This week I will provide some great party tips that will enable you to be a guest at your own party. The first critical step is to get organized. So start by making a list. Make a list of the tools you need-glasses, forks, spoons, etc. This list becomes a checklist the day of the party when you begin to feel a bit more pressure and might forget some of these simple items. The next step is to consider the items that can be offered that do not require a lot of cooking. For example, fresh produce from the local Farmer’s Market can be ideal. Perhaps a bit of smoked fish, a medley of olives, cured meats and an array of cheese is perfect. Do you really need anything else for the party?
