RRP $50.00 Penguin Books

Entertaining has always been at the forefront of Ruth Pretty’s life. Whether your occasion is a celebration, a summer barbecue, a cosy winter fire-side meal, a posh affair or simply drinks and nibbles, you will find plenty of recipes to delight and impress your guests and create special memories in Ruth Pretty Entertains.
Ruth turned naturally to an entertaining theme for this her fifth and latest book. Her rationale … “There are so many occasions to celebrate. People who love good food embrace life and will find this a reason, as much as designated days, for festivity. Sharing food at a table is also sharing joie de vivre, bonhomie and spirituality. Raise a glass to celebrate life and be thankful that you have been given an entitlement to bountiful food.”

In her new collection of mouth-watering recipes, (just in time for Christmas entertaining), Ruth shares with us some of her favourite recipes to suit a variety of entertaining situations. Whether you are looking for interesting finger food ideas, never-fail baking treats or more substantial dishes, you are sure to find it in this cookbook, and with it at your fingertips, entertaining at home will become a pleasure.

A leading New Zealand chef, caterer, teacher, food columnist and author Ruth Pretty is well known for fresh, delicious, imaginative New Zealand cuisine. Her Ruth Pretty Catering and the associated Cooking School are based at Ruth’s rural property, Springfield, in Te Horo on the Kapiti Coast.
Since 1999 Ruth has published four successful cookbooks; most recently Ruth Pretty’s Favourite Recipes. In 2005 Ruth was inducted into the New Zealand Restaurant Association Hall of Fame for her devotion to serving and promoting high-quality food.
