In this exquisite and very personal book, Martha Stewart
welcomes you into her world, where she entertains in the
expressive and beautiful style that she has made so famous.
Whether a simple blueberry breakfast on a Sunday morning in
Maine or a more lavish holiday dinner at Bedford, each of
the gatherings is equally memorable, for what Martha
cherishes above all is spending time and sharing delicious
food with her family and friends.
“A meal of substantial finger foods with ingenious
cocktails, a sit-down formal dinner, a buffet supper, or
something more relaxed such as a backyard barbecue—each is a
welcome and inviting way to entertain,” writes Martha.
Featuring elegant and casual affairs held throughout the
year and a diverse collection of enticing recipes, Martha’s
Entertaining shows us—in the broadest and most lovely
fashion—what it really means to entertain and host today.
From an afternoon Easter egg hunt for children to a festive
Halloween dinner held inside her horse stable; from a
sophisticated cocktail party on a friend’s yacht in New York
Harbor to a spring garden fête amid the most glorious beds
of peonies, Martha’s parties offer a glimpse inside her
beautiful homes. Each is unforgettable and endlessly inspiring.
All of the events feature menus and stories for dreaming and
planning, as well as delicious yet approachable recipes:
Tomato and Gruyère Toasts, Mini Crab Cakes with Tarragon
Tartar Sauce, Tiny Tuna Burgers, Leek and Porcini Risotto,
Wild-Mushroom Lasagna, Braised Short Ribs, Roast Turkey
Breast with Sage Butter, Rhubarb Crumbles, Blueberry Jam
Tartlets, and Chocolate Honey Ice Cream with Butterscotch
Sauce, plus some of Martha’s favorite drinks, including
Pomegranate Cosmopolitans and Honeydew Mojitos. Mix and
match the recipes to create your own distinctive occasion.
Set among Martha’s dining rooms, kitchens, gardens, and
patios, this is her most intimate book yet, a new classic
for hosts and home cooks of every generation.
