Top Customer Reviews
The country homes, rooms, and outdoor views pictured on every page are really spectacular, but it is the food photos that really grabbed me. The arrangement of cheeses and veggies, soups and salads, meats and desserts on the serving platters, the linens and tableware, the simple but artful floral arrangements are perfectly designed and coordinated, but look casual and hopefully easy enough to imitate. The writing is also very good, and offers personal insight into the spirit of country entertaining.
Many of the recipes appear to be within my cooking capabilities. I plan to try several of them. It seems as if fresh locally-grown produce and meats are a good part of the country dining experience, so I’ll need to find a semi-urban venue for this purchase. Joan and Abby have given me ideas and inspiration.
