For the Table

$35

From food stylist and editor Anna Stockwell, For the Table: Easy, Adaptable, Crowd-Pleasing Recipes is a toast to the art of the dinner party.

Hosting a dinner party is a special kind of occasion. You welcome old and new friends into your home and gather around the table. You put out platters of food prepared just for that table of people, passing them around until everyone’s had their fill. This sense of sharing and togetherness feeds more than just bellies. It is what helps us stay connected, form new relationships, and build lasting bonds with our chosen families. During socially distanced times, the perfect dinner party might have felt like a lost art, but in For the Table, food writer Anna Stockwell provides all the tools needed for bringing back the ritual of hosting memorable yet modern dinner parties. Menus include:

  • A Sheet-Pan Meatballs and Roasted Squash Dinner
  • A Spicy Tomatoey Fish and Charred Broccolini Salad Dinner
  • A Duck Breast and Bitter Orange Salad Dinner
  • A Whole Side of Salmon and Celery Fruit Salad for Dinner
  • A Quiche and Leeks Dinner You Might Want for Brunch

Stockwell has written a cookbook for a new way of entertaining that’s simpler, better, healthier, and more fun. Organized by season and full of helpful hosting advice, she provides accessible and modern menus; each is built around two large platters to pass around the table and includes suggestions for no-recipe side dishes. Dinner parties don’t have to be formal or fussy, or even a lot of work, to be celebratory and gratifying. This book teaches you how to plan and prepare great-tasting and impressive-looking menus that are easy to pull off, as well as offers expert advice on toasts, prep-ahead strategies, and tips on handling guest lists and dietary restrictions.

With its mix of innovative food presentation and old-fashioned, homestyle technique, For the Table is a testament to the art of the dinner party and looks forward to the festive dinner gatherings of the future.
