In addition to specific chapters on salads, vegetables, meat, seafood, and desserts, Narlock includes sample party menus accompanied by preparation plans, as well as tips on buying and serving wine, planning and executing entire menus, sample table settings and presentation ideas, and more. Instead of languishing in a culinary quandary this holiday, consider flavourful pairings like Asparagus with Melted Brie served with sauvignon blanc or Duck and Spinach Empanadas with Persimmon Chutney complemented by a glass of pinot noir.
Lori Lyn Narlock is the author of more than 10 cookbooks, and her writing appears in "Fine Cooking," the "San Francisco Chronicle," and the "San Francisco Examiner" magazine. She lives in Napa Valley, Calif.
