A GENTLEMAN ENTERTAINS
A GUIDE TO MAKING MEMORABLE OCCASION HAPPEN
You’ve scaled Mt. Everest, performed open-heart surgery, designed a skyscraper, and argued a case before the Supreme Court. But have you ever invited seven friends into your home to enjoy a meal you’ve prepared yourself? Like any new challenge, you can feel at ease if you understand the situation and are prepared. Practical and unpretentious, A Gentleman Entertains reveals essential preparations to take before entertaining, ideas for twelve specific parties complete with a game plan and foolproof recipes, hundreds of tips and suggestions to make your guests think you know what you are doing, and stress-relieving hints for disaster control when things go wrong. Whether throwing a cocktail party for your clients or coworkers a Super Bowl party, a romantic dinner for two, or entertaining your family for a special meal, A Gentleman Entertains will take the guesswork and uncertainty out of entertaining plans and turn an ordinary get-together into a memorable event.
