For each season Brennan offers four to five complete menus with a tantalizing array of starters, finger foods, entrees, and desserts. In addition to 90 recipes, Gather includes decorating and cooking tips for setting the mood and ideas for saving time. A Book Club Buffet, Movie Night, and A Wedding to Remember are some of the many gather opportunities, each with its custom menu-in this inspiring book.
