“Come Over…”

Whether you’re a beginner looking for simple, impressive recipes to feed friends and family, or a seasoned host hoping to inject your repertoire with stylish, interesting ideas, you’ll find all you need in Dinner & Party.

Rose’s stance on entertaining is that the cook shouldn’t be banished to the kitchen; cooking for guests needn’t be fussy or hard to juggle, but instead made up of dishes – some classics, some novel – that can be prepared in advance, dressed up to impress last minute and enjoyed by everyone. Practicality is central to a book updating the etiquette for entertaining in our times.

With this in mind, Part 1: Dinner showcases easy options for every course, all alongside thoughtful advice about how to source ingredients, when to begin preparation and how to serve. Meanwhile, Part 2: Party provides tried and tested catering ideas for larger groups, from indoor picnics, to standing parties and Christmas dinners.

With sample menus, including an innovative guide to putting the right dishes together through the seasons, this is the friendly, practical guide to making entertaining easy in the 21st century, bringing everyone together.


Beautiful, simple and practical recipes so you may enjoy one of the great pleasures of life: cooking for friends and family.

Now here's a treat. Rose Prince has sent me a copy of her new cookbook and it looks glorious.

Along with many others I'm really bad at working out how much to cook when I'm catering for more than 10 people. Rose Prince offers dinner menus for fewer than that number but, especially in the run-up to Christmas, this book will prove its worth for the party menus that cater from anything from 20 to 60 guests. Prince's food is real and achievable; she has her own style that feels very English, although she takes ingredients and influences from all over the world.
