Rita's culinary trickery

£3.99

Product description

The author of Domestic Bliss (of which Elle Decoration said:'Makes home time fun and brings out the happy hostess in even the most diehard career woman') turns her talents to cooking and entertaining. Some may want to spend hours slaving over a stove but Rita believes that you should keep things simple. While you do of course want to serve delicious food (and within these pages readers will find clever ideas for essential dishes no chic cook will want to be without), the way you serve your guests tells them as much about how pleased you are to see them as the number of hours you spend in the kitchen. This is a book about entertaining as a whole - and entertaining for Rita is as much about how to create the right atmosphere, the most sensible way to shop and the most stylish way of presenting your food as it is about cooking. Chapters cover breakfasts, simple suppers, dinner parties, celebrations, catering for children, eating outdoors, picnics, puddings, coffee and (most importantly) treats, and each one finishes with a few, stunningly simple recipe ideas that anyone can cook. Stylishly designed with retro artwork, this book will strike a chord with Rita fans everywhere and add sparkle to all our lives.
