E-BOOK EXCERPT

Michele Evans knows there is nothing so satisfying to a hostess as a happy, well-fed crowd. She also knows that even the most confident cook might easily be intimidated by the idea of cooking for more than a handful of guests. The thought of a buffet dinner for sixteen can bring visions of pots bubbling out of control or a menu of tired standbys such as roast beef and three-bean salad. With Fearless Cooking for Crowds, all that is changed. Evans has created more than three hundred foolproof recipes specially developed for entertaining groups of eight to fifty. Whether you are planning a formal dinner for eight or a buffet brunch for fifty, you will find delicious, unusual, uncomplicated recipes for every course from hors d’oeuvres to quick and easy desserts. Michele Evans believes that cooking for fifty is not ten times more difficult than cooking for five. The secret is organization, organization, organization—from invitations and menu planning to working with large quantities of food. You will never again feel frantic trying to multiply your favorite dish for six for a crowd of 24. Evans has designed perfect recipes for groups of 8, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 50. There are accompanying charts on cooking large amounts of pasta and rice and detailed instructions for assembling a recipe for a large crowd, a seemingly daunting chore. Evans also never forgets that beautiful, delicious cooking for crowds need not be expensive. The luscious recipes for casual or elegant meals, include: Indonesian Pork and Pineapple Ragout with Peanut Sauce for 8; Boneless Breast Coq au Vin for 12; Mixed Berry Crepes with Cassis Sauce for 12; Potato Salad with Fresh Pesto Dressing for 16; Brussels Sprouts with Red Pepper Butter for 24; Grilled Chicken and Vegetables Kebabs for 36; Ricotta, Mushroom, and Sun-Dried Tomato Strudel for 50. Fearless Cooking for Crowds acknowledges America’s growing appreciation for large-scale entertaining, and with every recipe shows how exciting, original, and delicious cooking for crowds can be.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The serious cook is always delighted to hear the words ''superb" and "delicious" or even an occasional "bravo," but the ultimate compliment received at any table is a question: "May I have a copy of your recipe?" Whether it's Cream-Filled Crêpes Flamed in Cointreau or Grilled Knockwursts with Honey Mustard, if your audience likes the dish well enough to ask for the recipe, then it's a success. Fearless Cooking for Company includes ten years' worth of Michele Evans' "most requested" recipes, more than 300 of them, and they are truly special. Most are her own, but there are also contributions from family, friends, and chefs in restaurants around the world who have generously shared their secrets. The recipes offer a wide range of choices for every course and every taste, from instant dishes made from fresh and some prepared foods to elaborate presentations that require time and totally fresh ingredients. There are special sections on cooking for crowds, with recipes and menus that serve 12 or 24 people any time of the year. All entrées in the book are accompanied by menu suggestions, and some basic recipes are included to remind the reader of important techniques, procedures, and timing. Organization is as important to the home cook as it is to the chef in the largest restaurant kitchen, and it is one of the critical keys to good cooking and elegant, anxiety-free entertaining. A chapter called Mise en Place—putting everything in its place—suggests ways of organizing the preparation of a recipe in the most efficient manner possible. Whether you entertain every night of the week or cook only when the mood strikes you, the recipes in Fearless Cooking for Company will become part of your own treasured collection—recipes that you will be asked for again and again and that you will pass on to others with pleasure.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Susan Wyler's indispensable classic is back in print--now better than ever, with more than a dozen new menus, over 70 new recipes, and a wealth of updated strategies The original edition of Cooking for a Crowd won great praise all around: Florence Fabricant named it one of the New York Times best books of the season. Perla Meyers, author of How to Peel a Peach, advised, "Keep this book as a reference whenever you are entertaining." And Rose Levy Berenbaum, author of The Cake Bible, declared, "She puts together the components of a dinner with the passion, perfection, and ease of a master painter. The game plans . . . enable any cook to impress without risk." This new edition builds on the premise of the original-that many a home cook can manage the occasional dinner party for 4 to 6, but when it comes to entertaining a crowd of 10 or more, the logistics become exponentially more complicated. Wyler's ingeniously user-friendly combination of creative menus, do-ahead game plans, and crowd-pleasing recipes makes it possible for any home cook to entertain on a large scale. Wyler has expanded the volume to include over 225 recipes and 35 menus for a variety of sizes and occasions-such as Tuscan Lunch for 12 to 16, Black and Orange Halloween Party for 24, even a Wedding Supper for 50. A perfect balance of inspiring and instructive, Cooking for a Crowd is a must-have for all home cooks who want to bring large groups of family and friends together at the table.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Daniel Duane was a good guy, but he wasn't what you might call domestic. Yet when he became a father, this avid outdoorsman was increasingly stuck at home, trying to do his part in the growing household. Inept at so many tasks associated with an infant daughter, he decided to take on dinner duty. He had a few tricks: pasta, soy-sauce-heavy stir-fry... actually, those were his only two tricks. So he cracked open one of Alice Waters's cookbooks, and started diligently cooking his way through it. When he was done with that, there were seven more Waters cookbooks, plus those by Tom Colicchio, Richard Olney, Thomas Keller... and then he was butchering whole animals in his cluttered kitchen. How to Cook Like a Man might be understood as the male version of Julia and Julia. But more than chronicling a commitment to a gimmick, it charts an organic journey and full-on obsession, exploring just what it means to be a provider and a father. Duane doesn't just learn how to cook like a man; he learns how to be one.
