From the Publisher
Today''s entertaining at home should be relaxed and not keep the
host in the kitchen and away from the company of family and
freinds. Top Sydney cook Ross Dobson''s mantra is to keep it simple
as this collection of fuss-free recipes demonstrates. A chapter on
Grazing offers ideas for fingerfoods and drinks.
Try Roast Pumpkin, Feta, and Olive Empanadas, Slow-cooked tomatoes
with Goat Cheese; or a Smoked Trout, Celeriac, and Apple Salad with
Rye Toasts. With the frugal cook in mind. Cheap and
Cheerful has great recipes for dishes that will keep
guests well-fed without breaking the bank. Try Mushroom, Spinach,
and Potato Bake; Baked Thai-style Fish with Cilantro Rice; or Roast
Chicken Pot Pie. When cooking for friends mid-week time is often an
issue. Food in a Flash features dishes that can be
thrown together with the minimum of effort. Try Pappadelle Pasta
with Chicken Tabbouleh. A chapter of Chic
Eats has perfect recipes for when you want to dine in
style. Try Roast Turkey Breast with Green Olive Salsa or Roast Beef
Rib-eye with Cafe de Paris Butter. Sweet Things
are always popular and a good way to end any meal, however
informal. Treat your guests to Almond, Mascarpone, and Pear Tart;
White Chocolate Pots with Berries; or Cherry and Walnut Brownies.
*With the emphasis on buying good but affordable ingredients and
