"Entertaining is my main pleasure, my forte," James Beard wrote in the original introduction to this book. Menus For Entertaining, first published in 1965, proved to be one of James Beard's most popular cookbooks. It showed off his flair for putting together innovative meals for a wide range of occasions. Although it is no longer possible to learn from the great master in person, many of the recipes in this book come from his cooking classes.
