Julia’s Casual Dinners
Planning a large buffet for the holidays? An informal dinner? A barbecue? Julia offers a Buffet for 19 (featuring oysters and Turkey Orloff), a Chafing-Dish Dinner, and an Indoor/Outdoor Barbecue of butterflied lamb on the grill and homemade pitas. These menus–and four others–are packed with instructions on planning ahead, checking out staples, drawing up a shopping list, timing the meal, varying the menu, and creatively using leftovers. Instructive color photographs serve as a guide, showing ingredients, step-by-step procedures, and the finished dishes.
