Review quote

"There is handy advice on picking complementary textures and flavours, and pairing your 'arrangements' with drinks. Fussy but quite fun." -- The Lady "This little stunner is a fantastic guide to creating aesthetically pleasing, yet relatively simple, table spreads for any occasion, and is certain to remove the stress of wondering what to serve. The recipes are easy to make, brought together beautifully in 40 arrangements worthy of any get-together." -- Easy Food "What I admire most about Platters and Boards are its
easy-to-follow recipes, because putting good looking spreads together is
harder than it looks [...] There is a recipe for everyone in this
book." -- Sunday Times Ireland
