Dinner parties: Then and Now

I completely agree with this article by Marilyn Krause about the shift from a formal dinner party to a more casual affair..

"Among the current trends is a move away from multi-course dinner, to one-dish meals, hosting lunch or brunch instead of dinner and purchasing a portion of the meal instead of making everything from scratch.

Let's face it - the aim really is to catch up with new or old friends and share some quality time together in a setting where you are not rushed..

"Simple, easy, casual. It's not unusual for guests to gather in the kitchen nibbling hors d'oeuvres while the cook finishes the entreƩ."
