You heard that right! This interview with Chef Brigitte Nguyen of the Cooking Channel is about how to throw a dinner party for eight – all for under $100! That even includes four bottles of wine! I wasn’t sure that it would be possible. I entertain a lot, and I am all about stretching my food dollars to feed my family healthy and delicious meals.
But when it comes to holiday entertaining everything gets stepped up a bit. The menu grows with the addition of appetizers, dessert, and wine. The table gets set a bit nicer with candles and a centerpiece. I do try to keep it simple, but of course we want to make it memorable. I love to have friends over for dinner – time gathering with family and friends is what life is all about.
This menu brought to you by Chef Brigitte Nguyen of the Cooking Channel is simply perfect for a holiday meal! I love the combination of fall flavors, the kaleidoscope of colors, the balance of light and indulgent, and of course the sweet bites to finish the meal.
