Enter To Win! “Christmas Entertaining” by Georgeanne Brennan

by admin on December 2, 2013

   Woo Hoo!  The holidays are here and we are going to celebrating in style on Ehell with lots of give aways this month!

First up is this copy of “Williams- Sonoma Christmas Entertaining”  by Georgeanne Brennan

I love the detailed work plans for each type of party in this book.  Excellent guide for those who need a little help hosting a lovely holiday party but still of great use for veteran hosts and hostesses.

Book Description:  In Williams-Sonoma Christmas Entertaining, you’ll discover everything you need to know to welcome guests into your home with style and ease.
Organized around six festive holiday occasions, this book provides complete menus and decorating ideas, all designed to fit the way people like to entertain and spend time together today: a cozy Fireside Cocktail Party; an Italian Christmas Eve supper; a chic Christmas Eve in the City; a lavish, traditional New England Christmas; a sparkling Snow Country Breakfast; and a casual New Year’s Day Open House.

There are some fifty easy-to-master recipes for everything from make-ahead finger food to appetizers, main courses, and desserts. The beautiful color photography and step-by-step style and drink ideas make it easy to create elegant centerpieces, signature beverages, and delightful welcoming touches that transform the table and the house. Helpful reference sections provide guidelines on tableware, setting up a buffet, selecting wine, and more.

You can follow the detailed work plans included in each chapter to create a complete party, or mix and match recipes and ideas to assemble your menus. Either way, you’ll find everything you need for hosting memorable holiday get-togethers with style and confidence.

I love “how to entertain” cookbooks. They only get more awesome as they age. I have Great Dinners from Time Life and it includes the instructions to give your butcher, the order to place at the fishmonger, and where to find truly exotic ingredients like dried peppers. This is in addition to helpful hints about what can be made ahead, when to serve cocktails, and when you have to stop visiting with the guests and pop in to check the roast.

WOW! That sounds like an awesome book. We hosted the family Thanksgiving-Chanukkah at our house for the first time (we usually went to my husband’s parents house), and though it was exciting, it was quite challenging. (My in-laws are awesome people, and everyone helped us out… so everything turned out better than I thought it would).
