Tasting Table's Cooking with Friends updates the classic menu cookbook for a new generation of heroic hosts and dinner party emcees.
No need to wake up at dawn and martyr yourself in the kitchen all day: These menus are designed to be made with a few gracious friends who arrive early enough to be your sous chefs. Sure, you still have to manage the invitations, order groceries, and hide that hamper in a closet, but crowdsourced cooking (and cleanup, if you're lucky) makes entertaining easier so you can do it more often.
In Tasting Table's Cooking with Friends readers will find recipes that cater to the busy people of today. This is a menu-based cookbook, but everything can also be cooked by itself. For example, there's a Friendsgiving menu with a killer One-Pan Cheddar Mac 'n' Cheese and a crazy delicious Hoisin BBQ glazed Turkey Breast. There's also a backyard shrimp boil menu, a vegetarian dinner for omnivores, and a meal of heavy apps before a big night out. No matter the occasion, Tasting Table has you covered.
This book of recipes and lists and instructions is also a freewheeling source of general inspiration. It will encourage readers to gather more often for unplanned antics with old friends and new prospects alike and to make countless memories of delicious meals enjoyed together.
