Unlike most new cookbooks, You're All Invited isn't desperately trying to take up a position.

Synopsis

You're All Invited is Margot Henderson's first cookbook. Want to cook dinner for fifteen? Have fifty people for drinks and canapés? Feed your family comforting food at lunch time? Make an elegant dinner for eight? Transport quantities of food to a picnic so it doesn't spill and crumble? In You're All Invited, Margot Henderson, who cooks for between 30 to 200 people every day, shows you how: using her panache as a caterer for Arnold & Henderson and restaurateur at London's Rochelle Canteen, and drawing on her family life with Fergus Henderson and their three children, she provides 165 easy and delicious recipes for all occasions. 'Margot Henderson is one woman who knows how to throw a party . . . her long awaited cookbook is already gaining a similar status to [husband Fergus's] Nose to Tail books... one of those must-have cookbooks packed with easy recipes for every occasion, whether it's a romantic meal for two or a hangover breakfast' Crumbs Magazine 'Pick up Henderson's book immediately. You'll be glad you did . . . if [Margot] says you're invited, you should definitely go' Telegraph Magazine 'Oh, my word, this is an extra special cookery book. I have not enjoyed reading one as good as this for many years' Simon Hopkinson '"Generous, warm, relaxed, fun and stylish" - this is what Margot describes as the essentials for entertaining. Add to that delicious recipes, and you have this exceptional book from an exceptional woman' Ruth Rogers, The River Café 'Within this book there are recipes for every occasion and mood; all written with great simplicity and understanding. This is a wonderful cookbook that really makes one want to cook' Samantha Clark and Samuel Clark, Moro 'Sometimes I think Fergus is the second best cook in the Henderson family. This book proves it' David Chang, Momofuku Born in New Zealand, Margot Henderson moved to London when she was 20.
