors. For example, 'An Impromptu Salmon Supper' brings together Warm Figs Wrapped in Serrano Ham, Grilled Salmon Smothered in Peas and Mint, Corn on the Cob, Heirloom Tomato Salad with Basil Vinaigrette, and Blackberry-Peach Crisp ? simple, beautiful, and satisfying."
