Description

Hostesses Carolina Buia and Isabel Gonzalez have been throwing parties with their signature Latin twists for years, not realizing that this phenomenon was taking hold across the nation. So the duo packed their bags and decided to share ten of their parties near and far, in places like New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, as well as Puerto Rico and Mexico.

With gatherings that range from casual and intimate to full-blown and formal, Latin Chic gives true inspiration to party hosts everywhere, no matter what the occasion. Turn a pool party into a sexy tapas affair featuring shaken Coconut Martinis and recipes for Asparagus Spears with Aioli Caviar Dip and Peruvian Tuna Ceviche.

For fresh, healthful fare, look to "Latina Ladies Who Lunch." Try the Avocado Butter served on Cuban crackers, Cilantro Soup garnished with almonds, and Guava Coolers and Virgin Mojitos. And for a truly unforgettable night, you can't beat a Carnival-themed dance party, complete with Caipirinhas, Pisco Sours, Brazilian Moqueca, and Passion Fruit Mousse.

But there's more to Latin Chic than just fabulous food. Carolina and Isabel offer up dozens of tips on decorating, music, attire, and more. Learn the significance behind many Latin traditions, from gaucho attire to cigar etiquette.

Hundreds of full-color photographs capture the lush, vibrant spirit of the Latin world, transporting you to polo match in the Argentine pampa or a romantic seaside dinner in the Dominican Republic. Each chapter features the fashions of renowned Latin designers, including Carolina Herrera to Narciso Rodriguez.

Let the parties begin with Latin Chic, and let Carolina Buia and Isabel Gonzalez be your hostesses.
