This review is from: In the Mood for Entertaining: Food for Every Occasion (Hardcover)
I was given this book as a present and I love it! Jo's relaxed style and warmth come through in this book. I would'nt say that the book is specifically for "entertaining" occasions, lots of recipes can be used day to day. The book is split into helpful chapters from casual suppers with friends to "themed" dinner parties. I like the way that Jo suggests menus to compliment each other along with wine suggestions. There are also fabulous photos that make you want to eat the food!
I've made a few of the dishes: scallops with smoky leeks, Italian lamb shanks, choc & mascapone tarts, fruity flapjacks, the recipes are pretty easy to follow and am looking forward to trying lots more - a definite winner!
