Product Description


After 150 dinner parties, Mintz is well equipped to dish out advice...with good humour...with a thoughtful introduction by Sarah Polley (a friend of Mintz’s), lively illustrations by Steve Murray and several dinner party-appropriate recipes, the book is beautifully laid out in 10 chapters. (Maclean's 2013-05-23)

About the Author

Corey Mintz hosts dinner parties in his home every week for his popular Toronto Star column, "Fed." Before that he was a restaurant critic. And before that he worked for a living, as a cook. In the past two years, he has hosted 115 dinner parties. He began without napkins or stemware, serving wine out of Nutella jars. But after hosting politicians, artists, academics, monkeys, librarians, chefs, sommeliers, cops, lawyers, psychologists, a spy, a forager, a rabbi, a gambler, a drug addict, and a mayor, he’s become a pro.

Steve Murray is a columnist, cartoonist, and illustrator for the National Post. He has a weekly illustrated column called “Extremely Bad Advice.” His illustrations have appeared in the Globe and Mail, New York magazine, and Canadian Business magazine, as well as on He lives in Toronto.

I love Corey's FED and FEAST columns in the Toronto Star and I am forever thankful that there are so many useful tips for hosting a dinner party in this little gem of a book. It was too quick a read but thankfully I can keep on referring back to it for the tips and a mega dose of high-brow laugh-out-loud wit. Everyone on my gift list will be receiving a copy.

As a regular reader of Coreys newspaper Fed columns, I found his book to be useful, entertaining, and a real fun read - can hardly wait for his next!

Corey Mintz is an evil genius :) Excellent guide to hosting a dinner party. He is so absolutely entertaining you won't be able to read this without smiling and laughing from start to finish. Thank-you Corey! I want to buy this for everyone I know!

A really fun book, a bit tongue in cheek but also some practical advice. Would be a great host gift.
