The most wonderful time of the year is here! Our Holiday Entertaining Guide has all the recipes, tips and inspiration you need to pull off any type of festive gathering, from cocktail parties to a Hanukkah vodka and latke party to a truly memorable Christmas dinner. Plus, this year we’re featuring a make-ahead holiday menu and entertaining tips from bestselling-author Ina Garten.
Ina’s make-ahead holiday dinner features festive dishes that can be made ahead, so you’ll have more time to enjoy the party. Ina also offers her favorite make-ahead strategies from her new book, Make It Ahead, and entertaining tips on how to throw beautiful, effortless dinner parties with minimum stress.
Our cozy Christmas feast is full of comforting dishes to pass and share — and we even have timelines and planners to help you stay organized. We’ve also asked experts for their top tips on choosing holiday wines and setting the perfect table. And we haven’t forgotten about Christmas breakfast, a morning we look forward to all year; our menu is easy to prep in advance and can serve a crowd.
You’ll love our Hanukkah menu, which features a twist on tradition: inventive latkes paired with classic vodka cocktails. Learn how to make your best latkes yet with advice from chefs, and read a mixologist’s overview of all things vodka for a primer on the spirit.
Then, it’s on to the parties! We’ll help you bring cheer to the season with our menus and guides (and even playlists!) for unforgettable celebrations with the ones you love, from a casual open house to an elegant New Year’s Eve bash.
Get ready for your most magical holiday yet — we’re here to help.
