Do you find hosting dinner parties intimidating or stressful? Let Natasha Feldman, cooking show host, private chef, producer, and food stylist, change your mind in this delightful conversation about her new book, The Dinner Party Project. We chat about how her book serves as your culinary best friend, breaking down all the reasons people think they can’t throw a dinner party and helping you find the perfect party style that meets you where you’re at.
We also explore the importance of maintaining relationships through hosting dinner parties and how they can increase our overall happiness. With the pandemic altering our social habits, now is the perfect time to reinvest in ourselves and redefine how we want to host these events. Natasha shares her tips for making the experience easier, even if it means buying pre-made meals from the store.
Lastly, we dive into the world of books, bookstores, and reading as Natasha shares her journey writing her cookbook and offers advice on making hosting a dinner party stress-free. We discuss our love for historical fiction, childhood favorite books, and local indie bookstores.
