I have stacks of cookbooks that I love and another stack of entertaining and decorating books that I reference.
This exquisite, inexpensive book has all that in one. Love it for myself but am also using it for gifts!

HASH(0xa10e7b94) out of 5 stars Cute book and nice pictures Oct. 20 2010

Drink recipes are pretty good but think the food recipes could be better. Best part of the book is the photographs so maybe good coffee table book.

HASH(0xa10e7ac8) out of 5 stars Excerpted from my June 2010 review in The National Barbecue News July 27 2010
By Doug Mosley - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Speaking of those summertime parties, here's a book that is sure to draw interest from anyone who enjoys whiling away a relaxed afternoon or evening on an old-fashioned porch. That's exactly the concept of "Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining" by Denise Gee ($16.95, Chronicle, 144 pp.).

Even though the basics of this book are cocktails, it goes the extra mile in weaving its story of relaxing on the porch. This one will have you swaying back and forth in your chair as if you were in an old rocker as you turn the pages. I really enjoyed the interesting sidebars that accompany each recipe and the author goes into extra detail in setting the scene for these outings with hints on planning, appetizers, décor and more.

HASH(0xa10e7768) out of 5 stars Not what I thought I was getting July 15 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is probably my fault for not reading the description better before ordering, but this is mainly a "how to make mixed drinks" book with a few recipes for food in the back. I was expecting a lot more ideas for parties, like decorating, etc., and more recipes for party food.
