Planning dinner parties can be daunting especially for those who are not used to going over every little detail of preparation. Author and Chef Garrett Mc Govern lends a helping hand as he shares Simple Dinner Party Recipes that will make any celebration a success. He will help readers create specious dishes that not only tempt the eyes but also satisfy taste buds.

According to the author, “You taste with your eyes first, so it must have attractive colours and presentation. After that it is down to a good balance of flavours.” As a chef, he has worked in the kitchens for 20 years, training in different regimes, cultures, food preparation and cooking skills and excellent attention to detail—which is the inspiration behind Simple Dinner Party Recipes. These appetizing recipes reflect the well-tried basic rules of cooking and have the common root of classical methods, but one can still create his or her own personality on the plate. Such is the essence of a dinner party.

Simple Dinner Party Recipes is the culmination of the ideas and concepts that the author learnt and created during years of training and acquiring cookery knowledge. With this cookbook, he hopes readers will whip up an enthusiasm for food and lose their inhibitions as they cook up a storm. Using these recipes as a guideline, they will eventually develop a passion for cooking and be confident in hosting a successful dinner party.
