Additional Details

Description: The accent in this book is on hospitality, both in delectable meals prepared for family and friends and in comfortable and attractive seating available to guests at the Museum. The title, Please Be Seated, comes from the MFA's collection of furniture masterpieces by contemporary American craftsmen. Made from a variety of woods, metals, plastic, ceramic, and glass, the chairs and benches in this collection are placed throughout the Museum's galleries to provide visitors with opportunities to sit, relax, and enjoy the art -- and it is in such a spirit that this appetizing volume was conceived. 

Please Be Seated combines sixty-two stunning illustrations of these contemporary furniture pieces and art objects from all the Museum's departments with more than one hundred seventy-five recipes for everything from innovative hors d'oeuvres to appealing main courses to sumptuous desserts. It also includes a guide to ingredients and helpful information about preparation methods and equipment. Written by the authors of the celebrated Boston Tea Parties cookbook, Please Be Seated is a treasure trove for anyone who enjoys cooking, fine furnishings, and the subtle art of entertaining well.
