There are countless ways to entertain. Surrounded by great friends, in your kitchen, with the food coming straight out of the oven and onto plates. It could be more formally, at a sit-down birthday celebration for twenty-four. Or any of several memorable variations in between. Here are some starting points for your own inspiring meals:
1. A Simple Lunch
When: 12:30 pm
What: An easy, delicious midday feast with one or two great friends, either for business, pleasure, or something in between.
2. Quick and Easy Lunch Buffet
What: A wonderfully casual way to bring friends together (some who may not know one another) and mingle while sampling a wide showcase of tasty foods. Try to balance your buffet selection with a protein, a arb, vegetables, and grains! Cardinal rule: Never put fish and meat on the same buffet table. Surf and turf doesn’t work. If God wanted us to have surf and turf, he would have given cows claws and lobsters hooves!
3. Afternoon Tea (not to be confused with High Tea, below)
When: 3:00 or 3:30pm
What: The Duchess of Bedford came up with this little treat to stave off hunger pangs between lunch and dinner. Think elegant pastries, crumpets, scones,madeleines and finger sandwiches. Buy or bake a batch of scones to serve with clotted cream and preserves: or buy decadent cakes, tarts, and cookies from your favorite bakery.
4. High Tea
What: Originally created to satisfy English workers after a long day of labor, this is perfect if you’re meeting for a post-theater-matinee dinner. Try hearty tea served in a mug with heavier fare such as Welsh rabbit or a stew of lamb or poultry.
5. The Cocktail Party: Come for Drinks!
When: Cocktail parties generally take place from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
What: A cocktail party is oen of my favorite occasions- wonderfully old-fashioned, but with a modern update! To plan one, all you need are equal quantities of snappy cocktails, delicious food, good music, and colorful people.
6. The Dinner Party (my favorite activity of the day!)
When: 8:00pm or later. Set at guests at the table between 8:45 and 9:00pm after the cocktail hour, which is just that: one hour! Begin to seat people forty-five minutes after the first guests have arrived, which allows fifteen minutes for everyone to get settled.
What: At least a three-course meal, including dessert. The simpler the better. Use the best ingredients and do as little to them as possible.
7. Late-Night Dessert
When: After 10:00pm
What: Prepare a steaming pot of coffee, light some candles, and bring out a tray with four chocolate pots de crème from the refrigerator. Set up a bottle of dessert wine in an ice bucket, and you are set to go.
