Description

Entertaining in the Country with Joan Osofsky and Abby Adams


Join us as we visit with authors Joan Osofsky and Abby Adams who share their new book: Entertaining in the Country: Love Where You Eat: Festive Table Settings, Favorite Recipes, and Design Inspiration




ABOUT THE BOOK

Following the success of Love Where You Live: At Home in the Country, Joan Osofsky and Abby Adams serve up an array of inspiring seasonal parties hosted by food professionals and home cooks. These gatherings range from an intimate houseguest breakfast to a large harvest party. Carefully selected for their flair when it comes to entertaining, the hosts welcome the reader into their homes in New York’s bucolic Hudson Valley and New England. Featured are food star Julia Turshen and Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge, who give a neighborly supper; Dana Cowin of Food & Wine fame, who throws a garden cocktail party; and Erin French, the James Beard–nominated chef/owner of The Lost Kitchen in Freedom, Maine, who prepares a lunch in the orchard from her vintage Airstream.

The book includes menus with sixty easy-to-prepare dishes and drinks, such as a tantalizing rhubarb spritzer, falafel with dipping sauces, a savory chicken potpie, and ginger cookies. Throughout are ideas for setting festive tables, floral choices, and decorative touches, as well as how to create a functional kitchen and well-stocked pantry. A list of sources of regional markets carrying local products rounds out this go-to entertaining guide.
