Alex Hitz: The Art of the Host: Recipes and Rules for Flawless Entertaining
Having played host to the A-list and beau monde from Atlanta to Park Avenue to Beverly Hills, Alex Hitz is a consummate entertainer and bon vivant—who can really cook. Elegance, comfort, and wit (and always a little decadence) suffuse every detail of every delightful and delicious occasion. Defying diets and trends, Alex treats guests like family with rich, Southern-inspired food and the generous traditions of Southern hospitality. Conceived as full menus, each occasion offers recipes and tips for ultimate success, from his always- perfect-every-time Thanksgiving table and epic Boxing Day buffet to a bright Easter brunch and an intimate Valentine's Day supper. In addition to twelve expertly curated menus, Hitz provides can't-fail recipes for his essential dishes, classic recipes every confident cook should have in their back pocket.
