The James Beard award-winning dish entertains is a modern classic. Adhering to the style and approach of Trish Magwood's dish cooking studio and catering company, this gorgeous cookbook--available now for the first time in paperback--shows you how to entertain the "dish" way. And what is the dish way? It's a kitchen "tapas" party instead of a formal sit-down dinner, a cool shooter of soup instead of a standard bowl, a stand-up nibbles spread instead of a buffet. The dish way is the new way: easy, affordable, fun and stylish. With straightforward, professional recipes and stunning photographs, "dish entertains "is lush and accessible, easy to cook from and a delight to read. Insiders' tips, advice and expertise from caterers appear in sidebars throughout. Novice to advanced home cooks will benefit equally from this book, as Magwood inspires us to entertain with style and confidence.
