Maybe this book was okay as far as the stars go and maybe I should give it two but I didn't like it What I wouldn't or hadn't thought of on my own for entertaining menus and decor I did not like and was not interested in I was disappointed after starting out with high expectations I loved one of the first photos of beautiful bowls and glassware on an open shelf but I already know that I love those things especially when displayed on an open shelf and I already know how to use them and what to serve in thembut I really wasn't impressed with the photography the best photos are on the cover which there isn't enough of I didn't particularly care for the layout the decor advice was uninspired and the menus were Well the menus were all kinds of things except for sensational If it was something that sounded great to me like the Mexican dinner then it was something everybody who has ever had friends over could think of and has probably done Guacamole and margaritas are pretty basic really good but somewhat unoriginal Mexican meal components I didn't even read most of the recipes because they just didn't appeal to me These dinner party ideas were inspired by dinner parties that Peggy Knickerbocker had held at one time or another which is fine when it's tried and true that's great but than a couple started with picked up great insert ingredient at the farmer's market which really bugged me Some of it was stuff that you're not going to find fresh and beautiful at any market in a small midwestern city especially all of the seafood and there is a lot of seafood in here It may have looked really good that season in that year and it may have been part of a gorgeous meal but just because she found some inspiring seasonal ingredient at a market in Paris or San Francisco does not mean I will be able to recreate the dinner party featuring that dish Beyond all of that honestly these parties read like old people entertaining It just wasn't my thing
