Come One, Come All: Tips for Holiday Cooking

Filed under: Authors, Cooking, MHS Author in the News, MHS press — Pamela McClanahan @ 10:13 am

Lynne Rossetto Kasper, well-known host of The Splendid Table, recommends our cookbook, Come One, Come All: Easy Entertaining with Seasonal Menus, by Star Tribune Taste editor, Lee Svitak Dean. Kasper writes, “Come One, Come All is comfort between two covers for all who love the idea of bringing friends and family together around the table, but rarely have the time and energy to pull it off. Dean clears the way with her usual smart shortcuts and dynamite recipes. . . . This is a keeper!”

Come One, Come AllHosting Thanksgiving at your house this year? It’s not too late to buy the cookbook, which has an approachable, tasty, step-by-step guide to cooking the grand meal. A game plan, if you will, that includes a chart of what can be done ahead. For instance, four days ahead of Thanksgiving (today!) you prepare the brine for your turkey and make the fabulous Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie for store-ahead freezing (one of Dean’s family favorites). Tomorrow you begin brining your turkey. And Wednesday, well, she has the list all ready for you, along with carefully tested recipes and cook’s notes for the feast.

Can’t get out until this weekend to buy the book? That’s okay. Dean has seasonal menu ideas for other friends-and-family gatherings, including a holiday cocktail party and a last-minute winter party (those last-minute get-togethers sometimes¬†end up being the best of the holiday gatherings!) Cheers!
