Summary, etc.:
Alex Hitz, "the very best host in the world" says the Wall Street Journal, shares more than 100 timeless, tried-and-true recipes for classic comfort foods to serve with his inimitable style of gracious entertaining. Having played host to the A-list and beau monde from Atlanta to Park Avenue to Beverly Hills, Alex Hitz is a consummate entertainer and bon vivant--who can really cook. Elegance, comfort, and wit (and always a little decadence) suffuse every detail of every delightful and delicious occasion. Defying diets and trends, Alex treats guests like family with rich, Southern-inspired food and the generous traditions of Southern hospitality. Conceived as full menus, each occasion offers recipes and tips for ultimate success, from his always-perfect-every-time Thanksgiving table and epic Boxing Day buffet to a bright Easter brunch and an intimate Valentine's Day supper. In addition to twelve expertly curated menus, Hitz provides can't-fail recipes for his essential dishes, classic recipes every confident cook should have in their back pocket, from perfect vinaigrettes and homemade mayonnaise to Bel-Air Onion Puffs, Risotto alla Milanese, To-Die-For Ale-Braised Brisket, and Caroline's Tipsy Ambrosia. Ever the raconteur, Hitz delivers common-sense rules--including for the art of being a guest, and what always or never to do as a thoughtful host--providing readers with the skills and confidence to establish their own signature style.
