About the Recipe: I chose this recipe because it feeds a festive group. Everyone always wants this recipe and I like having one of the star dishes at a tailgate party, a neighborhood potluck, or a backyard BBQ.
About the Chef: I love entertaining. Lots of lists and advanced preparation make things easy. Eight to 18 is my favorite number of guests. I enjoy a version of sit-down dinners with a partial buffet. I also like using different areas of my condo for different courses. Patios make great bars, family rooms for appetizers, dining rooms for dinner, and living rooms for dessert. Colorful food presentations plus great friends equals a wonderful evening.
