CHANDLER, AZ -Fixing food for strangers is scary -- especially if they're picky eaters! To the rescue comes the Potluck Survival Guide: Care & Feeding of the Athletic Supporter, which makes pleasing the palate fast, easy, inexpensive, and fun for everyone.
Written for both beginning and experienced cooks, author Cherie Kimmons' collection of proven recipes has passed the buffet test with young and old alike. Perfect for tailgates, scout events, church dinners, school celebrations, and family gatherings, her recipes can be prepared in a number of ways to please a variety of palates.
At the heart of her book is a selection of classic recipes; however, Kimmons doesn't stop with food. This light-hearted guide has a wealth of tips for feeding younger children and nutritional considerations for student athletes. Rounding out the chapters are suggestions for organizing a buffet, menu ideas for athletes and their fans, quantity calculations, inexpensive decorating ideas, and sources for top-notch or hard-to-find ingredients. The Potluck Survival Guide is a handbook any entertainer, church organizer, parent, tailgater, or event organizer would be glad to own.
Kimmons brings to the table years of experience as a humor columnist, aerobics and nutrition instructor, parent volunteer, and baseball mom. Her Italian and Cajun-French background, populated with remarkable family cooks, adds a little spice to the mix.
