The Dinner Party Project by Natasha Feldman
Making and eating dinner with your friends should be a blast--nothing tops getting people together, sharing good food, and laughing until you cry. The Dinner Party Project is here to revive and democratize the dinner party, to make it a fun, communal practice rather than a stressful solo performance by the host.
Forget fussy recipes with ingredients lists that run a mile long. With sections on appetizers, main dishes, drinks, sides, and desserts, Feldman provides recipes for every mood and cooking comfort level (including pizza parties, taco nights, and permission to order takeout). Whimsical illustrations help demystify the cheese plate, offer store-bought dessert options, and guide you to your ideal dinner menu; tips within each recipe ensure great results and help you plan ahead and avoid last-minute scrambling.
