I have followed Ali on Potuck Video for years and was very excited to buy a compilation of some of her favorite recipes!!! They are simple to follow, have easily procurable ingredients, appeal to all ages and are delicious! With today’s busy lifestyles, hosts or hostesses are often very happy to have guests bring something to a dinner party!! The recipes in Ali’s book are ideal for a stand alone appetizer or dessert or a complement to the main course!! I’ve taken two appetizers and a dessert from the cookbook to parties and they were well received!! So much so, that the guests wanted to buy a copy of the cookbook!! The photographs, personal anecdotes and suggestions for transporting and serving the items make this cookbook a must have!! -Ali Quen
This is wonderful cookbook - easy to follow recipes that are both visually appealing and delicious. One of the best features of the book is that recipes are accompanied with a section on "how to bring it" - so often you cook a dish to take to a party and it looks perfect when you put it together at your home but doesn't travel well. This book helps you cook beautiful, tasty dishes and then explains how to show off the dishes in their best light when you actually arrive at your destination. -Taragadgil
The title insinuates this book might only be for bringing or hosting- but the added gem of this book, and all the delicious food it contains, is simply all the amazing “make ahead” advice! Ali tells you how far in advance you can make it, or even how to make the component parts for quick cooking or assembly later. Amazing for busy meals when you want something delicious and no effort in the moment. And on top of the tasty food and helpful advice, I want to travel with Ali! She tells welcoming stories of places she has been, and her food mementos from those places-such that she clearly eats well on the road! I loved getting that added inspiration for the foods I’m cooking, and feeling like I get to know Ali, too. -Ingrill
