More and more people are returning to the dinner table to rediscover the comforts of home through the pleasure of relaxed entertaining with friends and family.

As a bonus, two large sections of inspiring menu suggestions offer tempting possibilities for everyday dinners, special occasions, and theme ideas. Plan-ahead tips accompany every recipe to make entertaining truly effortless.
