Product Description


Larry Cox, Tucson Citizen/King Features
“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.”

If you LOVE Lisa Vanderpump then you will LOVE this book. The book is exactly like her, elegant but practical! I have actually tried her recipes and my incredibly picky husband enjoyed them (which was the best surprise of all). For someone who lives such a great life, its nice to get advice on how to be a little more glamorous!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but somewhat disappointing Nov. 9 2011
By Max12 - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a lovely collection of stories of Lisa's life, recipes, and tips on entertaining. It has a little bit of everything. I am a big fan of Lisa's style and was disappointed at the lack of pictures depicting her tips in her book in areas such as flower arranging, plating and staging of food etc. I think she sets beautiful tablescapes and gorgeous floral arranagements, but the photos in the book were what I would consider to be glamour shots of Lisa looking beautiful (of course :)), She was the focal point vs helping me garner ideas on how to create table settings or entertain in the Vanderpump style. Some pictures are included of her recipes. I would recommend this book to any Lisa fan, but I am not sure how helpful the book would be to someone not familar with Lisa and her featured style on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills if one is solely looking for an informative book on entertaining. However, her life stories and advice are charming.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the most beautiful book. Dec 29 2011
By Elaine - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lisa Vanderpump is my absolute favorite housewife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I love her elegance, her Brit, her sense of fair play and her whole character. She is so classy and so beautiful. The book is a feast for the eyes and the recipes sound wonderful but I have not had a chance to try them yet. I am still eating left-overs from Christmas. However, this is not a cook book you will want to get splashed on in the kitchen. I will copy the recipe page and cook from it. I love her tid-bits on her life and the stories are interesting, certainly a far cry from most of our lives, but what fun! Any Lisa fan will certainly be in love with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars November 8th Book Signing *Simply Divine* Nov. 8 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Lisa "Vanderfabulous" at her book signing. She looked absolutely gorgeous. Her daughter and Gigi accompanied her. They were all very warm and nice despite me arriving 8 mins before it was over. The book is well written and nicely done. It's filled with TONS of beautiful pictures. If you are a true fan, then you will NOT be disappointed! It's done in true Vanderpump style with amazing notes and recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy! Dec 15 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Bought this book because I wanted tips on how to employ small touches to make a more beautiful home. We live a casual lifestyle, but through this book I realized that presentation of even a couple of cups of coffee can make a real difference when presented on a silver tray. These are the little things that make "everydays" seem like "special days". Her recipes sound delicious also, and can't wait to try most of them. Of course the pictures are gorgeous...just wish there were more of them. That would be about my only complaint. The pictures of darling Giggy were that little guy!!!
