Synopsis:

Anyone who's ever wanted to entertain like the cream of society will treasure this lavish cook-book that showcases the dinner party magic of the world's great hosts and hostesses, from the most celebrated hostess of them all. Nan Kempner, the reigning queen of New York society, is renowned for her passion for stylish entertainment. In her first book, R.S.VP, she profiles two dozen of her favourite hosts and hostesses and presents an exclusive glimpse into their lives, houses, and glorious ways of entertaining. With photographer Quentin Bacon in tow, Nan attended parties both intimate and grand from Venice to San Francisco. Through her discerning eyes we enjoy cocktail tidbits in diplomatic circles with Deeda Blair in D.C., a ladies' luncheon with Princess Marie Chantal of Greece, and Lynn Wyatt's Texas-sized cookout, to name just a few. R.S.VP. takes us inside some of the most beautiful houses in the world, many photographed here for the first time.

And best of all, Nan has persuaded these gifted hosts to part with their closely guarded recipes and to divulge their tried-and-true approaches to creating elegant but lively gatherings that are a wonderful experience for guests and hosts alike.
