Fine food, a beautifully set table, and good company are among the greater pleasures of life, and holidays and family celebrations are the perfect times to enjoy gracious entertaining at home. These special occasions -- whether a cozy New Year's Eve supper next to a crackling fire, a traditional Thanksgiving feast, or a nostalgic and romantic anniversary dinner -- become cherished memories in our lives. In her Year-Round Holiday Cookbook Marlene Sorosky offers an approach to entertaining that allows you to create truly memorable meals and still be relaxed enough to join in the celebration. Her superb, never-fail recipes incorporate pre-preparation techniques and other shortcuts to save time in the kitchen. She shows you how to set a stunning table with irresistible centerpieces and all sorts of delightful garnishes that incorporate the holiday theme into the presentation of the meal. Marlene Sorosky's choice of recipes reflects her years of teaching experience and her unfailing instinct for the kind of meal people really enjoy. Her menus are so gratifying, their reward far exceeds the time and energy invested in their preparation. Over 100 full-color photographs illustrate step-by-step techniques and show you how to set out the meal and present each dish appealingly. Symbols in each recipe indicate various points to which the dish can be prepared in advance. From receptions, cocktail parties, Passover Seders, Christmas banquets and open houses, to a baby shower brunch, a graduation lunch, a Labor Day picnic, or a Mother's Day breakfast in bed, Marlene Sorosky's Year-Round Holiday Cookbook brings fine food and the pleasure of feting the holidays with family and friends within reach of all of us who love to entertain -- and would like to do it right -- but want it to be easy.
