Yummy Reads: Colin Cowie Chic

If you consider yourself the hostess with the mostess, you better get yourself a copy of party-planning guru Colin Cowie's latest book, Colin Cowie Chic. Although he's written several tomes, this one is a lifestyle guide that teaches you how to create an inviting home, entertain stylishly, and travel comfortably. The book is filled with tons of recipes and pictures of Colin's actual homes. A spectacular host, Colin goes above and beyond to make his guests feel welcome.

Some of his fabulous tips include secretly pulling back the covers to a houseguest's bed and always keeping puff pastry sausage rolls in the freezer for any impromptu events. He suggests serving South African and Australian wines because they are wonderfully affordable. Not into hosting parties? This book makes a great hostess gift.

I just purchased this book, and as a huge fan of Colin Cowie's work, this is by far the greatest! Chapter 4 is devoted towards entertaining, and is filled with the most creative ideas. The entire book is a gem. I definitely agree that this makes a great hostess gift or a gift for someone who likes to entertain/decorate/live a fabulous chic life. Two thumbs up!!!!
