Exquisite photography, beautiful design, and hundreds of inspirations for entertaining with Florida flair are just some of the features that made the Junior League of Boca Raton’s cookbook, Savor the Moment: Entertaining without Reservations a tremendous success. Published in September 1999, the cookbook earned great praise from critics and in 2001 was presented the James Beard Foundation/Kitchenaid Book Award. This prestigious award was the first of the many accolades that have helped sell more than 40,000 cookbooks and resulted in a third printing this fall.
Savor the Moment illustrates the art of entertaining without reservations by assembling all of the ingredients to create special occasions at any cook’s fingertips. South Floridians pull from northern traditions and southern hospitality with equal grace and in Boca Raton, the blue sky and water, the sound of the surf, and the tropical air temper the culinary experience to create a cuisine that is at once Medeterranian, classical French, and uniquely American and fresh.
Savor the Moment is a multi-sensory tour of entertaining, with color photographs to enhance extensive tips on setting the mood of a party, planning the menu, accessories, and creative ideas for table settings – everything from the invitation to the afterglow. Thoroughly tested recipes are selected with care to inspire cooks to try something new and to prepare something old in a new way.
Proceeds from the sale of Savor the Moment benefit the Junior League of Boca Raton’s many community efforts which are focused upon the needs of families and the welfare of children in their community. For more information, please visit www.juniorleaguebr.com.
