Summary

The perfect recipes for covered dish parties—from The Cake Mix Doctor and author of American Cake and American Cookies. 
 
Potlucks and picnics, dinner parties and church socials, fundraisers, reunions, cookouts—it’s the busy age of shared meals, which means with every invitation comes the question: What can I bring? Anne Byrn, an inspired cook, problem solver, and bestselling author of The Cake Mix Doctor cookbook and other books with over 2.6 million copies in print, knows exactly how to answer the question. Cutting through menu block—a condition familiar to everyone who cooks—here are over two hundred delicious suggestions for crowd-pleasing food that’s designed to travel. 
 
There are finger foods, canapés, and dips, galore. Twenty-five surprising salads: White Corn Salad with Fresh Herb Vinaigrette, Papaya and Arugula Salad, Fresh Green Bean Salad with Crumbled Feta Vinaigrette, to name a few. Main dishes for a party, from Creole Chicken Spaghetti to White Bean and Spinach Lasagna. Desserts, and a full chapter of loaves and other gifts from the kitchen, including Deep Dish Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Cake. Each recipe comes with “Tote Notes” (how best to transport the dish), “Big Batch” (how to multiply the dish), and “When You Arrive” (how to put the finishing touches on the dish). Plus, there are “Grab & Gos”—super-quick recipes—for each section, etiquette tips for working in someone else’s kitchen, and a “Notes” area for each recipe, to jot down tips and log in when you made the dish and for what occasion, so you don’t repeat yourself.

    Epistenology - Wine as Experience

    We think we know how to appreciate wine—trained connoisseurs take dainty sips in sterile rooms and provide ratings based on objective knowledge and technical expertise. In Epistenology, Nicola Perullo vigorously challenges this approach, arguing that it is the enjoyment of drinking wine as an active and participatory experience that matters.Perullo argues that wine comes to life not in the abstract space of the professional tasting but in the real world of shared experiences; wines can change in these encounters, and drinkers along with them. Just as a winemaker is not simply a producer but a nurturer, a wine is fully known only through an encounter among a group of drinkers in a specific place and time. Wine is not an object to analyze but an experience to make, creatively opening up new perceptual possibilities for settings, cuisines, and companions.The result of more than twenty years of research and practical engagement, Epistenology presents a new paradigm for the enjoyment of wine and through it a philosophy based on participatory and relational knowledge. This model suggests a profound shift—not knowledge about but with wine. Interweaving philosophical arguments with personal reflections and literary examples, this book is a journey with wine that shows how it makes life more creative and free.
