Partying with Rachael
Rachael Ray, that one-woman conglomerate and super-popular force of nature, does the numbers in her latest, Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8. In most cookbooks the recipes are for four or six, but Rachael knows that our busy lives are filled with uncertainties and that cutting recipes down or doubling and tripling them can be unnerving and disappointing. So, this ever-practical cook has come up with 100 different menus for her signature 30-minute meals designed to suit the number of folks at your table, be that 2, 4, 6 or 8. Each menu has a game plan that keeps you on track and each has a theme from an Aren't We Fancy? Supper for two with cognac-sauced steaks to Jazz Fest for a foursome with muffuletta salad and shrimp po' boys, a Movie Marathon for six featuring three kinds of pizza and a Belly Up to Brunch for eight designed around Heavenly Angel Hair Pasta. So, whether you're dining ˆ deux or creating for a crowd, Rachael Ray will make your day.
