You're All Invited
Margot's Recipes for EntertainingBook - 2012
Want to cook dinner for fifteen? Have fifty people for drinks and canapés? Feed your family comforting food at lunch time?Make an elegant dinner for eight? Transport quantities of food to a picnic so it doesn't spill and crumble?
In You're All Invited , Margot Henderson, who cooks for between 30 to 200 people every day, shows you how- using her panache as a caterer for Arnold & Henderson and restaurateur at London's Rochelle Canteen, and drawing on her family life with Fergus Henderson and their three children, she provides 130 easy and delicious recipes for all occasions.
There are ideas for breakfast that you can face making first thing in the morning (bacon buns, spicy eggs); recipes for lunch and supper whether it's delicious things on toast or warming soups and stews (chorizo and potato stew), or Sunday roasts with perfect gravy and vegetables for a lingering lunchtime spread.
Forthright and refreshing, Margot advises on how to give a drinks party with a Negroni roar - the crescendo a party reaches when everyone's happily drinking cocktails and eating canapés - and gives tips on feasting as well as packing for a picnic (the joy of Tupperware, the heaven of Scotch eggs) and making a seaside barbecue.
You're All Invited is all you need to make every meal an occasion to remember.
