The hard cover Ritz Carlton Cook Book & Guide To Home Entertaining. The book is dated 1968. The elegance, sophistication, and gourmet pleasures characteristic of the famous Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston are described in this handsome volume, which abounds in practical advice for the host and hostess who entertain at home with little or no professional help. More than three hundred of the famous Ritz Hotel recipes have been translated into home recipes accompanied by detailed suggestions for preparing them easily and serving them perfectly. Here is valuable counsel on how to prepare the simplest appetizers, the richest pastry creams, and everything that might possibly come between. And from the Ritz wine experts comes the sum of their knowledge and their wide experience in choosing and serving wines and spirits to complement both simple and elaborate recipes.
There is a great deal more to entertaining than just following recipes, however, and the Ritz-Carlton Cook Book and Guide to Home Entertaining discusses and advises on ways to give successful cocktail parties (from small to large), dinner parties, luncheons and suppers (buffet or formal), brunches, picnics, and even after-the-game suppers for teen-agers. Georgette de Lattre's illustrations are as elegant and charming as the Ritz-Carlton itself. Indeed, these drawings underscore the worldwide "Ritz mystique" which began when Edward VII described Cesar Ritz as the "hotel keeper to kings and king of hotel keepers." Although the kingly lavishness of Edwardian entertainment belongs to another age. The Ritz-Carlton Cook Book and Guide to Home Entertaining can make each host a king at home and each hostess a queen.
