Perfect for people who are tired of dizzying preparations and unobtainable standards, this beautifully photographed cookbook is the ultimate tool for those who want to sit down with a few good friends and take the time to enjoy their company as much as the food. Small Gatherings is filled with easy, elegant menus for entertaining just two, four, or six. Arranged by season, the recipes take advantage of fresh, flavorful ingredients and include helpful make-ahead tips, so even beginners and the chronically busy can host delightful occasions.
