BLURB/FLYLEAF: In this warm and personal book, internationally known designer Lee Bailey reveals his secrets of weekend entertaining. Like the fresh, simple designs for which he is known, a Bailey weekend is easy, relaxed, and uncomplicated. Weekends, after all, are a time when people want to enjoy themselves, and Lee Bailey shows how to cook and entertain for friends with style - and a minimum of fuss. Picnics at the beach and under the trees; lunches by the pool and in a meadow; dinners on the porch, under an arbor, or by firelight all illustrate Bailey's unique method of cooking for company, taking advantage of fresh foods and seasonal produce.
Bailey's memories of country picnics and church suppers in his native Louisiana have influenced his easy menus, which reflect Southern regional cuisine. Chicken pot pie, skillet corn bread, barbecued veal, carrot custard, and blackberry cobbler with fresh cream are just a few of the more than one hundred luscious recipes included in this book.
Lee Bailey's Country Weekends will inspire and delight anyone who has a home in the country or who just wants to enjoy good country food.
