Kate Spade New York: All in Good Taste
|Author:||kate spade new york|
The third book with kate spade new york, all in good taste is a charming entertaining guide to throwing chic, stylish get-togethers. The culture of entertaining is just as important as the food and drinks you serve, the flowers on your table and the music on your speakers; all in good taste sends rigid rules out the door and invites in unpretentious ideas that are easy, festive, and authentic, always with an air of deliberate polish. Filled with how-to's, personal essays, anecdotes, menus, tips, recipes and a liberal dash of style, all in good taste will transform you into the hostess everyone wants an invitation from. The book covers all of the essential lost arts--how to shuck an oyster, curating a stellar guest list, dinner-table topics, cocktails in the city--right alongside modern conundrums like food photo etiquette and innovations like serving pot pies in teacups. Whether you entertain a little or a lot, or just love being the person everyone wants to sit next to at dinner, all in good taste is the modern classic you'll treasure and dog-ear for years.
kate spade began in 1993, when Kate Brosnahan, a former accessories editor at Mademoiselle, set out to design the sleek, utilitarian handbag she'd been craving for years but hadn't been able to find. Over time, the brand expanded to include handbags, accessories, jewellry, shoes, apparel, eyewear, hosiery, tabletop, paper and fragrance. In 2007, kate spade turned the reins to Liz Claiborne, Inc. Deborah Lloyd, formerly of Banana Republic and Burberry, took the helm as president and chief creative officer with an aim to broaden the line while honoring the brand's rich history.
