Celebrate with Party Food : Beautiful Food and Table Dressing Ideas by Tina Bester

Celebrate with Party Food is all about putting some swing into your entertainment style. Whether you're planning at-home drinks with sophisticated snacks or an al fresco picnic feast, it's about not being afraid to have fun pulling out all the stops. Why not throw a glamorous garden party or create an indulgent Friday supper for friends? High tea takes on a new twist on these pages and there are also cocktail recipes galore...As Tina Bester's previous books have shown, she believes that every gathering has the potential to be a sumptuous, food-fuelled occasion. In this, her third book, she illustrates this entertainment principle via a host of luscious images and recipes. Of course, in true Tina style, even the most glamorous of Celebrate with Party Food's edible offerings is also an easy-to-achieve one - from asparagus 'Twiglets' to phyllo-baked Camembert parcels, and from roasted duck breasts with red wine and chocolate glaze to decadent lemon tartlets. Celebrate with Party Food is about making the most of every foodie occasion without losing out on the enjoyment of it all. It harks back to an era when entertaining was always a big deal, but also features culinary creations that require a minimum of fuss. Complete with gorgeous imagery, table-setting suggestions and mouthwatering recipes for every occasion, Celebrate with Party Food is the inspiration solution for everyone who longs to be the perfect host.

About the Author

Tina Bester

Tina Bester doesn't mind if her pastry's wonky - in fact this self-proclaimed 'no rules girl' prefers it that way. At her restaurant Queen of Tarts, Tina has created a vintage-styled, playful escape from reality where you can order a slice of gooey chocolate cake for breakfast and nobody bats an eyelid. Bake reflects Tina's travels from a 'no bake' cook to a purveyor of home-baked treats made the old-fashioned way but with a Queen of Tarts modern twist.
