Barbara Kafka is the bestselling author of Roasting: A Simple Art, which won a Julia Child Cookbook Award, and Party Food. She writes on a regular basis for The New York Times, is a TVFN (Television Food Network) regular, and contributes to numerous food magazines. She lives in New York City and Vermont.From Publishers Weekly:
Kafka ( The Opinionated Palate ) here combines her talents for creating original recipes with good old common sense. This is a very practical guide to home entertaining (in our teetotaling times) when cocktail parties, as she writes, might be better characterized as "informal parties without assigned seats." Hers is a gathering of "finger food" recipes and ideas for serving store-bought and previously prepared foods, of suggestions for such matters as how to phrase the invitations ("We're all wearing jeans" or "I hope it will be very gala") to valuable--and not often shared--cooking methods: how to pit an olive, how to preserve pickles and chutneys, how to wrap foods in edible leaves and how to open oysters in a microwave oven. Some of the more novel recipes include glazed garlic on brochette, sweet-and-savory soy anise macadamia nuts, clams with black beans, and sage potatoes. A section on beverages rounds out the volume with recipes for nonalcoholic cocktails and champagne drinks. Author tour; HomeStyle Book Club main selection.
