'Tis the season to eat drink, and be merry. No one knows how to celebrate the holidays better than Mary Engelbreit. In this special holiday cookbook, Mary brings together the best recipes to make your holiday cooking special. Beginning with Thanksgiving and continuing through the celebration of New Year's Day, you can count on this book to provide you with the most interesting holiday menu, complete with tips on entertaining "the Mary Engelbreit way." Cooks will find recipes ranging from the simple, like "Spiced or Curried Nuts," to the extravagant "Tiny Potato Nests with creme Fraiche and Caviar." International dishes mix easily alongside strictly American fare. Cooks will be delighted to find recipes especially for Kwanzaa, suggestions for an Italian Seafood Salad for Christmas Eve, a New Year's Day "Hoppin' John," and even a mincemeat tartlet for the doubters among us. The overall result: a wonderful blend of the best dishes with a decidedly international flavor. Appoint yourself the Queen of Holiday Cooking with this must-have collection.
