While most of us don't have Martha's resources (a big house, multiple sets of china and linens, collections galore to use for decoration, not to mention a staff to help prepare the food!), everyone can probably find something to take away from her latest book. The first three-fourths of the book is a series of menus illustrated with gorgeous photography of the food and the settings and the last fourth contains the recipes. Whether you're planning a breakfast, brunch, luncheon, garden party, holiday dinner or dinner party, there's a menu here for you. The recipe section includes photographed how-to sections for some of the preparations. The photographs and text describing the table settings and decoration provide tips to those of us who are a little artistically impaired, even if we don't have all the stuff Martha does! Fun to read, although toting it back and forth from the library threatened to put my back out!more
