Holiday Entertaining Guide 2012
First things first: The holidays and the entertaining that goes along with them should be fun for your guests AND for you. There's no bigger buzzkill than a stressed out host clanging pans and screaming at your significant other about the gravy not being hot enough. Pour yourself whatever your favorite libation is, take a deep breath and proceed.
Whether you're a pro in the kitchen or a cook-only-when-necessary type, these recipes are simple enough for everyone to pull off and delicious enough to have your guests handing out high-fives like candy canes. Thanks to 9 seasons of 'Top Chef' along with Top Chef Masters and our other foodie-friendly shows, we've built up quite the recipe collection over here. Is traditional turkey your thing? Yep, we've got that. Feeling beefy this year? Check. Going vegetarian? Plenty of meat-free vittles to go around. Oh, and because everyone knows the best part about holidays is the apps and side dishes, please do indulge in those as well.
Anyone who's hosted the holidays can tell you there's more than just cooking involved. What should your decor plan be? How can you keep everyone from mixing up wine glasses? What size plates should you use? We've got you covered.
Whatever you've got a hankering for, allow Bravo to make your holiday a breeze. Because rememeber, that whole Mayan thing could happen, so eat up!
