ABOUT THE BOOK, available now, from Kensington Books:
Showbiz & Lifestyles personality NELSON ASPEN brings his fabulous hosting expertise into your own home with the release of his Happy, How-To Manual, "Let's Dish Up A Dinner Party!" Combining a dishy sense of humor with creative and easy-to-follow party throwing guidelines, the author guides you through the entire process of putting together YOUR special evening. From Stocking The Pantry, Setting the Stage and Whom to Invite, right through all the dinner courses and Saying Goodnight.
Along the way, Nelson serves up plenty of red-hot celebrity gossip, scores of tantalizing recipes (for example: "A Star is Born Caviar," "Bread from the Ex-Files," "Cancer the Crab Cakes," "Chicken? Dump Him, Darling!" "Nasty Nellie's Bitchin' Scones," "The Lord is My Shepherd's Pie" and "Oatmeal Raisin d'Etre Cookies") and practical advice & tips to make your next social gathering GAY in the truest sense of the word (Webster's Dictionary defines "gay" as being "keenly alive and merry!"). Plenty of Tinseltown types turn up not only in Nelson's hilarious personal stories, but as contributors. There's something for everyone--even a recipe for a glowing complexion! Charmingly illustrated complete with a Proper Place Setting, it's a book you'll not only find yourself reading for fun, but wanting to give as a hostess gift the next time you're INVITED to a dinner party!
Laugh and learn from Hollywood's seasoned Host with the Most, Nelson Aspen. His knack for getting people to relax and feel comfortable enough to open up and enjoy themselves applies to OFF camera as well as ON.
