These pages also contain many recipes and menu ideas. One of my favorite passages is "Ten Great Assembled Desserts," which are tasty desserts made from store-bought ingredients, perfect for feeding a crowd. This book makes gatherings large and small seem fun and feasible and most importantly, it makes you want to throw a party!
In a world where etiquette and the art of making guests feel welcome is nearly lost, this book was refreshing.
The author provided practical tips that are helpful regardless of the hostess experience level.
What's a Hostess (Host) to Do by Susan Spungen is fun, interesting and well organized. The main topics printed in color on the contents page and the individual pages for each topic are color coded right margin makeing it easy to locate those portions of the book.
I'm one of those people who read cookbooks as if they were novels amd I'm enjoying this one. With a quick browse through I have picked up some helpful household - entertaining hints. I found the receipes to be interesting and will be using several this summer, some on the grill near our poolside cabana. The color photographs are useful because I always want to know before hand what the finished product should look like.
I think Ms. Spungen has a winner.
