“Lisa knows a thing or three about the art of entertaining and she shares that knowledge in a splashy, smart new book…Cooking, she claims, should never be a chore since preparing food is a gift you give to people you love. She adds that fixing a cozy and romantic dinner is one of the sexiest things you can do. To help, she includes more than 75 easy-to-prepare recipes. This book is sassy, accessible, and informative. Beautifully illustrated, Simply Divine is as lively as Lisa Vanderpump herself, and presents a multitude of ways to personalize your gatherings with easy, elegant, and cost-smart entertaining. Her recipe for English Sticky Toffee Pudding is almost in itself worth the price of this dandy book.”

In my opinion, this book ranks high on my entertaining book scale; right up there with Martha Stewart's Entertaining, Phyllis Hoffman's Entertaining Touch and Gracious Tables, Letitia Baldridge's In the Kennedy Style and Paul Burrell's In the Royal Manner. I would recommend all 6 of these publications to anyone yearning and willing to learn the art of entertaining, cooking and setting the table. There are far too many publications out there that junk up the table with so-called "tablescapes" that one can't see where to put the food. These books teach the reader how to entertain in an elegant yet inexpensive manner. And all remind me of my beloved Auntie, who entertained in the same way.
The only wish I have is for Lisa to come to Montana for a book signing!
