From the cover: “This book has been planned mainly for busy people who cook for their own parties, with the accent throughout on informality and the creation of a gay, easy atmosphere.

In the fascinating pages that follow you are led into the secrets of how to prepare a wide range of attractive and appetizing dishes for all occasions — how to choose suitable wines that will enhance your Menus — and how to arrange flowers for the meal with simplicity and imagination.

The main part of the book is devoted to approximately 500 recipes. Each has been created to avoid elaborate preparations and to save as much of the washing-up as possible. All have been tested and re-tested for quality, flavour and accuracy.

The 45 Menus in the centre of the book are a guide to a great wealth of different types of hospitality, from carefree kitchen get-togethers to graciously-served meals enfamille, from television tray parties to romantic dinners by candlelight. Each Menu has its own choice of wines and a suggested flower arrangement.

Helen Cox, with Stuart McHugh on flowers and George Dowglass on wines, has written this complete guide to informal entertaining — one that should interest all those who wish to enjoy their own parties and at the same time tempt, stimulate and delight their guests.”
