"Palm Beach Entertaining: Creating Occasions to Remember" by Annie Falk has something for everyone. For cooks, some good recipes from appetizers to desserts. 'Want to know how to make Badgley & Mischka's Cold Tomato Soup ? Now you can. Author James Patterson's Grandma's Killer Chocolate Cake ? The recipe is here. For people who like to entertain and for party planners, the "Tips and Ideas" sections give ideas on what drinks to serve, how to create beautiful table settings, how to make your guests comfortable, and much more. For the voyeurs, this book gives you a brief glimpse into the lifestyle of the rich and famous in Palm Beach. The photos by Jerry Rabinowitz are lush, beautiful, and plentiful; making this book a good coffee table book. The text is easy to read and entertaining and the book is well organized. With the holidays coming up, I ordered several to give as gifts. This is a great book to keep on hand for a hostess gift or housewarming gift also. 100% of the proceeds go to The Children's Home Society of Florida. CHS assists abused, neglected and abandoned children.

This is a gorgeous book, beautifully photographed. It seems like it's a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous. It's much more than that. Refreshingly it's a satisfying glimpse with thankfully good taste on display. You see everything here from the extravagant to the simplistic. Part of the proceeds go to a good cause for children, and we're reminded of the importance of entertaining. It's supposed to perform a role in our lives. At its heart, entertaining is to enjoy the pleasure of our family and friends. Anyone can do it, at any cost. A closer look and one begins to realize that it's also an art form to be appreciated. And there are also some great recipes to be found here. Easy useable ones, like the pistachio crusted Chilean Sea Bass. It's easier and less time consuming than it sounds. There are some great ideas here too like Kit's Pecan Pie which you can freeze. That could be a life saver should you have unexpected company. For those of us with children, there are some great ideas here too. One great bit of advice I found was that yes, children need structured play, but keep it simple. You don't need to hire a magician. I absolutely adore the simplicity of a table setting featured in the book that looks quite extravagant at first glance. A closer look reveals a simple idea that's so right in every way for a child's party. An arrangement of sunflowers and bouquet of lollipops on a blue table cloth with white chairs, followed by a great tip like, rent a bubble machine! Keep it simple and don't forget to have fun! Yes. That's what life's about. We should be enjoying the company of our friends and family, especially in these challenging times.Read more ›

I was a long ago member of CHS I love a book with proceeds going back to a charity, so I had to have this book. I love it I live in Boca so it is super fun to look at the rich and famous, although I think I would need a staff to comeplete so of the ideas in the book. But I adore how beautiful it was done

I really enjoyed this book. Annie Falk has authored a fabulous book about glamorous entertaining indoors but primarily outdoors. She's supplied beautiful photographs showing an appropriate mix of close-ups of food, service pieces, and place settings, mid-range photos of tables and seating and long-range photos of the beautiful landscapes. The recipes are generally large, but not particularly complicated. We had success "shrinking" a recipe for a taste test. It was delicious.

I purchased this book as I love reading about the style and homes of Palm Beach,Florida. I was delighted by the book ,with its elegant table settings and easy recipes. It is fun to have a glimpse into the rarefied world of Palm Beach and its inhabitants and the hints for entertaining are fun and helpful. It also makes a lovely gift for the person who loves to entertain at home.

Palm Beach Entertaining is truly unique. What other books take you into the lives of some of the most elite and let you create their own personal recipes for yourself? The recipes are easy to follow and the pictures are gorgeous. One of my favorite recipes is the individual key lime pies from the dinner with Kara and Steve Ross. What a wonderful book, Annie!

Bought it for a coffee table book. I thought there would be more pictures and history of the area. Most of the recipes are not things I would be willing to make.
