Food with Friends


Sharing good food with friends is one of life's greatest pleasures. In Food With Friends, award-winning food writers Allan Campion and Michele Curtis take the hard work out of entertaining and give you delicious recipes, tips on planning, and menus suggestions for all styles of entertaining: from classic brunch or dinner to yum cha or Middle Eastern influenced cocktail parties. Whether you're making Sunday dinner for the family, having brunch with friends on a lazy Sunday, or selecting a cheese course to complete a special dinner party, Food with Friends will help you decide what, and how much, to cook, and leave your guests impressed. The first section of the book is devoted to planning basics: entertaining dos and don'ts; how much food to serve; setting the table and when to prepare what (which seems to trip so many of us up!).A chapter on planning menus teams recipes from the book into complete menus such as 'Moorish', 'Seasonal' and 'Asian spice' - each comprising three entrees, mains and desserts to mix and match as you wish. Further chapters contain over 120 recipes, organised by type of dish, and there is also a section on which wines to serve. Capturing the signature Campion and Curtis relaxed style of cooking and entertaining, Food with Friends allows hosts to expertly create impressive menus for any event - with minimum fuss.
