What is a cooking party?

The October meeting: What Can I Bring? by Elizabeth Heiskell

From the description: It is usually the first question you ask after receiving an invitation to a gathering or event: "What Can I Bring?" Based on the popular monthly feature in Southern Living magazine, Elizabeth delivers more than 100 delicious recipes that are sure to please a  crowd that can all be prepared in advance and travel well. 

But let's not forget the most important question: What can I bring to my own table? This is a cookbook that offers answers whether you're looking for some new ideas for dinner or want to make Sunday brunch a more special event. Above all, these delicious dishes can be served straight from the heart, with no stress required.

Tasty Venues will have a limited number of copies available for purchase if you'd like to pick one up when you come for lunch, dinner, tea, or just to shop. 

Looking for Special Food for a Special Event? Look no further!

Bridal showers, graduation parties, anniversaries, birthdays, receptions...in our house or yours, we will make your event delicious! 
Call 813-381-4999 to get on our calendar.
