SAUCY APRON'S MENTOR PROFILE
My Dinner Party Corner
Why I want to be mentor in this category:
Entertaining should be entertaining not intimidating.
What inspires me in this category:
I love to cook. Hate when I eat out with friends and feel like we could have done better at ours.
If you come for dinner you'll eat well and chances are you won't leave sober.
Biggest Lesson Learned:
Dinner Party meals shouldn't take all day. A frazzled host is a recipe for disaster. Easy meals, fresh produce and good wine.
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
Dad is a master griller. MIL is a cooking teacher. Apparently I'm a great student. Love Jamie Oliver and Julia Child. Cook cook and more cooking. Wife and mother of almost four under five.
Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
Experience. Still have not graduated to matching china. Never will. Have the award for fitting the most people around the smallest table. Highlights. The guests come back for more.
- If a guest takes a sip from the finger bowl, you should too. It's all about making people feel comfortable.
