Martina McBride enjoys entertaining millions of fans on the road as one of country music's most beloved singers. But when she's not on tour, she turns that energy to hosting intimate groups of friends and family at home. In Around the Table, Martina shares her most inventive party ideas for all seasons. Complete with mouthwatering recipes and decor inspiration, this beautifully illustrated collection of culinary celebrations includes practical menu-planning advice and tips and tricks for the host.
Martina takes readers into her home to join in the fun, whether it's at a Red, White, and Blue Backyard Cookout, a Retro Valentine's Day Supper Club, or a night of Mistletoe and Martinis. Chock-full of personal anecdotes and memories, this delightful keepsake is infused with Martina's girl-next-door spirit and irresistible charm.
About the Author
Martina McBride, a Kansas native who made her debut on the charts in 1992, has earned a string of hits across twelve albums, including "Blessed," "Independence Day," "A Broken Wing," "Wild Angels," "Concrete Angel," and "I'm Gonna Love You Through It." To date she has a tie for the most Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year Awards with four wins, has been named Academy of Country Music Top Female Vocalist three times, and has been nominated for fourteen Grammy Awards. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband and three daughters.
Katherine Cobbs left her job at National Geographic for culinary school on the West Coast in order to combine her love of food with her passion for writing. For two decades, she has written and developed recipes for magazines and books, collaborating with James Beard Award winners, including Chef Frank Stitt on his two cookbooks, Frank Stitt's Southern Table and Frank Stitt's Bottega Favorita, and Chef Chris Hastings on The Hot and Hot Fish Club Cookbook. She also served as Chef Todd English's editor on Cooking in Everyday English. She resides in Birmingham, Alabama, with (like Martina) her husband, John, and three daughters.

I had no idea she was the “entertainer” she is – on and OFF the stage!
This cookbook is filled with delicious recipes and helpful entertaining tips. Martina’s entertaining tips and tricks are perfect for those who are just starting out entertaining – or those who have done it for years… I found the tips and tricks just what I needed to throw my first successful “Country Music Dinner Party” using the recipes from this cookbook. (Let’s just say – everything was eaten and recipes exchanged).
The book is also composed of delicious photographs of Martina and her family. This is really a “personal look” into the lives of Martina, her family and her cherished recipes.
Just a few of my favorites include Martina’s “Balsamic-Poppy Seed Dressing” (page 41), “Oven Roasted Vegetables” (page 47 and a perfect recipe for the beginnings of a hearty vegetable soup), “Panzanella” (page 67), “Hunter’s Chicken” (page 68), “Butternut Ravioli” (page 76), “Peaches with Lemon Shortbread” (page 97), “Peanut Butter Incredibles” (page 133), “Grilled Lemon Shrimp” (page 201) and “Salsa” (page 270).
I highly recommend this book for those who love simple, easy and delicious cooking – and to those who love Martina McBride. It’s a charming book and has given me a lot of inspiration for my future entertaining parties and gatherings…
Pros: has healthy dishes as well, packed with lots of recipes and photos, has something for every season
Cons: There was a special edition sold only at WMT.
