Publishers Text

Entertaining is my main pleasure, my forte, James Beard wrote in the original introduction to this book. Menus For Entertaining, first published in 1965, proved to be one of James Beard's most popular cookbooks and showed off his flair for putting together innovative meals for a wide range of occasions. Although it is no longer possible to learn from the great master in person, many of the recipes within come from his cooking classes, and it is as close as we can come to being graced with the great man's presence and expertise.


With chapters on Breakfasts (early and late); Luncheons (informal, formal, summer); Dinners (informal, formal, easy to prepare, to prepare in advance, summer); Buffets (luncheon, dinner, supper); Cocktail Parties (large, small); Entertaining Outdoors (indoor-outdoor cooking, picnics); Celebrations; Basic Recipes; A Guide to Wines; A Guide to Aperitifs; and A Guide to Liqueurs, Menus For Entertaining is truly the only book you'll need to entertain. He offers suggestions for wines with each meal, and is a soothing, entertaining guide to the nuances and the nitty-gritty of entertaining.
