Honest Entertaining®

Tired of being Martha-ized? Feeling as if you're a failure unless you grind your own wheat, grow your own yeast,  raise your own beef? Expecting the impossible from yourself, all while cooking a sit-down dinner for 25? Well, relax! Take a deep breath. We've been there--and we ain't ever going back. Honest Entertaining is as much of a state of mind as a way to cook. And you'll find that state of mind reflected in our recipes and our series of programs including technique videos and podcasts. It's real food for real people for good times. It's knock-it-out-of-the-park dishes that are smart, easy, and let you be a cook, not a domestic god/goddess. You know they say about false idols....
