This is a beautiful, thoughtfully compiled cookbook with some of the favorites from Nordstrom's cafes, as well as perfect recipes for informal gatherings at home. The recipes are relatively straightforward and the instructions are clear. Best of all are the full-page photos -- definitely a treat for foodies who value beautiful food photography printed on deluxe, heavy paper. The only downside is the price (why I didn't award five stars) -- but this would be a great gift for the chef who is looking for new inspirations.

Don't pay over 25 bucks for this book. It's still on sale at Nordstrom stores.

I absolutely love this cook book. It has wonderful photos and divine recipes. This book has definitely made it to being part of my staple shelf collection of cookbooks. Its not one of those mediocre cookbooks where you only use one or two recipes. Honestly every recipe thus far has been sensational. The recipe for "Sherry's Pecans" is out of this world and we've made them at least 5 times in the last few months. The meat recipes in the main courses section are unique and delicious. I do rate this book slightly below the other nordstrom "Friends and Family" cookbook but that is only because it doesn't have the same amount of recipes and extras as that one. However it is still an excellent addition to any shelf.

I've been going to the Nordstrom cafes located in the stores for years and enjoying the food there very much. Lately I had been wondering if I could get the recipes for some of the dishes (like their amazing chipotle-lime vinaigrette dressing) and as I was walking out of the cafe yesterday I noticed the display of these cookbooks for sale!! I opened up the salad section and there was my recipe for the chipotle lime vinaigrette!! There are lots of wonderful recipes in this book. Divided into appetizers (tomato and goat cheese crepes sounds like a must-try), beverages (Lime-mint mojito cooler anyone?), salads, soups, main courses, grill, pot luck, sides and of course desserts. Some recipes sound like they are for the more advanced cook but they all sound so delicious that it makes amateurs like me want to learn and kick it up a level anyway! I will be trying many of these recipes very soon. I was so glad I found this book. It is not out of print by the way. The stores do carry it also for far far less.

I have purchased all of the Nordstrom cookbooks (from the store) and have enjoyed cooking through them. I alway come back to the Entertaining at Home - it has a great blend of recipes for different palates and skill level. The introductions the chefs' write to the recipes are charming, and make you feel like you are 'in' on a secret. The recipes are well written and accurate with prep/cook time (a huge plus!), I can't count the number of times I have given recipes from this book out. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Love all the Nordstrom Cookbooks!! Loved the New Orleans Seafood Gumbo! What a treat and my dinner party all loved the meal. The Friends and Family Cookbook is also wonderful. A must for people who enjoy cooking.

No the book didn't meet my expectations . It was sold as used in good condition .... HOWEVER .... There were a number of pages that had been razor cut out of the book. Looks like someone took the recipes they wanted then returned the book . Sadly ... They are the same recipes I would have wanted. Disappointed ......

I love the Nordstrom cookbooks. I am having trouble with Sylvia's Apple Bread recipe and trying to adjust the ingredients for high altitude baking. We live at an altitude of almost 5,600 feet. Any suggestions?
