In this delightful book that fuses cooking and entertaining with high fashion, Paola Caovilla transforms the mundane act of a cracking an egg or setting the table into an epicurean experience. And she doesn't leave anything out. From the dinner invitation to the menu, from the cocktails to the music, the author refines the art of entertaining through dozens of recipes, party planning ideas, creative table settings, decorating tips and more. Heres one: dispose of your aprons. What is sexier than a Dior blouse or Lagerfeld skirt sprinkled with flour? The author reminds us that a home-cooked meal prepared and presented lovingly can ease business rapports, bring friends closer together, and gratify the host as much as the guests.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
