Deborah Hutton Entertaining Made Easy book on The Life Creative“I hear people say, ‘I don’t have the time’, or, ‘I can’t cook and it’s too hard’, but this guide is guaranteed to make at-home entertaining easy and will hopefully go a long way to reigniting people’s passion for entertaining at home,” Deborah explains.

The 240-page hardcover book combines more than 70 recipes in total, along with Deb’s personal favourites that she’s collected over the years.

“It’s all you need to know when it comes to being the host with the most,” she adds.

I’m going to pop this book on my Christmas wishlist, because if it’s one thing I struggle with, it’s entertaining. I do love to style, and decorating is my thing, but the timing and logistics that goes into preparing meals for other people always give me frown lines I just don’t need.

Entertaining Made Easy with Deborah Hutton ($39.99 RRP) is available from all leading book outlets and online at from 1 November.
