Blog Anniversary Party: Memorable Recipes Cookbook Giveaway (Closed)


Welcome back to the Blog Anniversary Party! Today we have more good food, thanks to my friends at Andrews McMeel Publishing.

The most important lesson I've learned about entertaining is that it's about creating an experience for your guests, creating a memory for all to share.  It does not have to involve the most elaborate dishes, expensive ingredients, hippest table setting, or most highly rated wines.  All these elements may embellish your dinner party or luncheon with panache--and it is fun to splurge now and again--but they are not the starting points for creating a memorable time together.
(excerpt from Memorable Recipes)
RenĂ©e Behnke, president emeritus of the popular kitchenware retail chain Sur La Table, loves to entertain. She’s been doing it famously for decades, and in Memorable Recipes: To Share with Family and Friends she shares her passion for food, friends, and travel through superb recipes, sound advice, and her extraordinary flair for creating wonderful but easy meals. Memorable Recipes is all about the delight of cooking delicious foods, serving them stylishly, and enjoying them with loved ones around a vibrant table.

Interested?  You can read an excerpt and find purchasing links here

I haven't read this book, but the photographs look beautiful and the recipes delicious.  This recipe for Oaxacan Tortilla Soup with Roasted Poblanos looks amazing!  And thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing, one of you will win a copy!
