Sharing a meal …

There are often many of us around the table in the kitchen under the walnut tree. We bring out the extra chairs, and the air is filled with good conversation and laughter. Food, talk, wine and music. Those are the evenings that leave a lasting impression, and they generate an energy that lingers even during other, quieter moments.

An evening spent in the company of just a few good friends also leaves a warmth behind long after they’re gone. Getting together to share a meal is such an essential part of life. Sometimes the actual cooking provides a lovely opportunity for small talk, but when entertaining, it’s often convenient to have most of the food prepared in advance. It could be a hearty autumn stew, a spicy Indian curry, or perhaps roast chicken with white wine and oven-roasted vegetables. Or platters with assorted finger foods that are pleasing to both the eye and the palate, while still being relatively easy to whip up.

In this chapter we have assembled a few menu ideas for all kinds of occasions, picking recipes from different chapters throughout the book. You will find menu suggestions for last-minute dinners for unexpected guests, or standing buffets for large parties, an Indian feast, summer evenings by the barbecue and much more. There are so many opportunities to get together with friends and family, and we should make the most of them.
