AT HOME BY STEVE POSES
More parties. Better. Easier. Everyone can learn to be a better home cook and a more relaxed host by drawing on the seasoned advice of a caterer and restaurateur who’s served over 20 million guests at legendary events. First published in 2009, At Home by Steve Poses: A Caterer's Guide to Cooking & Entertaining is more relevant than ever before as more people look to create higher quality meals in their own kitchens.
Stuffed with planning tips, menu ideas and worksheets to keep track of shopping needs and task timelines. Add in more than 500 recipes—all with a make-ahead component—and Poses’ mantra to have “more parties, better, easier” seems downright doable.
