What's the dish way to entertain? The simple and stylish way! Instead of a stressful sit-down, bring-out-the-good-china dinner party for eight, it's a vibrant stand-up tapas or cocktail party with fun soup shooters and substantial one-bite nibbles. Or, instead of a traditional buffet, it's a gourmet, interactive, family-style dinner gathering with abundant bowls and platters of favourite dish salads and mains.
Trish Magwood is the entrepreneur and creative spirit behind the concept that is dish, a cooking school, catering company, cafe and retail business. Known as well for her hit television show parry dish, she has refined her own stylish, confident and contemporary approach to cooking and entertaining. Featuring easy-to-master techniques, caterers' tips and top-notch, fresh ingredients, dish entertains is precisely the cookbook that time-starved home cooks can turn to for both innovative and classic recipes, without compromising quality or style--always simple, beautiful and deliciously fabulous.
Chapters in dish entertains--from hors d'oeuvres, through soups, salads, mains and desserts--are divided in two categories: everyday simple, for your mid-week needs (even dinner with your spouse at the kitchen table counts as entertaining), and special occasions (recipes that are little labours of love for celebrating life's milestones). From simple to elegant, every recipe will inspire with great presentation ideas and time-saving tips.
Dig in and enjoy this gorgeous cookbook that combines the age-old love of food with the new-age love of entertaining. These confidence-inspiring recipes allow you to cook and entertain just for the fun of it, and to be a guest at your own party, too.
