Secrets Weapons for the Best Rendezvous
May 6, 2008

Rendezvous on the Ridge is the ultimate guide for carrying on that spirit. It’s loaded with the ultimate recipes that will become your ‘secret weapons’ for hosting the best parties, livening up potlucks, and keeping bellies satisfied and full at home.

This warm and elegant book has 215 recipes for every day and every occasion. The recipes range from homestyle comfort food, like Two-Cheese Squash Casserole and Old-Fashioned Meat Loaf, to more modern fare, such as Tortellini and Sun-dried Tomato Salad and Crab Meat Quiche.

The ‘Soups and Salads’ chapter is loaded with exotic options for tasty salads, appropriate for light lunches or sharing at potlucks. The thorough ‘Appetizers and Beverages’ chapter has so many exciting recipes that a great hostess may not ever have to serve the same snacks twice. Although, upon tasting the Hats-Off Stuffed Mushrooms, French Quarter Praline Cheese Spread, or Pomegranate Margarita, they’ll surely demand repeats.

Rendezvous on the Ridge also offers 20 menus for various occasions. The not-so-basic Sunday Brunch features Sweet Mustard Bacon, Hot Curried Fruit and Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins. The Supper Club menu suggests Fried Green Tomatoes with Roasted Red Pepper Remoulade Sauce and Tuscan Pork Chops, among other amazing entrees.

Another chapter that can’t go unrecognized is the one dedicated entirely to chocolate. The “Chocolate” chapter has 19 recipes that center around heavenly chocolate. Create the German Chocolate Cake to make someone feel really special.
