An Invitation To Entertain


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 between. Her trademark has always been "Your party is our privilege," 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.


Elizabeth Stone has been involved in the catering and event planning business for more than twenty years. What started as a favor for a friend has blossomed into a multimillion-dollar event planning company, specializing in full-service staffed events. Elizabeth and The Stone Kitchen have received numerous event planning and community service awards. Her goal is to go beyond great food and wonderful service to create memorable entertaining experiences. Michael Hart's work has appeared in Communication Arts Photography Annual, Print's Regional Design Annual, the Art Director's Club of Houston Show, and is included in The World's Greatest Black and White Photography. A board member of The American Society of Magazine Photographers, Houston Chapter, he is also a member of The Stock Artists Alliance. The author and photographer of Biggio: The Final Game, he has been honored with numerous Addy Awards.

In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
