I personally encourage cooking at home with fresh seasonal ingredients and making dining a hands-on experience that promotes togetherness with friends and family around the table. In Cook the Part you are part of a team to make this happen while having fun and enjoying many themed recipes Karin Eastham has shared with you. Karin has further organized the entire culinary event for you. Whether you are a host or guest, relax and "cook the part"!
