recipe for one

. . . ‘entertaining’ has many more shapes and forms than what the term often brings to mind. It can be the most elaborate and boisterous thing in the world, and it can also be quiet, personal, low-key, a meditative ritual we enjoy on our own. It can be planned, structured, and executed wonderfully, but it can also be last-minute, spontaneous, a team effort, and wonderfully imperfect.
