Entertaining in the Country
LOVE WHERE YOU EAT
Festive Table Settings, Favorite Recipes, and Design Inspiration
A natural follow-up to Joan Osofky’s and Abby Adam’s successful first book, Love Where You Live: At Home in the Country, which focused on design, this new book features an array of inspiring seasonal parties hosted by home cooks and food professionals, like food star Julia Turshen and Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge; Dana Cowin of Food & Wine fame; and Erin French, the James Beard–nominated chef/owner of The Lost Kitchen in Freedom, Maine. With glowing endorsements from some of today’s most influential tastemakers, Entertaining in the Country: Love Where You Eat is an indispensable guide to casual home entertaining filled with imaginative ideas, practical tips, and delicious recipes from well-known chefs, and restaurateurs.
The book includes menus with 60 easy-to-prepare dishes and drinks, such as a tantalizing rhubarb spritzer, falafel with dipping sauces, a savory chicken potpie, and ginger cookies. Throughout are ideas for setting festive tables, floral choices, and decorative touches, as well as how to create a functional kitchen and well-stocked pantry. Plus, a list of sources of regional markets carrying local products.
