From Telegraph journalist Rose Prince comes the only book you'll ever need for effortless, elegant entertaining.
Whether you're a beginner looking for simple, impressive recipes to sate friends and family, or a seasoned host hoping to inject your repertoire with stylish, interesting ideas, you'll find all you need in Dinner & Party.
Rose's stance on entertaining is that the cook shouldn't be banished to the kitchen; cooking for friends and family needn't be fussy or hard to juggle, but instead made up of dishes that can be prepared in advance, dressed up to impress last minute and enjoyed by everyone. With this in mind, Part 1: Dinner showcases easy options for every course, all alongside thoughtful advice about how to source ingredients, when to begin preparation and how to serve. Meanwhile, Part 2: Party provides tried and tested catering ideas for larger groups, from indoor picnics, to standing parties and Christmas dinners.
Including sample menus and updating dinner party etiquette for the 21st century, this is the friendly, practical guide to making entertaining easy.
