Recipes include essentials for a bridal shower, hors d’oeuvres for holiday parties, the perfect lobster bake, and more. The Preppy Cookbook provides a variety of recipes for all (preppy) occasions. The photographs and illustrations are charming too (see below).
The back cover includes "Preppy Rules to Live By." My favorites are: Lobsters can and should be cracked with your hands and no bloodies after 3 P.M. I laughed out loud several times while reading this book. Just the right amount of humor!
|Here are the categories: The Formative Years, Summer and the Living is Easy, The Sporting Life, The Grand Tour, Brunch as a Verb, The Cocktail Party, Luncheons and Showers, and Home for the Holidays.|
