About the Author:

LOU JANE TEMPLE, the former owner of Cafe Lulu in Kansas City, continues to develop menus for new restaurants. She writes about food and entertaining for Kansas City Magazine, and is the author of the Heaven Lee Mysteries, a series of culinary thrillers.

A. CORT SINNES is the author of three popular cookbooks on grilling, including The Grilling Encyclopedia, which was nominated for a James Beard Award, and The Gas Grill Gourmet, which has sold more than 150,000 copies. He lives in Napa Valley.

STEVEN ROTHFELD's photographs have appeared in numerous magazines and books.

From Publishers Weekly:

In addition to offering 100 delicious-sounding recipes, this colorful cookbook has a social goal: to get readers to enjoy food in the company of family and friends. Temple (a former restaurant owner and author of a series of culinary thrillers) and Sinnes (author of three books on grilling) emphasize the communal aspect of eating as they present seasonal recipes for dinners designed to serve 8 to 12 people, but that can be adapted for larger gatherings. Yes, there’s meatloaf (it’s Company Meat Loaf, fancied up with hard-boiled eggs) and Tuna Noodle Casserole (kicked up with tuna steaks instead of the canned variety). But there are also innovative new dishes, like Eggplant Roll-Ups with Caramelized Onions, Oxtails with Green Olives, New Potato Salad with Grapes and Almonds, and Snapper à la Veracruzana. Many meals can be made ahead, freeing chefs to enjoy a glass of wine with their pals while they enjoy the delicacy that they’ve created. Photos.
