Not yet rated | write a review
Growing up in a close-knit Italian family, Cristina Ferrare learned early that nothing equals the satisfaction of putting together a delicious meal, setting a lovely table and getting rave responses from the people you care about. Cristina Ferrare''s Family Entertaining brings all these elements together in a beautiful book filled with menus, more than 150 recipes, gift and decorating ideas, and, most of all, Ferrare''s sense of what makes a meal truly magical.

Ferrare takes us through a year full of celebrations at her home, with osso buco, risotto and chocolate mousse cake for New Year''s, through Mother''s Day, the Fourth of July and a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast, to five festive and delicious menus for parties during the Christmas season. A great believer in creativity and flexibility in entertaining, Ferrare suggests ideas for a birthday party, a Mexican fiesta and a late-summer picnic that take advantage of the fruits and vegetables of the season. She also includes many of her family''s traditional Italian recipes--variations on her mother''s and grandmother''s classics, including fourteen different pasta sauces--and her own favorite comfort foods, such as chicken pot pie with a cornbread crust.

Cristina Ferrare''s Family Entertaining inspires us to make every day a celebration of home, family and food.
