A party is all about entertaining friends and family. There is nothing more enjoyable than cooking up a meal for family and friends.
However, for many entertaining at home can be a bit of a chore. Today's fast pace of life often prompts one to take the easy way out: order food from a restaurant. A perfectly good option, but we all know, a bit of a compromise on the real thing: entertaining at home with all the personal care that goes into a home-cooked meal, served in the comfort of one's own home.
Colour, texture, variety, taste, and presentation all play a part in one's selection of the best menu to put together for any occasion, but nothing can replace the personal touch.
In The Party Food Cookbook I have introduced you to a mouth-watering selection of Indian and international dishes. Wow your guests with refreshing Virgin Pina Colada, crunchy Sichuan Vegetable Fingers, Smoked Chicken and Fruit Salad, spicy Fish Tikka Achaari, silky smooth Paneer Kaliya and luscious Kesari Phirni, to name a few.
Remember, the simplest dish can be made special and elegant not only by the presentation, but also by the warmth with which it is offered.
