Notes about Recipes in this book

  • German potato salad

    • Partyof7 on August 15, 2022

      Delicious! I used Dijon as I was out of whole grain mustard. With the bacon and fresh potatoes it was a perfect side to a grilled ribeye.

  • Albóndigas en salsa de almendras

    • Fyretigger on October 01, 2022

      These are truly wonderful! Rich and flavorful with a nice brightness from the white wine and sherry vinegar. They are also pretty quick to make.

Turn having people over into a casual affair—and make it look good, too. Inspirational but achievable boards packed with ideas you can make or buy.

These days, a grazing board is so much more than just cheese and cured meat—it’s an interactive and low-key yet elegant way of presenting food. Show off your effortless entertaining style with showstopping conversation-starting spreads that are sure to impress your guests but give you the flexibility to make or buy components as you choose.

Guests can shake up their own popcorn with a Movie Night Board complete with individual paper bags and a variety of sprinkle-on flavorings (ranging from Garlic-Herb to ramen seasoning) plus a DIY soda fountain with seltzer and simple syrups. Or, create a low-lift Tapas Board by making our foolproof Spanish Tortilla and adding store-bought cheeses, olives, and tinned fish.
