My Review: This is a simple but detail oriented cookbook with 13 whole menus for different social occasions. I was very impressed with the layout. There are grocery lists for each menu and instructions for the dishes and extras like music options to play while entertaining. There is a wide variety of social settings to pick from including boy and girl birthday parties. My stepfather likes LSU football and entertaining so I will be loaning this book to him next. Recommended for those who like to entertain and the ones who want to learn. :)
