guess who’s coming to dinner

January 3, 2018

I hear that staying in is the new going out, and with temperatures as frío as ours, I have no problem with that. But I do love to be around people. It’s one of the reasons that I am challenged by winter ––  opportunities to connect with people, even curbside, are often crushed by cold. Enter the dinner party. We rarely host, and nor do our friends. But I think it’s high time we brought back the dinner party. We need not serve soufflés or beef wellingtons. Dinner can be a bowl of pasta or a curried soup, just something warm and cozy that’s easy to make. It’s such a luxury, for me anyway, to be cooked for, and to break bread with friends in the their own homes. Likewise, I love to entertain, and although I’m not a super cook, I can rustle up a decent risotto. Besides, as a smart New York Times writer once said, “to me it has always been clear that a dinner party is about what is said, not what is eaten.” When in doubt, serve cheese, and lots of it.
