Cooking for a Holiday Party
It can be exciting to decide to host a holiday party in your home, but it can also be an extremely stressful experience. One of those stressful aspects of party planning is, of course, the food. Sure, you can pay a lot for catering or party trays, but what if you want to do something a little more individual – and save some money at the same time?
Cooking for a Holiday Party is my guide to planning, buying, and preparing food for any large gathering. I’ve included a timeline for advance buying and prep, selections of cookbooks of great party snacks and dishes, as well as some sample menu ideas from parties I’ve prepared myself.
