Laura Calder is one of Canada’s most charming Food Network hosts, proving herself witty, engaging, an excellent teacher and a great deal of fun. Laura’s passion for cooking and writing about food shines through in her elegant cookbooks. Dinner Chez Moi is menu-based and seasonal, offering multiple options and mix-and-match menus, which gives cooks as many ideas for meals as there are days in the year. Dinner parties, Laura says, are not stuffy and difficult ordeals; rather, as she puts it, “In my world, ‘dinner party’ just means eating with others. It can be as simple as an omelette or a baked potato, but if I’m not stuck eating it alone, that’s party enough for me!” Dinner Chez Moi is a book for anyone who wants to cook for people they love. Detailed plans and menus deliver thoughtful advice and guidance, with a light touch. Photography is as lovely as in French Taste, with a fresh and elegant design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good recipes that are easy to prepare and taste delicious I've been very happy with this cookbook. It has a great deal of variety and is focused on creating tasty meals for friends and family. I love the casual nature of the author's descriptions and her stories that accompany certain dishes. The food is authentic and comfortable, but not boring. I have had huge success with her party slaw (terrible name; delightfully crisp and somewhat sophisticated salad) and it has become my picnic/summer barbeque staple that gets completely devoured by all age groups. She also has a lot of very tasty but economical recipes that are heavy on lentils and warm spices...and some more fancy ideas when you have an extra special guest or a little more time on your hands. This is a good cookbook that I have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed cooking from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Good You can rely on anything Laura Calder tells you. I have no idea what I'm doing in the kitchen and I can't count the number of times something from one of her books has made me look like a genius. I've loved everything I've tried in this book so far. Check out something simple, like "toffee" and you'll see how easy this books makes it to look like a pro.
