TITLE: MENUS FOR ENTERTAINING: 72 PARTIES & 400 RECIPES FOR THE GOOD COOK & HOSTESS

AUTHOR: Juliette Elkon & Elaine Ross

PUBLISHER, COPYRIGHT INFO: Hastings House, 1960

DESCRIPTION: Hardcover with dust jacket, 6 1/4" x 9 1/2", 288 pp.

BLURB/FLYLEAF: A unique book devoted to the twin arts of hospitality and good cooking. The authors have planned party menus to cover every eventuality from a supper for two to an open house for 100 or more.

They solve with imagination and good sense the questions of what to serve at a formal dinner or a casual summer luncheon, at a cocktail party or a wedding breakfast, at a barbecue or a New Year's Eve buffet. The recipe for each dish is given with the menu, and an introduction to each party explains what can be done ahead, how much last-minute work to count on - how, in short, to be both cook and gracious hostess. The menus further include suggestions for beverages or appropriate wines.

From their professional experience as "Cuisine Consultants," and in teaching and testing from backgrounds both American and European, and simply through their own enthusiasm for cooking and entertaining at home, the authors have accumulated ideas and recipes of notable originality. Their book tackles the hostess's problem of how to give a party with a sharp eye for practicality, a sense of humor, and delightful good taste. It provides new ideas for experts or for formal occasions without neglecting the needs of modest households and inexperienced cooks. An efficient classified index contrives, also, to make this a fascinating book for creating menus of your own.

CONDITION BOOK: Very Good+, with tight and square binding, clean and bright pages.

CONDITION DUST JACKET: Good, with heavy overall shelf wear, rips/chips/tears, creasing, rubbing/scuffing.
