A Dinner Party Mission

Kale salad ingredients
The mission of Dinner Party Atelier is to serve as a resource, test kitchen, and inspiration to those who are seeking to master the art of throwing a dinner party, and throw them often. Dinner Party Atelier is a workshop in this social, edible art form that will take the guesswork out of menu planning and help you become comfortable entertaining at home with ease, grace, and confidence. This atelier exists to equip readers with:
  • full menu plans using in-season ingredients
  • perfect wine or cocktail pairings to complement the meal
  • tricks for planning ahead, minimizing last-minute preparation (but also how to make the most of last-minute prep)
  • methods to overcome any barriers, from fear of cooking to preparing your living space for entertaining
  • an understanding of the benefits of hosting regular dinner parties (and there are many, including some that may surprise…)
It’s time to revive the art of the Dinner Party. We do hope you will join us on this journey.
