Few cities entertain with the gusto of Houston, and at the heart of some
of the most lavish parties and delightful small dinners is The Stone
Kitchen. Now, founder Elizabeth Stone shares the magic combination of
recipes, menus, and entertainment expertise that make every event she
caters pure pleasure for both host and guest. When it comes to
entertaining on any scale, Elizabeth knows what works and what doesn't,
and she understands that every host or hostess has a different comfort
zone in the kitchen. Some want to create everything from scratch; some
want to have a caterer handle it all, and most fall somewhere in

and this lavishly illustrated entertaining handbook brings her respect
for hospitality to life. Now, in this indispensible volume, she shares
the hospitality wisdom of generations, and every reader will be able to
throw A-list parties with pleasure.
