out in the bookstores this week is martha’s new entertaining book. i had to have this large six pound book of amazing photographs and outstanding entertaining menus. the book is organized in sections based on menus for different parties and holidays. the photos of her homes and gardens are beautiful and show readers her vast supply of beautiful china and serving pieces. the flowers and her garden photos are stunning.
the recipes for the meals are in the back of the book, separate from the photo stories which include details on how to plan the event along with table and party suggestions. some of my more favorite parties are the fourth of july party and the summer lunch on martha’s picnic boat in maine.
i purchased this book on amazon.com, because the hefty price of $75 in the bookstores seemed a bit to much, even though i am known for my collection of lovely books. check out the amazon price at:
this is a book totally worthy of the purchase. i am already putting together my list of ingredients for several of the recipes for the holidays.
